Description:

A visit to the serene coastal town of South Cove, California, could make anybody feel refreshed and inspired. But as Jill Gardner—owner of Coffee, Books, and More—discovers, some folks won’t live to tell about it . . .

Mystery author Nathan Pike checked into South Cove Bed & Breakfast to compose a compelling novel, not commit murder. But things get real when a rival B&B owner ends up exactly like the victim in his draft—undeniably dead. As Nathan prepares to complete his magnum opus behind bars, Jill’s the only one who can prove his innocence and deconstruct the plot of a twisted killer!

My Thoughts: 

This book starts with mystery author arriving in South Cove, California to write a novel and is welcomed by the town but doesn't seem to like mingling.  Unless it involves following around with Jill's boyfriend Greg and driving him nuts.  Of course that doesn't stop a murder from happening. When a owner of a local Bed and Breakfast winds up dead.  Who killed him and why?

Add this to Esmeralda looking for a child whose gone missing who everyone else assumes is dead but Jill's neighbor is adamant that the child is alive.  We also learn of changes happening in someone's life which is a surprise to say the least.  What will Jill and her staff do with the latest change?

I love this series it's such fun going back to South Cove and see what everyone is up to.  This book didn't disappoint Jill Gardner is working and going to college for another degree and is working with mystery author Nathan Pike to have him visit her store.  When a local bed and breakfast owner winds up dead everyone is curious to the murdered man and why someone would want to kill him.  It was a real ride to go on as various things were happening in this book.  I love the people of South Cove and seeing how the ride ends!  This is a book that won't disappoint and leads me to wonder where Ms. Cahoon will go from here!
