This is the second in the Comfort Food Mystery series. I read the first one, Do or Diner, as a book of the month for the Cozy Mystery Corner on Goodreads. I really like this series, almost as much as I love comfort food. This book ties together an older murder from Trixie’s youth, with a current murder in the guest cottages. Trixie investigates with her maybe love interest Deputy Ty Brisco. The diner staff are still on as recurring characters along with some of the townsfolk.
The mystery is an interesting twisting and turning plot although I did guess who did it about two thirds of the way through. It was more of a hunch though not really based on facts I picked up on. Having an idea who did it did not hamper my enjoyment of the story.
The characters are friendly and likable. The love interest is a hunk. The setting is fully developed with lots of detail about the diner, the cottages and the surrounding area. The mystery has lots of details and plot lines that are tied together. Fun cozy mystery read.
