Guidebook to Murder / Lynn Cahoon / 220 pages

Last week Jill Gardner, owner of Coffee, Books, and More, read a mystery.  Today she lived one.  Her elderly friend, Miss Emily - whose derelict house and yard were threatened with citations and condemnation by city hall and sought after by a wealthy developer - was dead; her best friend and city planner, Amy, had gone missing; her windfall inheritance might belong to a mysterious granddaughter; and the great-looking guy, detective Greg King, who seemed to be into her...might be married.  She had become a walking, talking country song.  This first book in the Tourist Trap Mystery series will leave the reader wanting more.  This is most enjoyable, cozy whodunit...set in a small town with an intrepid heroine and a supporting cast of interesting characters.
