Apple Caramel Mayhem

*City Developer Murdered at Historic Castle*

Anna’s Café is flourishing. Locals and tourists can’t stop gorging on her delicious cupcakes.

Dolphin Bay is in turmoil as a city developer proposes new construction on the scenic Coastal Walk. Locals flock to the town meeting to protest. Hours later, the man is dead, stabbed to death in a room full of people. The police face a big challenge since everyone present had a motive to kill. Then the murder weapon is discovered.

When Anna’s friend and local resort owner Charlie Robinson becomes the top suspect, she reluctantly steps in to help. Can she ignore his sordid reputation and trust he is innocent?

New secrets are revealed and multiple suspects emerge as Anna travels across cities and digs into the past to find the real killer. Her personal life proves to be highly eventful, keeping her on her toes. Meanwhile, the local football team is in dire need of assistance.

Apple Caramel Mayhem is a fast paced clean cozy mystery that will keep you guessing till the end. Book 3 in Dolphin Bay is chock full of fall flavor and sets the tone for a cozy autumn evening by the fireside.

If you like cozy mysteries with strong women, second chances, friendships that endure and plenty of yummy food, you will love Apple Caramel Mayhem.

**My thoughts**
There's another murder in the small town of Dolphin Bay, only Anna cannot possibly be to blame for this one. And of course, people immediately seek her out to find out the truth.

The cafe and bookstore are doing well. Cassie is slowly warming up to Meg. I almost want to smack her at times for being so cold to her own daughter. There is just clearly so much in her past that we do not know.

And Teddy is a moron.

I think I would get a kick out of visiting Dolphin Bay, particularly hanging out with Anna's friends, who call themselves the Firecrackers. And I got hungry while reading this because they were constantly eating! Some great food ideas, though.

In this one, the story is much more intricate and other characters are much more involved. Plus there is a great twist. This series just keeps improving and I hope more follow!
