Coffeehouse manager and reluctant sleuth Juliet Langley returns in a gripping novel from the bestselling author of Death Before Decaf and Mug Shot. Just as things are perking up in Nashville, a serial killer sends tensions foaming over.

Juliet's personal and professional lives have recently received an extra jolt of energy. Her romance with the hunky detective Ryder Hamilton continues to simmer, and business at Java Jive has never been better. But her good mood quickly turns as stale as day-old espresso when she finds out that Ryder has been promoted to his precinct's homicide division. With him risking his life to catch the worst kind of criminals, Juliet's growing sense of unease ignites when a local college student goes missing.

Suddenly every Nashville resident is on high alert, especially Juliet's neighbor Chelsea. Juliet does her best to calm the girl's nerves, but her worst fears are confirmed when she finds Chelsea dead. Even though she tries her best to stay out of it, Juliet's involvement puts a strain on Ryder's first homicide case. The situation soon becomes even more personal for Juliet and her best friend Pete Bennett when one of their employees disappears during her shift. As a killer lurks in the shadows, Juliet, Pete, and Ryder seek out a double shot of justice.             

My Thoughts:

This book follows Juliet Langley who seems to have a knack for finding dead bodies.  In this one there is a serial killer on the loose and the women in town fear for their safety when Juliet brings a scarf to Chelsea she finds her dead and with her boyfriend one of cops in charge of finding out what happens it causes Juliet to worry about Ryder's safety. I heat gets put on when an employee of Pete's goes missing during her shift!

This book was full of adventure some humorous situations kind of a scratch your head that they don't get caught butting in.  As the book pulls you in your really find you want to catch the killer as much as everyone else.  Can't wait to see what is next in this series!
