Spoonful Of Murder

A Killer Coffee Mystery  Book #10

5 Stars


Welcome to the Bean Hive Coffeehouse where the coffee and gossip are HOT!

Sure, Honey Springs, Kentucky is a destination for summer time visitors but our annual Christmas Festival, which includes a PAW-rade (mmhmmm for furry friends) is giving the summer tourist season a run for its money quickly becoming a tourist favorite!

Aunt Maxi is hosting a progressive supper for the community to raise funds for Pet Palace, our local SPCA. You’d think it would be GREAT for the tourists and it is but when Aunt Maxi literally has a hissy fit with a tail on it after she finds out Loretta Bebe’s involvement…things turn south.

A dead body appears during the appetizers, Aunt Maxi and Loretta are suspects, and it’s all she wrote from there.

Lordy bee…let’s hope this thing’s wrapped up in a nice little package with a bow on top so Santa doesn’t have to make a stop at the local jail!  (Amazon)


The characters are well rounded and well developed.  All of the usual characters are in this book and I felt like I was visiting with old friends.  I love their Southern charms and the way they all stick together.  And when a body is found and Aunt Maxi is a person of interest, they will all have to work together to find the real killer.

The writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy read.  The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and she knows how to make the reader believe in all of the Southern goodness and quirkiness.  The mystery was well plotted and there were enough clues to sift through and suspects to consider.  I was surprised at who the culprit was.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery.  Grab this book and enjoy the read.

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book and provided my honest review.
