Welcome to the Bean Hive where the gossip is as hot as the coffee!
I picked up one of the books. Just like I remember, the first page of the book there was BANNED stamped inside. Running my fingers over it made me smile.
“Alexis?” I called. “Pepper, here,” I scolded him when he ran through an open door that had a sign clearly marked: Alexis Only. “Can’t you read?”
I tsk’d, knowing she was probably back there doing inventory and getting ready for the big grand opening. Or even ready to come back out and put up a nicer banned book display.
“Alexis?” I called when I walked through the door. “Alexis?” My voice cracked when I saw a pair of feet sticking out from behind a desk. “Alexis!” I screamed when I saw her lifeless body on the ground with a doughnut that looked very familiar and the word BANNED stamped on her forehead, the stamp lying next to her.

In this book Christmas has come to Honey Springs, Kentucky. The town is decorated and Roxy has been busy with making holiday blend coffee, making special treats and planning the Christmas Day supper. That’s right. Roxy is hosting a big Christmas supper at the Bean Hive Coffee Shop. She has been busy as a bee with little time to just enjoy her husband of one year. So Roxy and Patrick go out for dinner hoping for a nice romantic night out. Unfortunately they are seated next to a couple who are loudly arguing. Driving home, they notice they are behind the arguing couple when they witness the truck cross the line, go through the trees and into the lake! Patrick dives in to rescue the couple. Unfortunately the man is dead. The sheriff is suspicious and, when his suspicions are confirmed, the wife is the number one suspect. Did she do it?
I love the town, the people and the pets in this series. I feel at home in it. One thing I especially adore about it, is the author has woven pet adoption into the series. Each book has a little background story going about it. I love that the author cares about animals enough to keep that reminder that pets need a home. I look forward to reading about the pet up for adoption in each book. Roxy, Patrick and the supporting characters are realistically written. I feel like I know them and could just step into the Bean Hive for some coffee and gossip with them. The mystery in this book wasn’t an easy one. There are a few suspects. With people not being completely honest, finding the killer could prove fatal.
Aunt Maxi was being her usual self throughout the book, and even though she got drunk interviewing a bartender for Roxy, the info that came from it was a good lead. The rescue pet was a cute rabbit this time that ended up being adopted and named Jingles after a cat in a children's story. The Christmas party at the end was the perfect wrap-up for the book.
Roxy and Patrick hear a couple fighting while out for dinner and then end up witnesses to them driving into the icy cold lake. Patrick dives in to save them but can only save the wife, Yvonne.
The wife becomes the prime suspect in what is now a murder case of her husband Ryan. Is she guilty??
Well we all know that means Roxy will find a way to nose around into the murder.
Plenty of suspects, lots of twists and turns really kept me guessing until the end. Wonderful holiday read, with southern charm and humor. I loved my trip back to Honey Springs!
