First, let me explain that cozies are not my reads of choice. I found the characters in this one quite different. Tricia, who owns a mystery bookstore and tells the story, is one-dimensional to me. However, her sister, Angelica, has enough personality to make up for her. The mystery is simple. Angelica wins a free night in a bed and breakfast establishment that will open in a week. She invites Tricia to join her and, of course, Tricia finds a body, that of Pippa, one of the managers when she takes Angelica's dog for a walk. So the story begins. The local law enforcement investigate all who were to spent the night in the bed and breakfast. Which guest committed the murder and why? As usual, the law enforcement bumbles about, while Tricia does her own sleuthing and discovers the murderer. If you are one who follows this series you may enjoy it. As for me, I cannot recommend it as it is far too predictable.
