From author Lena Gregory comes a delicious new series that will warm your heart and leave you guessing until the very end...
When twenty-five-year-old Danika Delaney, black sheep of the Delaney clan, returns home to Long Island to take over Jimmie's, her eccentric uncle’s old fashioned malt shop on eastern Long Island, she’s not exactly thrilled. But things start to look up when her uncle tells her she can do whatever she’d like with the shop, and it seems she might realize her dream of a small trendy café. That is, until she discovers the body of her ex-boyfriend’s estranged wife in a melted puddle of rocky road in the malt shop basement. With her two sidekicks, her sister and a good childhood friend, in tow, Dani searches for–or stumbles upon—one clue after another. But as she narrows down the suspect list, she realizes if she’s not careful she may end up in a puddle of her own...
One of my favorite authors has done it again!
Lena Gregory has dished up a winner with Murder A La Mode. A cleverly crafted mystery, delightful characters, and a fun small town with the infamous busybodies.
The murder mystery was well-developed and the author provided a large number of potential suspects, including our own budding amateur sleuth, and main protagonist, Danika Delaney. There are so many twists and turns, every time I thought I had a bead on who did it, the arc shifted and we were chasing down someone else.
I loved every single page of this book from the characters, the setting, the mystery, and the author's writing style. I found myself totally immersed in every facet of Murder A La Mode. The pacing was perfect and once I started the book, I just couldn't put it down.
I was provided a copy of this book.
