For Florida diner owner Gia Morelli, there’s no such thing as too much breakfast—unless it kills you . . .
When Gia Morelli’s marriage falls apart, she knows it’s time to get out of New York. Her husband was a scam artist who swindled half the millionaires in town, and she doesn’t want to be there when they decide to take revenge. On the spur of the moment, she follows her best friend to a small town in Central Florida, where she braves snakes, bears, and giant spiders to open a cheery little diner called the All-Day Breakfast Café. Owning a restaurant has been her lifelong dream, but it turns into a nightmare the morning she opens her dumpster and finds her ex-husband crammed inside. As the suspect du jour, Gia will have to scramble fast to prove her innocence before a killer orders another cup of murder . . .

What I Thought:

This is the first in a new series by Lena Gregory, The All-Day Breakfast Café Series, and it was a great start to the series.  In this one, Gia is a recently divorced New Yorker who moves to Florida to be near her best friend.  She opens and all-day breakfast café and one day, she finds her ex-husband's dead body stuffed in the dumpster.  She has to set out to prove her innocence.  This story flowed very well and was an easy read.  The friendship between Gia and Savannah is very strong.  It is a friendship most people long to have.  The mystery was very well thought out and the plot was very believable.  This was a well thought out mystery that left me guessing until the very end.

I received a complimentary copy of this book.

Lena Gregory lives in a small town on the south shore of eastern Long Island with her husband and three children.

When she was growing up, she spent many lazy afternoons on the beach, in the yard, anywhere she could find to curl up with a good book. She loves reading as much now as she did then, but she now enjoys the added pleasure of creating her own stories.
