Will it be an invitation to murder?

Lucille is invited by Mayor Terrance Bradley to a special charity ball – Chadsworth’s largest annual fund-raising event. Her Shih Tzu, Vanilla, will be there too.

Rubbing shoulders with the town’s elite, Lucille is convinced that the night has been a raging success…until the mayor’s new assistant and organizer of the esteemed event, Simone Keiser, faints right there at the dinner table. When paramedics arrive, to everyone’s horror, the woman is pronounced DEAD at the scene.

With shocking gossip relentlessly creeping its way through the grapevine, Lucille digs deeper into Simone’s death and is stunned by what she uncovers.

Did Simone Keiser really die of natural causes?
Or was she murdered at the gala ball?

Della told Jim she needed a fence for her garden.
It seemed like an innocent enough request.
Until she found him lying dead next to the partially built fence.

Della’s carefully tended garden was being ravished by the local animal population, which was why she desperately needed the fence. When she hired her friend Jim to do it, the last thing she expected was to have to investigate who killed him. The other murders she’d helped solve were strangers, not one of her best friends, and it was very hard for her to stay objective about this murder.

She had plenty of possible suspects to investigate including Jim’s soon-to-be ex-wife and her new love. And then there was a jealous client of Jim’s who accused him of being a little too friendly with his wife. Not to mention the shady bald-headed man with the goatee and a skull displayed on his jacket.

The coroner’s report determined that Jim died from strychnine poisoning, which was almost impossible to buy. But when someone is determined to commit murder, they find a way, such as breaking into an exterminator’s truck and stealing it.

When strange things start happening in Della’s yard, her big St. Bernard, Moose, isn’t the only one worried about her safety. Sheriff Jared, who shares an on-again off-again budding romance with Della, makes it his personal mission to protect her, but takes a dim view of her helping him investigate Jim’s murder.

Della has become an excellent amateur sleuth when it comes to murder investigations, but when she learns that the FBI has become interested in the hit-and-run death of her husband over a year ago, she’s not sure if that is a mystery she can solve.

Plenty of twists and turns in this cozy mystery written by a USA Today Bestselling Author, and one that will keep you guessing who did it from the beginning to the end!

But when a brewing storm of real estate treachery ends with the cold-blooded murder of a local agent, Roxy finds herself in the thick of a frothy whodunit that’s anything but decaffeinated.

The victim, a hotshot real estate agent, had been spearheading a massive development project that went sour after an intrepid environmentalist unearthed a reason for the town to put the kibosh on the plan. Now, with the town’s picturesque charm drawing tourists in droves, Roxy must grind through a list of suspects as long as a coffee bean’s journey from farm to cup.

From double-shot deceptions to espresso intrigues, Roxy’s quest to unmask the Cappuccino Criminal will plunge her deep into the dark heart of Honey Springs’ seedy underbelly. As she sifts through a muddy mixture of secrets, lies, and steamed milk, Roxy will have to rely on her wit, intuition, and the help of her loyal friends to solve the mystery before it boils over and scalds them all.

In this steamy, cozy mystery with a frothy blend of suspense and humor, the stakes have never been higher—or the coffee stronger. It’s time for Roxy Bloom to pull the perfect shot and catch the Cappuccino Criminal before their next bitter brew leaves someone else in the grinder. So, curl up with a cup of your favorite beverage, and join Roxy in this un-put-downable tale of murder, mystery, and macchiatos.
