I'm also joining in Book Beginnings on Friday. It's hosted by Rose City Reader

I hope to read this one soon.  It sounds like a good cozy, although it might make me hungry 😀

First Chapter

Sleepy Creek had a million secrets.  

Some of them drifted just below the surface like crispy French fries trapped beneath a well of oil, others were as juicy as, well, as a sumptuous beefy burger.  Those were the secrets that intrigued me the most.

From 56% on my Kindle...

My mouth was a water fountain at work thanks to the smells and sights.  Jarvis outdid himself very time.  

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Boston Homicide Detective, Christie Watson, wants nothing less than to bury her head in the sand in her hometown, Sleepy Creek, Ohio. Placed on sabbatical for a little ‘over-enthusiasm,’ Chris has to stay out of trouble or risk losing her job for good, and Sleepy Creek, with its clapboard homes and peaceful milieu, seems just the place to do that. But returning to Sleepy Creek means facing the one cold case she’s never solved: her mother’s murder.

The past becomes the least of her worries, however, when a man is murdered in her best friend’s back yard. Griselda, awesome human being all-round and owner of the local Burger Bar – serving scrumptious delights like the Mexican Fiesta Burger – is the prime suspect. To make matters worse, the handsome detective in charge of the case won’t quit asking questions or drop the icy professionalism whenever Chris counters with her own.

Det. Watson can’t let this one slide – sabbatical or not, she won’t let her friend wind up behind bars for a crime she didn’t commit. Equipped with her cop skills, and that thirst for truth, she sets off to solve the murder before it’s too late.

What do you think?  What are you sharing today?


  1. I hadn't heard of this one before, but just ran across someone reading it in a Goodreads group. I'm intrigued. Sounds like it could be fun.

  2. Ok yes, reading this one would definitely make me hungry! But I love a good 'coming home to solve some things once and for all' story, so I hope you enjoy this one! I hope you have a lovely start to the weekend and do drop by my Friday post if you have the time! - Juli @ A Universe in Words

  3. This sounds like a good one, and I'd probably be making a few Mexican Fiesta Burgers while reading it!

  4. That cover makes me hungry! LOL

    I wonder what "over-enthusiasm" she had?

    Sounds good, and here's mine: “SIX WEEKS TO LIVE”

  5. This one looks and sounds like a fun read!! Happy weekend!

  6. Sounds good to me! But maybe I'm just hungry. :)
