Caught Read Handed by Terrie Farley Moran - Review plus a Giveaway

I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review

Published: July 7, 2015
Number of pages: 304
Genre: Cozy mystery
Series: Read Em and Eat Mystery #2

From the national bestselling author of Well Read, Then Dead comes the second mystery featuring Sassy Cabot and Bridgy Mayfield, who bring Fort Myers Beach, Florida, residents plenty of sinful treats and killer reads at their bookstore café, Read ’Em and Eat.

Happy to help her fellow bibliophiles, Sassy visits the local library with book donations for their annual fundraising sale. Unfortunately, the welcoming readers’ haven is in turmoil as an argument erupts between an ornery patron and new staff member, Tanya Lipscombe—also known as “Tanya Trouble.” She may lack people skills, but everyone is shocked when she’s later found murdered in her own hot tub.

The man last seen arguing with Tanya is soon arrested. But Alan Mersky, a veteran with PTSD, happens to be the brother of Sassy’s former boss—and he’s no murderer. Now it’s up to Sassy and Bridgy to clear Alan’s name and make sure the real killer gets booked.

Includes a recipe for Miss Marple scones!

This is a fun series to read. I like that this book takes place in Fort Myers, Florida which is not far from me and a place I have been to. I also like the setting of the bookstore cafe. I wish this was really in Ft. Myers so I could go visit these fun characters. The author does a good job of giving us just enough twists and turns to keep you guessing until the end of the story as to who committed murder. The characters are so fun in this series that you are glad to have a chance to get to know them better. As an added bonus be sure to check out the recipe in the back of the book. I am sure you will want to give it a try. I am looking forward to more books in this series.
