Kelly pulled into the harbor parking lot next to the pier and noticed that Amber’s car wasn’t in its usual place and there was no sign of her. She was usually standing at the door of Kelly’s Koffee Shop, waiting for Kelly to open up. Wonder what that’s all about, she thought.

The local residents of Cedar Bay come to Kelly’s Koffee Shop for breakfast, lunch, and lots of gossip. Kelly serves it all up as she works to solve the murder of the high school Homecoming Queen. The townspeople can’t believe what has happened in their sleepy little Oregon seaside town. She identifies five prime suspects, but which one did it?

Follow Kelly, her boxer dog, Rebel, and her boyfriend, Mike, the county sheriff, as they try to determine who the killer is in a murder that’s shocked the town.

Kelly’s Coffee Shop is a mouth-watering cozy mystery with recipes!

If you’re in the mood for mystery and murder, but want a lighter story, this is a great choice. Plus it takes place in a seaside town and that’s always a bonus.

Kelly is trying to find out who murdered Amber, one of her employees and a school cheerleader. Her boyfriend Mike is the sheriff and he keeps telling her to stop interfering with the investigation. Does she listen? Of course not.

She is a little braver than I would be, meeting seedy characters in the seedy part of town, in the dark no less. There a quite a few interesting (to say the least) characters and I was really engrossed in the story.

A good quick read that was entertaining and had a few recipes at the end.
