If you follow me for a moment you know that i really enjoy Tonya Kappes writings and i'm fond of several of her books. Last week, the second book in one of her series was released but unfortunately for me i still didn't read book 1 so i was behind and since i love to read in order i had to start with book 1 "Scene of the Grind" however it took me a moment to read it as we had temperature well above the normal for here and i was simply in no shape to read or do anything but i fully plan to make up for that by getting up to date in this series before the end of the week^^.
So here is my opinion on Scene of the Grind, first book in the Killer Coffee Mystery series... probably my least favourite book from this author at this point but still one i loved a lot simply not my top choice^^
Publisher: Krew Publisher
Genre: cozy mystery, southern mysterySource: eArc
It took a moment for me to get really into the story as the beginning is a bit slow while we learn about Roxy, her coffeehouse and Lakefront town but once the mystery starts we do follow Roxy with a lot of pleasure. Her romance was a bit quick but it does feel right and it's hard to resist Pepper.
I guess i just would have wanted to see more of Pepper somehow but we will hear more of him ( and of Sassy i hope) so perhaps i will love next book even more than this one.
The plot is well done, it was fun to discover some of the people living in the town , Bunny is really helpful and a bit like a sunshine even extra early, aunt Maxi must have a lot of secret and so many more to discover.
It's a good cozy mystery and i will be happy to continue the series. A bonus is the several recipes found in the book some i can't wait to try, i think that was a genius idea and so fitting the series and Roxy's passion.
