Publisher's Summary

The New York Times best-selling author of Dying for a Cupcake returns with a new mystery filled with lost family, hidden treasure, and long-buried secrets....
Five-and-dime store owner Devereaux "Dev" Sinclair moved to Shadow Bend for her family. But when her long-lost mother shows up in town, she realizes too much kin can be killer....
Shadow Bend's library closed years ago because of budgetary problems, so when a wealthy benefactor offers to reopen it, everyone, including Dev, is thrilled. But Dev's excitement wanes when she realizes the mysterious donor is actually her runaway mother Yvette's latest husband, Jett Benedict.
Dev suspects that Yvette and Jett's intentions aren't as noble as they appear, but before she can discover what they're really up to, Jett turns up dead - and all clues point to Yvette as the prime suspect. Even though Dev has no loyalty to Yvette, she's in a bind. Setting the record straight could prove her mother is a killer. But doing nothing might get her mother booked for a crime she didn't commit....

My last one in this series

I liked the previous books but I don't like a lot of sexual innuendo in what is supposed to be a cozy.

Pretty Good

Dev is an interesting character. However, I find love triangles as plot development annoying. This has dragged on too long. Dev needs to make a decision and move on with her life. Other than that the book was ok.
