I enjoyed this book and love seeing what Presley will uncover next. It was great to see her and Cooper work together to get to the bottom of things. Ms. Turner writes a fabulous cozy mystery series. With just the right amount of action, adventure and romance. I can see her writing for many years to come, she definitely has alot to share with her storytelling!
