Synopsis from Goodreads...

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.

My Review

Jill Gardner owns the Coffee, Books, and More shop in the small town of South Cove, California and she plans to expand her business to owning a food truck. Unfortunately for her, she loses a bid for a food truck to Kacey Austin. Kacey is turning the food truck into a gluten-free dessert truck – something Jill just can’t compete with.

Jill’s good friend Sadie has just been dumped by her boyfriend. To her shock, he happens to be Kacey’s husband. Sadie had no clue the man was even married. Now she finds out he’s been using her for her recipes which he gave to Kacey. Even more shocking, Kacey turns up dead and sweet Sadie is the number one suspect. Jill is determined to prove her friend’s innocence.

I love this series more with each book. This is another fun visit to South Cove. I feel like I live there myself. It’s so quaint, well…except for the murders that keep happening there. LOL

I was totally absorbed in the book. The story isn’t very complex, easy to follow and moves along at a steady pace. I wasn’t particularly shocked at who the killer turned out to be but that’s fine. I enjoyed getting to the end.

This mystery is self-contained and you don’t really need to read the whole series. However, I think it’s more enjoyable to start with book number one so you can get to know all the characters as well as I did.

Can’t wait for the next installment in this series.
