The food truck craze has reached the charming coastal town of South Cove, California, but before Jill Gardner—owner of Coffee, Books, and More—can sample the eats, she has to shift gears and put the brakes on a killer . . .
Now that Kacey Austin has got her new gluten-free dessert truck up and running, there’s no curbing her enthusiasm—not even when someone vandalizes the vehicle and steals her recipes. But when Kacey turns up dead on the beach and Jill’s best friend Sadie becomes the prime suspect, Jill needs to step on it to serve the real killer some just desserts.
I could not wait to go back to South Cove and meet again Jill, Greg and the other amazing inhabitants.
Jill is the owner of Coffee, Books and More, she enjoys reading, making racing with her dog Emma, spending quiet and relaxing evening with her boyfriend, the detective Greg. Her friend proposes her to spend a different day than usual, and practicing a new sport, geocaching. There she meets Kasey, the wife of Dustin Austin, the man who had an affair with her friend Sadie and had broken her heart. Kasey is going to open a new business, she wants to sell gluten free products. Jill would hate her in solidarity with her friend but she is very nice. Kasey is the victim of some acts of vandalism before being killed. The prime suspect is Sadie, and,although Greg requires her to not investigate, Jill will do everything to find the real culprit and save her friend.
I like the story of Greg and Jill, is becoming deeper with be followed in the series. Very interesting the introduction to geocaching, I had never heard about it, and, although Greg and Jill have not found it funny, I'd like very much to try.
This was a fun and enjoyable read. The plot kept me on edge from start to finish. I was excited each time I got to turn the page. This book was beautifully written and the characters had so much depth that you felt as though you knew them.
If you have never read this series, then I highly recommend that you do. You won't be disappointed.
