Hello all! Just finished a cozy mystery novel, Cream Puff Murder by Sandi Scott. Here’s my review
Ashley Adams is settling back into her life in Seagrass, TX after leaving a broken heart and criminal ex-boyfriend in Paris, France. Her French sweets catering company has finally landed a major job, making Ashley grateful for all that is going right – her business, her work partnership, and reconnecting with an old friend Ryan.
All that changes when Ashley overhears one of the guests arguing with a strange man in the bathroom. Things get worse when the woman is found dead the next day, poisoned by one of Ashley’s cream puffs.
Ashley must solve the mystery to save the reputation of her nascent business. She is thrust into the lives of people from her past who all have something to hide. Is the murderer a jealous lover? An out-of-towner with business interests? A local hero turned criminal? Teaming up with her old friend Ryan and her loyal dog Dizzy, Ashley sets out to solve the crime.
Will she be able to solve the murder before her business reputation is completely ruined?

About Sandi Scott
I am a cozy mystery reader and writer who is finally living my dream of being able to write what I love. I fell in love with mystery books when I first started reading Agatha Christie eons ago. Join my email list at http://www.SandiScottBooks.com (courtesy of Amazon)
This book I got for free from Amazon Kindle. The first book of the Seagrass Mystery series. In a nutshell, Ashley Adams overhears a man arguing with a woman in the bathroom at an event, where she was providing her signature cream puff as desserts. Then that woman was found dead in the bathroom after eating one of her signature cream puffs. And because of this event, in order to save her business, Ashley sets out to find who killed that woman.
So I will list out my thoughts.
- There were only sixteen chapters in the book so it is good for a quick read.
- I felt I got confused in some parts and so the writing was a bit confusing sometimes but it was good.
- Some parts of the book was boring though towards the end, it got interesting.
- Many of the characters here are likable.
Not much to review on this book, but I think it was an OK book. Worth three stars!
