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.

What I thought of this book.
I really love this series, this was the series that got me really going on cozy mysteries when I asked to review the first one on audio, after that I have been a bit hooked on cozies as you can see…lol.
In the previous book Jill and her Aunt Jackie tried to buy a food truck but was out manned by Dustin Austin. He wanted the truck for his wife. Jill was not fond of Dustin because he had an affair her friend Sadie, then went back to his wife.
Kacey was going to use the food truck to sell glutten free desserts which could rival Sadie and her desserts, plus take money from Jill as she sold those desserts. So when Kacey is found dead there is a lot of suspicion surrounding her friend Sadie but Jill knows she couldn’t do it nor could her son who is off at college.
Greg wants Jill to stay out of things but she can’t help it if she just naturally figures things out and has a curious mind. She does keep telling herself that she is going to stay out of things but she just falls into things. I enjoyed the mystery and trying to figure out who the killer was.
Jill is one of my favorite cozy mystery sleuths as I love how she just has this knack for figuring things out. She loves making list and I think it helps her put things in order so that she figures things out. Though a lot of times she figures it out a bit to late and gets herself into trouble. I like her relationship with Greg and how it has evolved since the first book.
I love some of the secondary characters like her Aunt Jackie and Sadie, it’s these fun characters that really make a cozy fun. 🙂
If you like cozy mysteries then you really need to try this series and it’s one of my favorites. 🙂
Susan Boyce has become one of my favorite narrators. She does a great job with this series and makes listening to it enjoyable.
