Cranberry Bluff by Deborah Garner (Cozy Mystery Tour

Cranberry Bluff by Deborah Garner
Molly Elliott’s quiet life in Tallahassee, Florida, is disrupted when routine errands land her in the wrong place at the wrong time: the middle of a bank robbery. Accused and cleared of the crime, she flees both media attention and mysterious, threatening notes, to move across the country to Cranberry Cove, where she has inherited her Aunt Maggie’s bed and breakfast on the Northern California coast. Her new beginning is peaceful – that is, until five guests show up at the inn for a weekend, each with a hidden agenda.
Mix together one blushing honeymoon couple, one flamboyant boutique owner, a deadpan traveling salesman, and a charmingly handsome novelist, and there’s more than scones cooking at Cranberry Cottage Bed and Breakfast. As true motives become apparent, will Molly’s past come back to haunt her or will she finally be able to leave it behind?

My review: Cranberry Bluff by Deborah Garner

3 1/2 STARS

This story has twists and turns that left me dizzy.  You don't know who to trust and like. Lots of drama, mystery and cranberries make a story you don't want to put down.

Molly was at the bank as usual to make a deposit was just in time for a bank robbery. She was even arrested for it & then let go. Now she lives across the country and owns a Cranberry Cottage Bed and Breakfast. She is single.

She has five guests one week and they are all keeping secrets from her and each other.  People still think she has the money from the bank robbery. All the guests are so different from each other. There is the newlyweds , a older widow, the handsome playboy author, the loner.

Molly makes a lot of different dishes made with cranberries and the recipes are in the back of the book. Sure makes you hungry with all the different food discussed in the book.

The setting for the book is Cranberry Bluff, CA a small town on the coast.

The pacing was fast.  Not to sure I like the ending but I will look again when its not so early in the 2:00 am

I was given Cranberry Bluff to read so I could give an honest review of it and be part of it's blog tour.
