I'm so excited to be a stop on the blog tour for
Book 5 in All-Day Breakfast Café Mysteries
by Lena Gregory

Ex-New Yorker and local diner owner Gia Morelli is still getting used to the sweltering Florida sun. But this summer she’ll have to deal with a more dangerous kind of heat—when she’s hot on the trail of another murderer . . .
Summer in Boggy Creek has arrived, and Gia’s best friend, successful real estate agent Savannah, is getting hitched. Now she’s enlisted Gia’s sleuthing talents in a desperate search for the perfect wedding dress. But when Savannah mysteriously vanishes after showing a mansion to a bigwig client, Gia investigates the house Savannah was trying to sell. The first clue she finds is Savannah’s car in the driveway. Inside the house, they stumble on Savannah’s potential buyer—dead. Someone had apparently closed the deal—with a two by four full of nails to the client’s head. Soon afterward, a woman’s body is fished from the lake near the same house. The townsfolk are now sweating bullets over the murders, and the heat comes down on poor Gia to find her missing friend, and track down the killer.

Having just finished an egg and cheese sandwich on toast, what better time could there be for me to write my review for book 5 in the All-Day Breakfast Café Mystery series, WHOLE LATTE MURDER?

WHOLE LATTE MURDER is the perfect installment to the All-Day Breakfast Café Mysteries. I’ve enjoyed watching the characters grow from book to book. I really feel like I know these people, which, has me truly invested in each new story.

Author Lena Gregory has a lot going on in this addition to her series. Page after page I was glued to this book, unwilling to put it down until all my questions were answered. As the facts and the fake outs kept coming, I found I was second guessing myself. Heck, more than second guessing. By the time all had come to light, I was exhausted in that way that only comes after reading a really good book.

And kudos to author Gregory for a murder weapon I’ve yet to see in a cozy mystery. It was as disturbing as it was original.

A lot has happened since the first in this delicious series released back in 2018. Over the years, each new book, much like a new ingredient, has added depth and flavor to this recipe of a mystery series. WHOLE LATTE MURDER has added another whole layer.
