Jill Gardner—owner of Coffee, Books, and More—has somehow been talked into sponsoring a 5k race along the beautiful California coast. The race is a fundraiser for the local preservation society—but not everyone is feeling so charitable…
The day of the race, everyone hits the ground running…until a local business owner stumbles over a very stationary body. The deceased is the vicious wife of the husband-and-wife team hired to promote the event—and the husband turns to Jill for help in clearing his name. But did he do it? Jill will have to be very careful, because this killer is ready to put her out of the running…forever!
It 's an enjoyable, fun and fast-paced read, the mystery is riveting, the characters are realistic and engaging. As soon as I started reading this one, I could not put it down. The plot had me hooked from the first page.
Jill Gardner is one of the organizers of the 5k race, is for charity, to find the funds to the local preservation society. Unfortunately, the day of the race, is found dead the woman who, with her husband, had helped to promote the event. Jill had noticed immediately that they did not get along, their marriage was over, but what could have happened? Will she make her boyfriend happy and will stand out from the investigation? This is not the only mystery to solve, The Train Station, the shop of elder Harrold, undergoes strange acts of vandalism. It's the fifth book in the series "A Tourist Trap Mystery" but you do not have to have read the others to enjoy this one! It's the second I read and I like more and more this street full of cute shops with colorful owners and Jill, investigator with a passion for books. I really enjoy Lynn's writing style. Often she makes me laugh. Definitely going to go find and read her other titles.
I received a free ebook version of this from the publisher, Kensington Books, via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
