Before the events of the previous Cape Bay Cafe novel there had not been a murder in this idyllic tourist coastal town forever. But here is a second one in the space of a month, this one outside a local gym, with the gym’s buff owner the prime suspect.
But Todd — of course that is his name — was our amateur sleuth Fran’s high school crush, so naturally she is determined to help clear his name, even as Matty, childhood friend and current love interest, is determined to prove his guilt.
Unlike the last one, I definitely figured out the culprit and motive long before Fran in this one, but I still enjoyed watching her figure it out. And I liked how we got so much information about tea in this book, as Fran added it to the cafe’s menu.
I like tea.
