To save her cozy Florida diner, Gia Morelli must choke down a heaping helping of murder . . .
New York native Gia Morelli is just getting used to life in Florida when she gets word that the town government wants to shut down her pride and joy: the charming little diner known as the All-Day Breakfast Café. A forgotten zoning regulation means that the café was opened illegally, and hardboiled council president Marcia Steers refuses to budge. Gia is considering hanging up her apron and going back to New York, but before she gives up on her dream, she discovers something shocking in the local swamp: Marcia Steers, dead in the water. There’s a secret buried in the books at town hall, and someone killed to keep it hidden. To save her café and bring a killer to justice, Gia and her friends will have to figure out a killer’s recipe for murder . . .
What I Thought:
The was the second installment in the All-day Breakfast Cafe Mystery Series and it was just as good as the first in the series. It was nice visiting with Gia and her friends again. In this one, Gia is out for a walk and stumbles upon the body of a woman who wanted to talk to her the day before about a zoning regulation. So Gia has to prove that she did not kill the council president and also find out what secrets are at the Town Hall. I really enjoyed the read the writing was superb and made the story flow very well. The plot was very well thought-out and believable and I was left guessing up to the very end.
I received a complimentary copy of this book.
