The only person who is liked less than Cat is her impending groom Chip Forester, who himself jilted the town hair stylist in favor of the runaway bride. However, it is Cat who drops dead after being fed a piece of her wedding cake laced with peanuts and inducing a fatal allergic reaction in the bride. Police suspicion falls on Cat’s aunt and cousin, owners of The Bakery that created the tiered wedding cake, and Cousin Georgia’s sudden disappearance is definitely not a good indicator of her innocence.
In the small coastal California town of eight-thousand everyone knows everyone, gossip flies, and it seems that all of the residents had some relationship with or reason to kill Cat. Even Cinnamon’s father’s new, and very young, girlfriend had her previous relationship destroyed by the predatory Cat. Faced with the challenge of forging a new life in a town that remembers her previous one, Cinnamon is given a boost when she meets Danny Decker, a diving instructor who accompanies her, her father, and his new girlfriend on their Wednesday Warriors dives. That Danny’s own marriage was torn apart by his brief affair with Cat is a stumbling block but hopefully not a fatal one. As Cinnamon begins to question the events at wedding she places herself and her father at risk as their studio and even their homes become targets for a relentless killer.
A devoted scuba diver and a former writer and photographer for Skin Diver Magazine, author
Bonnie J. Cardone incorporates alluring but never overwhelming details of diving and photography that add fascinating details to the story and make it entirely unique. The attacks upon Cinnamon seem a little extreme but the emotions behind the violence are entirely too real and human. At this point in her life Cinnamon has regained some of her confidence and it is refreshing to see her take a mature approach to her ex-husband, neither vengeful nor gullible to his charms. Her relationships with her father and Danny are also very realistically played out in a manner that makes them all very likable and sympathetic. The charm of this quickly moving story lies with its characters who are never too over-the-top and scenery that is beautiful and serene.
The biggest news in her small hometown is the wedding of Cat Callahan. She's a vile human being, who has chased after every woman's boyfriend in town. Her only redeeming factor are her captivating good looks. The only people who shed a tear when she dies on her wedding night are her parents.
Apparently, an allergic reaction to something in the wedding cake is what killed the bride. The bakers are suspected of purposely adding peanuts to the cake.
Cinnamon and her father know that the bakers wouldn't hurt anyone, even though the daughter has suddenly become very secretive. They go out of their way to find out who made the poisoned cake.
The book is a quick read. I read it in less than two days.
Well, couldn't do anything but rate the stars on my Kindle?!? Since then have finished #2 and halfway through #3. Looking forward to more!
If I can, will post a photo of Bonnie, lower left, with some of her Women Diver Hall of Fame gals.
This well crafted mystery keeps you guessing until its resolved. I look forward to the next Cinnamon Greene adventure!
