When her first day as owner of Cinnamon Bakery (check the make) brings an unwanted surprise in the form of an emailed special invitation to free goodies at the Grand Reopening of the baker, Riley thinks that things couldn’t get any worse. She shifts into gear and addresses that problem only to be faced with a dead body in her bathroom, the body of a local recluse who has obviously died from a reaction to nuts. The problem with that is the bakery has been a nut free zone since an early incident many years ago. To Riley, that spells murder, but the police see it as an accident, but Riley cant let it go.
Her snooping opens more than one can of worms, possibly affecting how she has viewed her whole life and definitely affecting her present and her future.
I am looking forward to more books in this series.
Although the police think the death was just an accident, Riley is sure it was murder and sets out to find the killer. Soon, she's embroiled in all kinds of drama courtesy of the victim's family, and she uncovers some unsettling facts about the deceased that directly affect her. At the same time, she finds herself at the center of a love triangle with two childhood friends that turns into a quadrangle when the crazy ex of one arrives in town intent on causing trouble.
The murder mystery in this story was compelling, with lots of suspects who all seemed to have a good motive and be nutty (Ha!) enough to do it. Two scenes in the book stood out to me as being real nail-biters (one in which Riley has to escape a life-threatening situation and another where she comes face-to-face with the unhinged killer) and I applaud the author for deftly handling those suspenseful moments and making me feel like I was in Riley's shoes. I wasn't as captivated by the heroine's love life, but maybe that's because she knew both guys long before the story started. So, there were no falling-in-love moments. She did end up choosing one of her suitors at the end of the story, so hopefully that romance will get some good development in the next book.
Riley discovers that somehow the murder is tied to her. She enlists the help of friends and family to help solve the murder. All she really wants is to return to her bakery kitchen.
This was a good mystery that kept me guessing until the very end. I gave the killer a fleeting thought, but was thoroughly surprised when the mystery was revealed.
I would, and have, recommended this book, and also purchased a copy for my library. I hope they will be another book so that we may find out what happens with the relationships of Will and Riley, Max and Tara, and Grams and Julius. What happens with Erica, or Will now that they are no longer with Jared and Riley?
I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated for my review, and I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed here is my own.
The concept for this series was a fictional town on the Washington coast. Each author pens a cozy mystery that revolves around a particular resident but intertwines with the town as a whole. This the third in the series. Each author will turn out additional mysteries with their character in the future. It probably doesn't hurt that I already read and enjoy the authors that are involved so their writing is a known commodity.
Congrats to them on what I think is an innovative idea and what I expect to be a successful series. Though I do hope the authors involved continue to move their other series forward as well.
