Val Deniston is catering the debut of Bayport’s newest bookstore—but the death of a customer is about to draw her into a real-life murder mystery …Suzette Cripps has been occupying a spare bedroom at Val’s granddad’s house while she takes classes in this Maryland Eastern Shore town—but she’s always seemed a little secretive and fearful, and any talk about her past is a closed book.After winning the costume contest at the Halloween-themed bookstore party, Suzette is mowed down by a hit-and-run driver—and Val and her grandfather start to wonder whether it was really an accident or if someone was after Suzette. Granddad is a little distracted by his new enterprise as a ghost-buster, but as Val talks to Suzette’s coworkers and fellow creative writing students, she grows more convinced that the dead woman’s demons weren’t imaginary—and that she needs to rip the mask off a killer …Includes delicious five-ingredient recipes!
*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.
Another fantastic addition to this wonderful cozy series! Val is gearing up for Halloween with a catering job with the brand new bookstore. The grand opening is a success including the costume contest. At least until the winner is found dead the next morning and she just happens to be granddads house guest. Well of course she has to start asking questions which leads to hilarious moments with all the main characters and a few strange ones with guests. Add in the recipes and you will find yourself hungry yet satisfied by the end. A must read for culinary cozy fans. I totally loved it so I give it 5/5 stars.
