Description:

Evie Bloomfield puts the pedal to the metal—in the latest Cycle Path mystery from the national bestselling author of Geared for the Grave.

Moving from Los Angeles to small, picturesque Mackinac Island to work in a bike shop might seem crazy, but Evie knows it’s the best decision she’s ever made. That’s not to say she’s gotten rid of all her stress; after all, the upcoming Lilac Festival has everyone in town riding in circles.

But things really go downhill when a ferry full of tourists—including Evie’s friend Fiona’s former boss, the editor of a sleazy rag in LA—arrives on the island. No one knows why Peephole Perry came all the way to Mackinac, but things aren’t looking good for Fiona when Peep is found dead. Now Evie has to gear up and get a grip on the truth if she wants to clear her friend’s name...

My Thoughts:

Evie and Nate Sutter are getting ready for the wedding between Nate's mom and Evie's partner at the bike shop.  While going to pickup Nate's moms wedding dress she meets up with Fiona and meets the ferry landing on the island Fiona gets upset when she sees Perry someone Fiona use to know back in her days of living in California and what Evie can tell not in a good way.  Doesn't take long before Perry winds up dead in the bushes of the grand hotel and Evie  finds herself knee deep in oil and a dead body.  What does Perry have that he's holding over Fiona?  More importantly is it true?

As with every Duffy Brown book she has a way of weaving humor into her mystery and this one doesn't disappoint I found myself laughing out loud more than once so much I shared the funny parts with my husband.  I love her ability to weave other aspects into a mystery.  Was so worth reading this series I loved it!
