Ever since cafe owner Krissy Hancock settled into a relationship and mostly forgot about old flames, life has become surprisingly serene. Too bad her father, famed mystery writer James Hancock, had to pay an unexpected visit to Death by Coffee and brew up a batch of trouble...
While caught off-guard by her dad s presence, Krissy never dreamed he d become the biggest murder suspect in town. But that s exactly what happens when James s boorish agent a man he allegedly fired just hours earlier is found cold and lifeless, a still-warm vanilla latte resting by his hand...
With Pine Hills divided over her father s innocence and a fanatical fan keen on locking the author away for safe keeping, Krissy must end the madness and identify the real criminal even if that means meeting an ex or two along the way. But as her social life becomes increasingly chaotic, Krissy may be caught in a case that s far too hot to handle..."
Krissy Hancock owns the coffee house/book store named Death by Coffee. This also happens to be the name of her father’s popular book. He is an author and is a pretty famous one.
He shows up unexpectedly one day in her shop and she had no idea he was coming. He is putting out a new book and he is having his book release party at her bookstore/cafe. Then Dad becomes suspect #1 when his agent is found dead.
This book had a lot of twists and turns. I had a hard time trying to figure out whodunit because there were so many good suspects. I love this series because it always surprises me and keeps me guessing.
Definitely check out all the books in this series. Very worth the read.
I received this as an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) in return for an honest review. I thank Net Galley, the publisher and the author for allowing me to read this title.
