Synopsis from Goodreads: Don’t marry into murder... Catering her childhood friend’s beachfront wedding was a dream come true for Everly Swan—and, with hundreds of guests in attendance, great exposure for her new iced tea shop and café. But when the well-to-do groom is found floating facedown in the surf, the locals of Charm, North Carolina turn their suspicions on his new bride. Could she have been so desperate to lay hands on his fortune that she arranged for his murder even before they set off on their honeymoon? Everly knows her lovestruck friend couldn’t be behind the murder, but with clues pointing in several directions, she can’t decide which wedding guest is the most likely culprit. Meanwhile, the frustratingly handsome Detective Hays has made it clear that Everly should stay out of the investigation altogether. But with a killer on the loose and a feeling that someone is watching her café very closely, Everly knows that if she can’t solve this murder soon, her cake might be iced for good.
My Review: This was a great cozy mystery that had all the pieces that make a great light mystery read: a quaint small town, a cast of quirky characters, and a hunky detective with romance potential. Overall I really enjoyed this book. It was fast paced and well written. The mystery drew me in and though I figured out the murderer fairly early on I still enjoyed the story. I also loved the little details the author included such as the kinds of tea and food Everly was preparing. I hadn’t read the first book in the series but I don’t think it detracted much from my enjoyment of this one at all. I will certainly be looking for this authors next book!
