Murder at the Grill
by Christa Nardi

Murder at the Grill
(Cold Creek Book 3)

Cozy Mystery
Self Published
Print Length: 204 pages


An amateur sleuth, Sheridan Hendley jumps at the chance to work with the defense when a favorite waitress is arrested for the murder of her ex-husband. Determined to prove Zoe’s innocence Sheridan probes into the victim’s past and why he chose to return to Cold Creek 15 years after the divorce. Personalities clash and Zoe’s family closes ranks as Sheridan attempts to unlock the carefully kept secrets of the family that owns and operates the Grill. The closer she gets to finding the truth, the more her own life might be in danger – a situation that strains her increasingly serious relationship with Detective Brett McMann.

What I Thought:

I was a little lost in this one because I haven't read the first two in this series.  This one apparently picks up where the last one left off.  It is well written and has a very good plot.  I thought it was pretty fast paced because you learn of the murder in the very first chapter.  I liked all the characters in this book and I also liked the setting.  If you are looking for a fast-paced, entertaining read, then this is the book for you.

I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review.
