My review: If the Shoe Kills by Lynn Cahoon (A Tourist Trap Mystery #3)


This is the third book in the Tourist Trap Mystery series. It has the familiar characters and some new ones too. I did not guess who the murder was. It also had some Christmas cheer. Good drama.

The setting is small town on the California coast called South Cove.

Jill Gardner owns Coffee, books, and more. Jill is involved in a lot of things. She dates Detective Greg King. She is always told to stay out of his murder cases.

Ted Hendricks is coming to down to bring some interns to work the Christmas season. He is a real jerk. People want to stay away from him.

Jill is planning a fund raiser to help some low income families to receive some books of their own and it keeps growing. What a good idea to help kids love to read. It made me want to help with it.

I enjoy this series and have now read the first three books of the series and look forward to reading the next one. It is a good clean cozy mystery series.

I was given this ebook to read by Net galley and Kensington Books. In return I agreed to give honest review of If the Shoe Kills.
