SYNOPSIS

Felicity Koerber is finally getting her life together.  She has a fiancĂ©, her bean to bar chocolate shop on Galveston’s historic Strand has become a gathering spot for the community, and she is ready to embrace whatever the future holds.  She’s ready for another launch party – despite the disaster at her grand opening, when she’d first gotten involved with solving a murder.  And this time she’s embracing her status as a sleuth.  She’s hosting a murder mystery weekend to celebrate the new Mystery Flavor line of craft chocolate bars.  She’s held a contest to choose the attendees, who will all stay at her aunt’s flip hotel and enjoy the island.  It’s all supposed to be perfectly random – only, Felicity starts to uncover connections between her guests.  When one of them winds up murdered, Felicity has to keep her aunt from becoming the main suspect.

The killer is very clearly calling Felicity out, leaving clues that mean little to anyone other than her.  But that doesn’t narrow down the suspect pool.  Her guests are there because they love the true crime podcast she’s been featured on.  And she can’t decide whether the killer wants her to catch them – or just wants to taunt her.

Meanwhile, Felicity is also playing host to her future in-laws and discovers that her fiancĂ©’s sister, who is also a cop, is very competitive.  Can Felicity hold her own and make a good impression, while keeping her business together and her aunt out of jail?  And can Felicity solve it in time to protect the people she cares about from becoming additional victims?   

Satchmo the retired police dog turned therapy dog returns to help her sniff out a few clues, and one of the guests brings along a ferret named Cheeseburger, who keeps showing up in the most unexpected places.

  1. I had fun learning about ferrets for this one. They're such sweet, silly creatures, but there's a lot to consider before getting one as a pet. That's one thing I love to highlight in each book -- Felicity gets to interact with a different creature and learn about what goes into owning one, and to experience the quirky personalities that go with a particular type of pet. Felicity is a little shy about it at first, since she's never handled ferrets, but she soon realizes Cheeseburger is a sweet girl -- even if she does like to collect things that could well be clues.

    1. There really is a lot to consider -- which we didn't know before we got one. Ha! But seriously loved our sweet fella, even if he was a little thief. Always a pleasure to highlight your books, Amber.
