BOOK SEVEN in the bestselling BARKS & BEANS CAFE cozy mystery series!! 

Welcome to the Barks & Beans Cafe, a quaint place where folks pet shelter dogs while enjoying a cup of java...and where murder sometimes pays a visit. 

After much cajoling, Macy gives in to her neighbor, Vera, and agrees to come to her book club's Christmas party so she can share about the cafe. While public speaking isn't Macy's thing, she wants to brighten Vera's lonely holiday season...and she can sell a little house blend on the side. 

When a lively book discussion spirals into a public roast of the mayor—who happens to be sitting in their midst—things get uncomfortable. Soon afterward, the mayor shows up dead in Vera's bathroom, and no amount of gingerbread cookies or eggnog can restore Vera to the club's good graces. 'Tis the season for Macy to find the murderer, or else Vera might be taking a long winter's nap in a jail cell.

Join siblings Macy and Bo Hatfield as they sniff out crimes in their hometown...with plenty of dogs along for the ride! The Barks & Beans Cafe cozy mystery series features a small town, an amateur sleuth, and no swearing or graphic scenes.

The Barks & Beans Cafe cozy mystery series in order: Book 1: No Filter Book 2: Iced Over Book 3: Fair Trade Book 4: Spilled Milk Book 5: Trouble Brewing Book 6: Cold Drip Book 7: Roast Date
*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.
Another fun adventure with Macy and her brother Bo. This time Macy gives in to giving a talk at a local book club. Though reluctant the talk goes over well until the mayor is found dead in the bathroom. This just happens to be at her friend Vera's house making her the prime suspect. Even though Macy is busy she starts looking into things in an effort to clear Vera's name. Makes for fun read with a great mix of adorable fur babies and clues peppered throughout. A great choice for animal fans and cozy lovers. I really liked it so I give it 4/5 stars.
