Harper Lin is a USA TODAY Bestselling Author of cozy mysteries. When she’s not reading or writing mysteries, she loves going to yoga classes, hiking, and hanging out with her family and friends.

I have been reading a lot of cozy mystery books and this is one of the books. The story begins with Francesca, who moves back to her hometown in Cape Bay from New York after her mother had passed away. She owns a family chain cafe in Cape Bay and keeps herself busy most of the time. And one day, when she was on her way home, she sees Mr. Cordozi, slumped on his chair, dead. And then begins her investigation.

So let’s start with the ones I like about the book.

  • I like the book cover of the book.
  • Towards the end, the book got interesting as both Fran and her childhood friend Matt set about to find Mr. Cordozi’s killer.

Things I didn’t like

  • I felt many parts of the story was not really related to the story–a lot of unnecessary parts

Overall this is an OK book. Give three star rating
