The first book in a delightful new beachside cozy mystery series!

Trouble is brewing in Everly’s new caf’. Can she bag the culprit?

Life hasn’t been so sweet for Everly Swan over the past couple of years, but now that she is back in her seaside hometown and the proud owner of a little iced tea shop and caf’ right on the beach, things are finally starting to look up–until a curmudgeonly customer turns up dead on the boardwalk. With one of her hallmark glass tea jars lying right next to him and an autopsy that reports poison in his system, it doesn’t look good for Everly or her brand new business.

As the townspeople of Charm, formerly so welcoming and homey, turn their back on Everly, she fights to dig up clues about who could have had it in for the former town councilman. With a maddeningly handsome detective discouraging her from uncovering leads and a series of anonymous attacks on Everly and her business, it will take everything she’s got to keep this mystery from boiling over.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this book, it’s a perfect beachside/poolside read for summer. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys cozy crimes/cozy mysteries or anyone in general who is looking for a light-hearted read with quick-witted small town seaside charm.

The author, Bree Baker, wrote with a sincere tone and fresh enthusiasm as the protagonist developed into an endearing character who sorted through a series of ill-fated mishaps and self-inflicted predicaments which were paired with self-discovery. The storyline was well-balanced from this perspective. It unfolded at a pleasant pace which maintained my engagement and had enough backstories at appropriate intervals that weren’t over explained. I liked how it wasn’t saturated with romance and chit-chat. And of course, I loved the recipes that were included inside.

Question: I’m relatively less familiar with these types of genres, can anyone tell me what’s up with the recurring theme of cats and cowboys?
