It's that simple.

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

I'm hoping to read this one soon.  I really enjoyed the first book and I do enjoy hamburgers 😁

First Chapter

Bang, bang, bang!

A hammer clacked against the walls downstairs, knocking in nails and destroying my sleep in three fell blows.

From 56% on my e-reader...

"And isn't it true that we're not even supposed to be asking questions and the fact that we are is, in itself, pretty inappropriate?"

Synopsis from Goodreads:

A poisoning, a mystery, and a murderer on the loose...

Suspended detective Christie Watson has decided not to get involved in any more murder cases. If the Captain back in Boston finds out she's been investigating, she's fired! 
But when a local artist is poisoned, and Christie's best friend's cousin is accused, she realizes that she can't stay out of this case. Especially when their might be a murderer watching her every move. 
Can she solve the case before she becomes the next victim?

  1. That's a terrible way to wake up, but it is an interesting way to start a story. It seems like a good mystery. Have a great weekend!

  2. This does sound fun. I think I have the first sitting somewhere on my Kindle app. I just need to figure out when I can actually get it read.

  3. The cover made me hungry for a burger at 9 in the morning... LOL.... sounds like a fun read, for sure! Happy weekend!

  4. Not sure how a hamburger relates to a murder, but that cover hamburger does look good. Enjoy.

  5. That looks good and now I want a burger. :)

  6. What a cover! LOL That's a great title too. :-) This sounds like fun and I hope you enjoy it, Yvonne!

  7. I love that 56! And that sounds like a really dreadful to wake up!

  8. Whoa...that is quite the book cover! I haven't had a burger in years, but now I want one. :D
