GIVEAWAY and Review of Final Sentence by Daryl Wood Gerber

FINALSENTENCE-widget

The Final Sentence

About Final Sentence:

Welcome to A Cookbook Nook Mystery series, where Jenna Hart, an avid reader, admitted foodie, and new owner of a cookbook store and café in picturesque Crystal Cove, California, is up to her neck in trouble when she finds her college roommate, celebrity chef Desiree Divine, buried on the beach, and a fellow shop owner accuses Jenna of murder.

My Review:

This book was an awesome cozy mystery.  It is set in a wonderful fictional town by the California coast.  I would love to visit this charming location for sure.  It is also filled with quirky characters that I can't wait to visit again.  It has everything a great cozy needs, food, animals, and it left me guessing till the very end.  There were a lot of suspects, but Daryl did a wonderful job because I had no idea who the killer was, and I love that in a cozy.  If you are an animal lover, there is a really cute kitty in this story that you will fall in love with.  I can't wait to go back to Crystal Cove again, please hurry Daryl and get the next book out!!!!!!!  Great job.

I received complimentary copy of this book for my honest review
