BERRIED AT SEA
Book 4 in the Cranberry Cove Mysteries
by Peg Cochran
It’s a marriage made in murder in the new Cranberry Cove Mystery from USA Today bestselling author Peg Cochran!
The long-awaited wedding of Monica and Greg is the highlight of the harvest season in Cranberry Cove, drawing friends from far and wide to help them celebrate. Among the guests are an old college friend of Monica’s and the woman’s boisterous new husband, a man with many enemies and more than a few bitter women in his past. When he turns up dead on a boat, the victim of a fatal stabbing, Monica steps in once again to unravel the mystery.
As she dredges up clues and wades through a long list of suspects, Monica’s sleuthing becomes all the more pressing when the local police are convinced that her friend did the deed. Monica will have to clear her name fast and track down the real culprit as the killer threatens to bring her sweet wedded bliss to a bitter end.
Includes tasty recipes!

The recipe may shout fall, but I think a nice cold slice from the fridge would be perfect on a hot summer day!
