Honey Springs is on the verge of reopening their boardwalk area to locals and out of town visitors. The Bean Hive, Roxie's coffeehouse, is in a prime spot right on the boardwalk. Roxie couldn't be happier.
Until Alexis Roarke, owner of the Crooked Cat Bookstore, is found dead. By Roxie, no less. And who quickly becomes the main suspect? Aunt Maxi. So now Roxie has to use her sleuthing skills she'd learned in law school to track down the killer to get her aunt off the hook.
I loved this book! Mrs. Kappes has a talent for getting her readers to absolutely fall in love with her characters. It is so easy to fall right into their lives. They feel like your friends. And you definitely feel that way about the citizens of Honey Springs.
I try to guess the killer before he/she is revealed at the end. I was trying to make what I thought was the least likely person, the guilty party. Everything they said/did I was all, "Mmmm-hmmm. That's because you're a killer." And, "That's suspicious activity, because you're a KILLER!" lol! But I was so very wrong. The killer was a complete surprise to me. I love that.
I definitely recommend this book. It's a page turner, for sure. :)
Scene of the Grind follows this successful route. We meet Roxy, a smart lawyer who has returned to her Aunt's home. She left behind a divorce and her practice determined to successfully operate a coffee shop. The dead body doesn't even slow her down!
I had a fun time with this book. Fun is why I choose to read cozy mysteries. They have a down home feel combined with a generous sprinkling of comedy and a bit of colorful language, no not adult language. The country sayings that bring a smile to your face. The mystery is almost a secondary, minor, player for me. Though Ms Kappes did throw me off the scent a time or two, horrifying me with one suspect.
The book is a clean read, one you can feel good about sharing with anyone. I am looking forward to more adventures with Roxy and the gang in Honey Springs, Kentucky.
