Review: Cherry Cake and A Cadaver


Title: Cherry Cake and a Cadaver
Author: Susan Boyles
Publisher: Argent Ocean Publishing
Series: Lily Gayle Lambert #2
Format: e-book ARC
Source: GEBT

Description:

Lily Gayle and the gang set out to find a killer after local baker Luxen Natolovich is found dead hours before the grand opening weekend at the new Bed and Breakfast in town, Midnight Dragonfly. 

As Lily Gayle deciphers the clues around Luxen's death she uncovers a conspiracy of lies and half truths that could very well be tied to a refugee camp in Mississippi during World War II. 

The deeper Lily Gayle digs the deeper the conspiracy runs and the closer she comes to being the killers next victim.

My Thoughts:

This book is the second in Lily Gayle Lambert and someone has bought the Mitchell place and we know what happened there last time.  This time the Mitchell Place is being turned into a Bed and Breakfast called the Midnight Dragonfly.  Will it succeed or fail is anyone's guess.  Of course Lily can't help trying to peak into the place to see what they are going to do with it which includes dragging her friend Dixie with her.  What she didn't count on was murder being served up.

Lily and the gang are trying to figure out what they know about Luxen the local Baker who seemed to be hiding something.  Of course in this town there are people jumping to talk about Luxen like he was their friend.  Will Lily Gayle figure it out in time or will the killer strike again?  This time she might be the next one on the menu.

I love the town and the people in this series as they unravel the mystery to get to the bottom of a murder even when Lily is getting lectures from her cousin Ben to stay out of things.  Lily can't help her natural curiosity.  This book really pulls you in and makes you really wonder who killed Luxen and why?  Can't wait to see what is next in this series!
