For Florida diner owner Gia Morelli, there’s no such thing as too much breakfast—unless it kills you . . .When Gia Morelli’s marriage falls apart, she knows it’s time to get out of New York. Her husband was a scam artist who swindled half the millionaires in town, and she doesn’t want to be there when they decide to take revenge. On the spur of the moment, she follows her best friend to a small town in Central Florida, where she braves snakes, bears, and giant spiders to open a cheery little diner called the All-Day Breakfast Café. Owning a restaurant has been her lifelong dream, but it turns into a nightmare the morning she opens her dumpster and finds her ex-husband crammed inside. As the suspect du jour, Gia will have to scramble fast to prove her innocence before a killer orders another cup of murder . . .

REVIEW*I received a free copy of this book from Netgalley which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.
Incredible start to a brand new series that now has me hooked moaning the fact that I have to wait for the next one. Meet Gia as she moves to Florida, where her best friend lives, to escape the chaos of her life in New York after her ex-husband is convicted of financial illegal activities. She is hoping that she left that all behind as she opens her new cafe. On opening day she finds the ex dead in her dumpster and despite the fact that she may be the only person to not wish him dead she of course is the main suspect. What follows is a fascinating story with lots of twists that drew me further and further into the story with lots of heartwarming moments to balance the murders. I especially love the puppy named after Thor from the movie (which is my favorite of the superhero movies) as he is just too cute for words. I like how this story has a different set up from the other cozies I read and The quirks in Gia are a hoot. The hint of romance was sweet plus it was nice to have a supportive detective instead of one convinced of their guilt. If you enjoy very well written culinary cozy mysteries you really have to read this one at it will just make your day. I absolutely loved it so I give it 5/5 stars.
