In the gentle coastal town of South Cove, California, all Jill Gardner wants is to keep her store-Coffee, Books, and More-open and running. So why is she caught up in the business of murder?When Jill's elderly friend Miss Emily calls in a fit of pique, she already knows that the city council is trying to force Emily to sell her dilapidated old house. But Emily's gumption goes for naught when she dies unexpectedly and leaves the house to Jill, along with all of her problems . . . and her enemies. Convinced that her friend was murdered, Jill is finding the list of suspects longer than the list of repairs needed on the house.

Jill owns and runs a combination bookstore and coffeeshop, but as a former lawyer, her elderly friend often calls on her for help, especially when she has issues with the city government. Her property ownership and her home are being threatened by some people who want to tear it down for a development. Jill is willing to straighten it all out for Miss Emily, but before she can, Miss Emily dies. And Jill is in for a big surprise. There is plenty happening in this tale to keep readers engaged in the story. More than one crime and more than one criminal, but only one solution. And can Jill - and the police detective she’s crushing on - figure it out before Jill becomes another victim? Good writing, great characters, and an intriguing plot combine for an entertaining mystery. ( )

Found this cozy series as an Amazon Kindle deal and decided to give it a try. Sometimes you find a lovely surprise in these discounted reads, and such was the case with Guidebook to Murder by Lynn Cahoon. The story centers around Jill Gardner, a local coffee shop owner in a small California town. When her elderly friend, Miss Emily, is found murdered, all clues point to the town council and their plans to force her to sell her house for a new development. With the help of Detective Greg King, Jill works to solve the case.

The mystery was enjoyable and the clues cleverly planted. The setting and characters had a wonderful small town feel without being overly cliche, which is a personal pet peeve of mine. Overall, this was a fantastic start to a new series that I look forward to reading more of. ( )

Jill Gardner, bookstore owner, receives a call from her elderly friend Emily that the city council is trying to force her to sell her dilapidated old house. Jill drops by later to see if she can help Emily but instead finds her dead. Emily left the house to Jill and the list of repairs is long and there is a time limit issued by the city council. Jill, therefore, asks her aunt to come from San Francisco to help run her bookstore/coffee shop.

Jill is convinced that Emily was murdered but she is finding the list of suspects longer than the list of repairs but she is determined to kind the killer. She is helped the “delish” Detective Greg King.

A cozy mystery with a romantic slice. I enjoyed the plot and the story. ( )
