Book Description

In the California coastal town of South Cove, history is one of its many tourist attractions—until it becomes deadly…

Jill Gardner, proprietor of Coffee, Books, and More, has discovered that the old stone wall on her property might be a centuries-old mission worthy of being declared a landmark. But Craig Thomas, the obnoxious owner of South Cove’s most popular tourist spot, The Castle, makes it his business to contest her claim. When Thomas is found murdered at The Castle shortly after a heated argument with Jill, even her detective boyfriend has to ask her for an alibi. Jill decides she must find the real murderer to clear her name. But when the killer comes for her, she’ll need to jump from historic preservation to self-preservation …

About the Author

My Review

New to me author Lyn Cahoon,  is the author of the Tourist Trap Mystery series. Mission to Murder is the second in the series.  

I really enjoyed this cozy mystery set in a small tourist town on the central California coast. I'm still trying to figure out if it is based on Cambria or San Simeon or a mixture of both. Jill Gardner owns a small coffee bookstore in town. Her boyfriend is the local police detective. She is still trying to find her place in the small town. The manager of the town's biggest tourist attraction is murdered right after Jilly argued with him. So of course she is the first suspect. Jill tries to solve the mystery herself to her boyfriend's chagrin. Good story in a cozy full of interesting characters.  I recommend this book if you are looking for a light read.

Mission to Murder will be released on July 31st.
