A whip smart librarian’s fresh start comes with a tart twist in this perfect cocktail of murder and mystery—with a romance chaser.
MURDER ON TAP
With Chicago winters in the rearview mirror, Chloe Jackson is making good on a promise: help her late friend’s grandmother run the Sea Glass Saloon in the Florida Panhandle. To Chloe’s surprise, feisty Vivi Slidell isn’t the frail retiree Chloe expects. Nor is Emerald Cove. It’s less a sleepy fishing village than a panhandle hotspot overrun with land developers and tourists. But it’s a Sea Glass regular who’s mysteriously crossed the cranky Vivi. When their bitter argument comes to a head and he’s found dead behind the bar, guess who’s the number one suspect?
In trying to clear Vivi’s name, Chloe discovers the old woman isn’t the only one in Emerald Cove with secrets. Under the laidback attitude, sparkling white beaches, and small town ways something terrible is brewing. And the sure way a killer can keep those secrets bottled up is to finish off one murder with a double shot: aimed at Chloe and Vivi.

Harris has another hit on her hands! We meet Chloe, a children's librarian from Chicago on leave. Her BFF passed away and she had promised to help his grandma if that ever happened. So to keep that promise she heads to Florida to start working on grandmas bar. This would be easier if Vivi wanted help and she had somewhere to stay. Instead she is sleeping in her car determined to win the old lady over. This gets hard when a regular customer is found murdered and Vivi is the main suspect. Chloe wants to clear her name so she starts asking questions which leads to all sorts of interactions leading to a surprising ending. A well written introduction to life in a seaside town full of eclectic characters. The mystery keeps you guessing while being entertained at the same time. Cozy readers are sure to enjoy this new adventure. I totally loved it so I give it 5/5 stars.
