Book 3 in the Tourist Trap Mystery series
Lynn Cahoon

The tourist town of South Cove, California, is a lovely place to spend the holidays. But this year, shop owner Jill Gardner discovers there's no place like home for homicide. . .

As owner of Coffee, Books, and More, Jill Gardner looks forward to the hustle and bustle of holiday shoppers. But when the mayor ropes her into being liasion for a new work program, 'tis the season to be wary. Local businesses are afraid the interns will be delinquents, punks, or worse. For Jill, nothing's worse than Ted Hendricks--the jerk who runs the program. After a few run-ins, Jill's ready to kill the guy. That, however, turns out to be unnecessary when she finds Ted in his car--dead as a doornail. Officer Greg assumes it's a suicide. Jill thinks it's murder. And if the holidays weren't stressful enough, a spoiled blonde wants to sue the city for breaking her heel. Jill has to act fast to solve this mess--before the other shoe drops. . .

Having read and enjoyed the first two books in this series, I was thrilled to finally read IF THE SHOE KILLS. This story did not disappoint!

I would totally hangout in protagonist Jill Gardner's shop, Coffee, Books and More, Every town needs a place just like it.

In this third installment I continued to enjoy the relationships between the characters in the series. It's been fun watching them grow throughout each book.

Ms. Cahoon once again kept me guessing as to the identity of the killer. She has a great way of throwing in just enough clues to make you say "Hmmm", but then second guess yourself, which I did.

If you like your mysteries cozy, fun, with a touch of romance, and hard to put down, then IF THE SHOE KILLS and the entire Tourist Trap Mystery series is for you!
