Series: A Hayley Powell Food and Cocktails Mystery #4
Format: Nook e-book
Food and cocktails columnist Hayley Powell is not looking for love this Valentine's Day. Of course she also isn't planning on looking for a murderer. . .
Hayley Powell has her mind set on not dating after her boyfriend Lex left town to get work in Vermont which in Hayley's eyes means he's gone for good.
Hayley spends her time writing two columns now that Bruce the crime reporter is on vacation in Mexico. Hayley has also been helping Bessie an overweight temper ridden cat loving woman who is trying to sell chocolates even though she lives life like a hoarder.
Also making a reappearance is Blueberry the pain in rear devil spawn cat from Death of A Coupon clipper. Blueberry needs a home and Randy Hayley's brother is a sucker for lost causes and brings Blueberry to Hayley hoping to house Blueberry there until he can find a family for him. At first Blueberry and Leroy hit it off horribly landing Leroy in the vet hospital where Hayley finds the vet she has known has retired and now there is a new hot dr. in town.
Hayley's daughter is upset about something and Hayley is determined to get to the bottom of it. Which comes in time when Gemma finally comes clean to her mom about what is bothering her. Meanwhile Bessie has wound up dead and everyone is quick to assume it was natural causes but something about Bessie's death has Hayley thinking it's anything but natural causes. The more she digs the more she learns about people in town and Bessie herself.
I love this series it's great and refreshing to keep reading and enjoying these great characters like Liddy and Mona they crack me up with all their antics. It's like visiting old friends and seeing what they are up to now. I am looking forward to their next book in the series when it comes out. I'm such a huge fan of this brother/sister writing team! Keep up the great work!
