Today's book spotlight is on
Book 8 in the Tourist Trap Mysteries
by Lynn Cahoon

I've really been looking forward to this newest installment of author Lynn Cahoon's
Tourist Trap Mysteries.

A visit to the serene coastal town of South Cove, California, could make anybody feel refreshed and inspired. But as Jill Gardner—owner of Coffee, Books, and More—discovers, some folks won’t live to tell about it . . .

Mystery author Nathan Pike checked into South Cove Bed & Breakfast to compose a compelling novel, not commit murder. But things get real when a rival B&B owner ends up exactly like the victim in his draft—undeniably dead. As Nathan prepares to complete his magnum opus behind bars, Jill’s the only one who can prove his innocence and deconstruct the plot of a twisted killer!

To me, happiness has always been reading a good book. Therefore, I was ecstatic to be reading HOSPITALITY AND HOMICIDE.

I have been reading the Tourist Trap Mysteries since book one, GUIDE BOOK TO MURDER, and I was quickly taken with the writing style of Lynn Cahoon. She writes a story that pulls you in and makes you feel a part of the tale.

What fun it was to be in South Cove, CA again! The lovely setting, and the quirky, eclectic characters always ensure that every visit will be as entertaining as the one before. This statement holds true with the newest installment, HOSPITALITY AND HOMICDE.

As if things aren’t busy enough with her business, love life, and taking classes (just to name a few), murder hits town again, and protagonist Jill Gardner finds herself up to her ears in murder, mystery, and mayhem . . .  again! But never fear, Jill can handle it all! Can’t she?

Thank you to author Lynn Cahoon for once again penning a fast paced story that had me on the edge of my seat for more than half the book! I swiped through the pages of my Kindle so fast my finger started cramping! There was so much going on in this book that it could have become muddled if the not for the skill of this fantastic writer. Yet being so perfect at her craft, Ms. Cahoon made HOSPIALITY AND HOMICDE the book to beat in her already brilliant series!


Lynn Cahoon is the author of the NYT and USA Today best-selling Tourist Trap cozy mystery series. GUIDEBOOK TO MURDER, book 1 of the series, won the Reader's Crown for Mystery Fiction in 2015.

  3. Hospitality and Homicide sound wonderful (as a book, that is)! Thanks for the great review and the giveaway!

  4. Great review! I absolutely love this series, just got the 4th one on iBooks so I'm just a tad behind but trust me if I end up winning, I will be catching up quickly! barbie17 (at) gmail (dot) com

  5. I love her style of writing as well. Jill's clues and pieces to the puzzle seem to come from actual detective work. I'm not a fan of "lucky" clues when the protagonist is a dimwit. Two thumbs up, Mrs. Cahoon. ����

    1. Camille, thank you for your kind words. :)

  6. Thanks for hosting the spotlight and giveaway Lisa!!
