Mistletoe Cake Murder (All-Day Breakfast Cafe Mystery)
by Lena Gregory

The story moves at a good pace, with tension, twists, and turns. The characters are wonderful, with a few exceptions, and the mystery unfolds to a logical conclusion . . .
~Christa Reads and Writes

I’m so excited to be a stop on the blog tour for author Lena Gregory and her new book Mistletoe Cake Murder. It is the sixth book in her All-Day Breakfast Cafe Cozy Murder Mystery. I enjoy reading about all the characters and the trouble they get into.

Tis the season for celebrating when Gia Morelli’s holidays include both a wedding and yuletide festivities. Until someone naughty delivers a most unwanted Christmas gift—murder. . .

 

For a native New Yorker, palm trees and warm temperatures don’t equal winter, much less Christmastime. Nevertheless, Gia Morelli’s friends have decked the halls and trimmed the trees to truly welcome her into their “family” with an old-fashioned Boggy Creek, Florida holiday season. Even more joyous, Savannah Mills is getting married on Christmas Eve—the greatest gift Gia could ever wish for her best friend.

 

But when Gia and Savannah stop by the caterer for a final tasting a week before the wedding, they overhear another bride arguing with her son about her husband-to-be. Moments later, the woman is sampling a piece of wedding cake—gorgeously decorated with mistletoe frosting—then suddenly dies.

 

Now Gia’s caterer friends are the prime suspects in what appears to be murder by poisoning. To clear their names and ensure Savannah has a merry matrimony will require Gia to conjure up a Christmas miracle . . .

 

Includes recipes from the All-Day Breakfast Café!

The characters are well developed and well rounded.  Gia and Savanna are the best of friends, as close as sisters.  I really enjoy spending time with them, they are so much fun.  They are getting ready for Savannah’s wedding and all that entails.  When they go by the caterer for a final tasting, another bride is killed.  When Savannah’s caterer is considered a prime suspect, they decide they will have to find the killer themselves.  And they better do it quickly, Savannah has a wedding.

The writing style flows smoothly and defines the characters very clearly by their actions and words.  The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and it pulled me onto the story from the very beginning.  The mystery was well plotted and not easily solved.  There were enough clues to sift through and suspects to consider and I was entirely sure who the culprit was until it was revealed  at the end.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery.  I am already looking forward to reading the next one in the series

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book provided by the publisher, Kensington Books, and NetGalley, which I greatly appreciate.

Lena grew up in a small town on the south shore of eastern Long Island, but she recently traded in cold, damp, gray winters for the warmth and sunshine of central Florida, where she now lives with her husband, three kids, son-in-law, and four dogs. Her hobbies include spending time with family, reading, and walking. Her love for writing developed when her youngest son was born and didn’t sleep through the night. She works full-time as a writer and a freelance editor and is a member of Sisters in Crime.
