Southern hospitality meets deadly deception in the start of a charming new mystery series from the USA Today bestselling author of the Java Jive novels.
Quinn Bellandini loves her life in Savannah, Georgia, where she runs her grandfather’s B&B with her sister, Delilah. From baking fresh scones and serving up grits every morning to ensuring the guests see the best of their historic city, Quinn can’t imagine doing anything else—even if it means dealing with nuisances like the occasional malfunctioning commode. But when Quinn drops by the local restaurant owned by her friend Drew Green, and stumbles upon a murder, her whole world comes crashing down.
Drew’s brother was always a little surly, but Quinn can’t imagine that someone disliked the prickly chef enough to kill him. The police, on the other hand, don’t believe that Quinn was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. Before her guests can even digest the next morning’s gourmet breakfast, Quinn learns that she and Drew are suspects.
Drew thinks they should do some investigating of their own. Quinn is pretty sure she’s better suited to playing hostess than amateur sleuth. But with Delilah as her cynical sidekick, Quinn starts looking for the real killer—before she gets put away faster than you can say “sugar.”

What I Thought:

This was a great start to a new series.  I do not read a lot of cozies with a  paranormal element, but I enjoyed this one and I thought the character interactions with the resident ghost, Fred, were spot on.  Quinn and her sister Delilah are helping their grandfather run a B & B in Savannah (in which the resident ghost resides).  Quinn goes to visit her friend Drew at his restaurant and stumbles upon a murder.  Of course, Quinn and Drew end up being the main suspects, so they decide to investigate to see who the real killer is.  This one kept my attention and had all the aspects I like in a cozy, some great relationships among the characters, and humor.  This one flowed well and kept me guessing.  I would have liked a little more background on Quinn and Drew, but the descriptions of the city were amazing.

I received a complimentary copy of this book.
