Joanna Coffee is hiding from her past, which includes an ex who cheated on her with her best friend. Too ashamed to go back home to Bennett Falls, Jo is living with her aunt clear across the country.
But a crime occurs in the coffee shop where Jo works, and it makes Jo rethink what she’s doing with her life. She’s determined to solve the crime and the problems in her own life.
Joanna Coffee is living up to her name, planning the grand opening of her coffee shop in Bennett Falls. At least until local millionaire Sherman Cromwell winds up dead in the street holding a macchiato from Jo’s shop. Not exactly the kind of press she wanted for her new business.
Now the prime suspect in Cromwell’s murder, Jo is determined to prove her innocence, even if it means donning her own detective cap and solving this mystery herself. If she doesn’t clear her name soon, she’ll be turning in her apron for an orange jumpsuit.
