When one of your extremely few customers is found dead only moments after consuming your coffee, and most of the town residents have some sort of relationship with the deceased, chances for business success also appear to drop dead. Throw in a weak love connection with one steamy cop, whose mother happens to be police chief, attempts to give this tepid mystery additional plot twists.

For the first 20 chapters I felt Krissy Hancock got away with unrealistic butting-into strangers' lives as well as overstepping a police investigation. Misfit, her cat, was my favorite character, providing suspense and comic relief.
Near the end of the book the major action begins before an abrupt jolting ending.
I think there are some interesting characters introduced, that need further development.
if Krissy actually knew some people in the community or if her partner Vickie, who has been in town longer, had made some connections and offered to speak to people, the plot might have had more substance.

Alex lives in Ohio with his family and resident felines, who provide endless amounts of inspiration.
