•Series: (Book #2 in the Cara Mia Delgatto Mystery Series)
•Cozy Mystery 200 pages
Cara Mia Delgatto’s cup runneth over with worries. Her ex-husband is refusing to pay their son’s college tuition, her evil sister is pulling mean pranks, and her old boyfriend has broken her heart. And that’s just the personal stuff. She’s also concerned about keeping the cash register ringing at The Treasure Chest, her retail store specializing in upcycled, recycled, and repurposed décor items with a coastal theme. The media event that Cara plans turns nasty when reporter Kathy Simmons threatens to share unsavory details from the shopkeeper’s past. Things get really dicey when Kathy mysteriously disappears. Cara’s other problems seem trivial in comparison to…a murder investigation!
National Bestselling and Award-Winning Author Joanna Campbell Slan has penned 26 books, including the popular Kiki Lowenstein Mystery Series (Agatha Award Finalist). Her new series featuring Cara Mia Delgatto is a spin off from those books. Joanna writes about spunky women who get by with a little help from their friends. A crafting junkie, Joanna lives on a nearly deserted island in Florida with her dog, Jax, who is making a career out of stealing women’s lingerie.

My review: Kicked to the Curb By Joanna Campbell Slan
The craft and reusing items of the story get a 5 stars. Very creative. I would love to have that talent.
I liked the mystery part of the story but I figured out where it was going and why really early in the story. There was part of the mystery that I did not figure out right about though.
Cara Mia Delgatto at first seemed like a weak character to me, but then she got a scolding and pulled herself up and started to change. Cara loved somebody who to me did not deserved her. I like the guys who want to date her now.
She works with some talented ladies in her business. I wanted to see what they made.
Cara had a big fight with one of the reporters from her media blitz day. Then Kathy went missing from that night and later found dead. Cara became a suspect.
I like the drama, the characters, the romance angle I wanted to talk some sense in a few of the characters at times. Though I do not know who I want Cara to fall for only who I don't want to see her with. I also liked that it was a clean entertaining story.
I want to read more books from Joanna Campbell Slan in the future.
I was given this ebook to read for the purpose of reviewing and being part of Kicked to the Curb blog tour.
