FIRST IN A NEW SERIES!
In need of a change, Jenna Hart leaves the high-pressure world of advertising to help her aunt, Vera, open a culinary bookshop and café. Back with her family in Crystal Cove, California, Jenna seems to have all the right ingredients for a fresh start—until someone adds a dash of murder.
As a marketing expert, Jenna wants to make sure the grand opening of the Cookbook Nook draws a crowd, and no one is better at getting attention than her old college roommate, celebrity chef Desiree Divine. But when Desiree arrives in quiet Crystal Cove to do a cookbook signing, the diva stirs up more trouble than business…especially when she turns up dead.
Known for stealing husbands and burning bridges, Desiree left behind plenty of suspects—including Jenna. Though the celebrity’s life always appeared to be an open book, Jenna will have to read between the lines in order to clear her name, and catch a killer before another body is served cold.
Delightful Cozy Mystery
FINAL SENTENCE is a delightful cozy mystery. The heroine is easy to relate to, and her backstory makes her very sympathetic. Plus, I loved the characterizations of the other players. The author has a wonderful way with words that brings the people and story to life. The mystery itself was interesting and kept me guessing until the final reveal. Overall, I found this book to be a great start to a new series.
