For diner owner Gia Morelli, her seasonal fall menu calls for two main ingredients—maple syrup and murder . . .
While the first hints of autumn grace Boggy Creek, Florida, Gia misses the colorful harvest traditions she left behind in New York. On a scramble to make new fall memories—and promote her irresistible pumpkin spice waffles—things take a dark turn when she gets roped into the Haunted Town Festival, a spooky celebration held on deserted farmlands. The desolate area conjures plenty of eerie vibes at night, but Gia and her best friend, Savannah, are nearly frightened to death upon the discovery of the event organizer’s body buried in the nearby woods. More alarming, the local rumor mill says the woman’s shady dealings may have egged someone into sending her to an early grave. Now, there’s no shortage of creepy clues to feast on as Gia and her pals try to stop a killer with a very scary appetite .
This is the fourth book in the All-Day Breakfast Cafe Mystery series by Lena Gregory.
I was introduced to Lena Gregory from her Bay Island Psychic mystery series. And since I love that series, I knew this one would be a home run too!
Gia and her best friend, Savannah are questioned by Hunt and Leo about the death of a local event organizer. They uncover a string of blackmail that giver quite a few suspects a motive to kill the woman.
This is one of those books where you just don’t see the killer coming. And then after the reveal you are still scratching your head saying “Really?” I was totally blown away by how expertly the author fooled me. Definitely want to read more books in this series if this is how they will wash out in the end. What a great book!
If you like cozy mysteries, definitely check this one out. You won’t be disappointed.
