The food truck craze has reached the charming coastal town of South Cove, California, but before Jill Gardner—owner of Coffee, Books, and More—can sample the eats, she has to shift gears and put the brakes on a killer . . .
Now that Kacey Austin has got her new gluten-free dessert truck up and running, there’s no curbing her enthusiasm—not even when someone vandalizes the vehicle and steals her recipes. But when Kacey turns up dead on the beach and Jill’s best friend Sadie becomes the prime suspect, Jill needs to step on it to serve the real killer some just desserts. (Goodreads)
Murder On Wheels is the sixth book in the Tourist Trap Mystery series, and it is every bit as good as the first five.
The characters are well developed, well rounded and three dimensional. Jill is a hard working independent woman who has worked hard to make her dreams come true. Her business, Coffee, Books and More is doing well. She adores her employees, her aunt her best friend and her boyfriend. Things could not be going any better, until a new acquaintance turns up dead. Then her life takes a downward turn and she has to struggle to right it again.
The writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy read. The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and she has created the small town setting perfectly. While reading I felt like I was right there, watching all the activities happening around me. I could not help but enjoy myself while I visited.
The mystery was well plotted and kept me guessing throughout the book. There were enough suspects and twists and turns to keep me guessing. I did not figure out the murderer until it was revealed at the end of the book.
I would recommend this book and series to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery. I have read all six books in this series and I am definitely a fan. I am already looking forward to the next installment.
I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I would like to thank NetGalley and Kensington Books for the opportunity to read and review this book.
