The kettle’s about to boil over . . .
The quaint coastal town of South Cove, California, is all abuzz about the opening of a new specialty shop, Tea Hee. But as Coffee, Books, and More owner Jill Gardner is about to find out, there’s nothing cozy about murder . . .
Shop owner Kathi Corbin says she came to South Cove to get away from her estranged family. But is she telling the truth? And did a sinister someone from her past follow her to South Cove? When a woman claiming to be Kathi’s sister starts making waves and a dead body is found in a local motel, Jill must step in to clear Kathi’s name—without getting herself in hot water.

Praise for The Tourist Trap Mysteries

“Lynn Cahoon has created an absorbing, good fun mystery in Mission to Murder.”—Fresh Fiction
What I thought of this book.
This is one of my favorite series and I love going back to South Cove and visiting with Jill, Greg, Aunt Jackie and the others.
Jill is the owner of Coffee, Books and More and also runs the business to business meetings. There is a new business coming to town called Tea Hee and and there is something interesting about the new owner Kathy.
Jill tries her best to stay out of her boyfriends cases but she can’t help it if she likes to make list and try and figure things out. At first she stays out of the latest murder because she is to busy with the festival in town and her new food truck.
Then she finds out he was related to Kathy and Ivy’s sister comes to town and she is very strange and suddenly Jill is in the mist of everything as she tries to figure out what everything has to do with Kathy.
Lynn Cahoon has made another fun mystery with my favorite gang. I also like all the subplots that involve those that by book seven we are well invested in. Aunt Jackie has a new boyfriend, Jill and Amy’s friendship seems to be on the mend (thank goodness), Toby is dating someone new and a lot more.
Jill is a great character and has her flaws and she has a very understanding boyfriend Greg though I was hoping by now they would have taken a step more into their relationship. I know Jill is thinking about wanting too. There is a bit of tension in this book between them he finds out she is sleuthing on his case, though he knows she can’t help herself. He just wants to keep her safe. They are one of my favorite cozy mystery couples.
I would recommend this series to any cozy mystery lover!
