From USA TODAY Bestselling Author Harper Lin: a new cozy mystery series set in a charming beach town!
When Francesca’s old high school crush, Todd, is accused of murder, she is convinced he is innocent. The police don’t believe Todd’s story, and neither does Matty.
During the busy summer tourist season at Cape Bay, Francesca sets out to prove Todd’s innocence. Matty, however, investigates to prove Todd is guilty. Why does Matty detest Todd so much? But what if he’s right—what if Todd is a murderer?
Includes two special recipes! This is Book 2 in The Cape Bay Cafe Mysteries. The books don’t have to be read in order.

Also by this author: Cappuccinos, Cupcakes, and a Corpse, Margaritas, Marzipan, and Murder


Here is what I thought

Another cute and quick listen and I am really starting to like these short cozies as they are great for getting a quick read in in between longer reads. 🙂

In book two Francesca learns that she doesn’t know how to make a very good cup of tea as some Brits came in and ordered. She want’s to learn because she knows she can make a great cup of coffee as that was born into her but tea is different. So the lady teaches her the basics and she looks it up and learns how to make good tea. She didn’t know how well it would go over but she is surprised and she even makes iced.

Then she hears that a man has been killed and the guy they think committed the murder was her crush from high school. Matty who Francesca has been getting closer to but hasn’t decided if they are going to be boyfriend/girlfriend yet doesn’t like Todd. He remembers him from High School and didn’t like him then and still hold that against him. It causes some arguments between Francesca and Matty when to believing he is innocent.

While trying to figure out what happened Matty suggested that she make Tiramisu and sell it which gives her the idea to see if a local restaurant would make them and she could sell them and they could split the money. She didn’t realize how well that would go over and it’s a big hit. So between her cafe doing great with the new items and trying to find a killer Francesca is pretty busy.

I have the next one in the series to listen too and I can’t wait to give it a try as I really like the characters and the mysteries for being short are pretty good.

  1. I bet it is nice to have some shorter things to listen to from time to time. I’m going to have to plan some cozies into my August TBR because I haven’t read one in a while and they do break up larger reads. Glad you liked this one.
