4/5 KISS Window Displays
On The Back:
Things have been quiet in the coastal town of North Harbor, Maine, since Sarah Grayson and her rescue cat, Elvis, solved their first murder. Sarah is happy running Second Chance, the shop where she sells lovingly refurbished and repurposed items. But then she gets dragged into a controversy over developing the waterfront. Most of the residents—including Sarah—are for it, but there is one holdout—baker Lily Carter.
So when Lily is found murdered in her bakery, it looks like somebody wanted to remove the only obstacle to the development. But Sarah soon discovers that nothing is as simple as it seems. Now, with the help of her cat’s uncanny ability to detect a lie, Sarah is narrowing down the suspects. But can she collar the culprit before the ruthless killer pounces again?
A very good follow-up in what is looking to be a good series, Sofie Ryan did a wonderful job of continuing the consistency of the character’s actions and feelings through this book and the first one.
Sarah was once again a very good character, I loved her shop and the fact that we actually saw her working in it. In some mystery series I’ve read it seems like the MC just abandons their job on a whim to solve a murder, however in this book Sofie works at her job as owner of Second Chance. The Angels were again really fun. I’ve come to the conclusion that I really like older sleuths because they just come out and say what they mean, they don’s mince their words. Mr. P, Charlotte, Liz, and Rose all are wonderful examples of that.
I like Nick, but yet I like Mac better, both character are strong and can stand on their own, however it seems like the author is setting up for a love triangle in future books. Let’s hope not.
The mystery was very good, I didn’t guess the killer until Sarah did.
Really a good book, there were a couple of editing errors that I noticed and the author seems to be setting up for a love triangle, but overall a solid 4 star read!
