When a local businesswoman is found dead at her apartment building, Crescent Creek is abuzz with suspicions and theories. With the way the victim had been acting before her death, Katie suspects there might be more than meets the eye to the murder. When Dina calls her in to help, she knows this one will be a doozy of a case.

This mystery was interesting in the sense that we got to see the character and interact with them. Though there is a lot that we will never know about the victim, we got to see the changes in her personality before the murder. We also get to see the investigation into another crescent creek resident in this book.

I enjoyed the freedom Katie had in this book. Dina came to her as a consult which was interesting. It was fun to see her have free reign looking into the mystery. We got to explore crescent creek a little more which was fun. W also got to learn a little more about Zack’s work at the newspaper. Sadly it only comes up now and then in this series. I would really like more information about Zack in a future book.

Overall, it was an enjoyable book. Better than other books in this series.

Cresent Creek’s own celebrate cupcake shop owner is on the up an up. With culinary camp around the corner and a book deal, Jane’s hard work is paying off. However, when Katie finds her dead in her own kitchen things start coming to light that maybe not everything is a rosy as it appeared on the outside. With multiple threats and the breaking of her storefront window the day before her death, it looks like someone had reason to kill her. Katie works hard to figure out who wanted her dead and for what reason, as she seemed to be loved by everyone.

We got to find out about people around Crescent Creek in this book. Due to the mystery being centred around an influencer in the cooking community in town. We got the full story behind the murder and what lead up to it. The history between the murderer and the murder victim was very interesting and was explained throughout the book.

I enjoyed seeing Katie working full force in this book. She felt more like a pi in this book than a baker. Though she was still at the bakery very often so it didn’t feel so disjointed. She does manage to figure out a lot about the murder victim even though they were friends before the incident.

I enjoyed the book.

Crescent Creek might seem like a quiet town, and on most days that is not wrong. However, when the head of the library comes to Kate with a suspicious letter addressed to the known scammer in town. Kate works through the death threat and finds out that there is much more going on that what it appears on the surface.

Well, this is a fun book. We get to see the budding relationship between Zack and Kate which is nice. I was afraid that they were going to see high school exes be put back together again. As fun Trent is, and they do make a nice pair, I am enjoying Kate getting to know Zack and starting her life over again in Crescent Creek.Well, this is a fun book.

I enjoy seeing Kate work as a PI even though she is adamant that she isn’t working as a PI but she has worked in the field for 10 years so it’s hard to break the habit. I also like how, though he doesn’t completely agree with it, Zack doesn’t try to change her. Though Trent does belly ache about Kate putting herself in danger, he also doesn’t try to change her but just asks her to be careful. He feels a lot more like an older brother than an Ex-boyfriend.

The mystery was interesting, as was the character development throughout. Though the victim was treated like one, he wasn’t all that innocent. We still felt for all of the characters, which I really like in a book.
Overall, this book was really enjoyable.
