Death by Pumpkin Spice, the third in the Bookstore Cafe series, has Krissy scoring a date with the handsome Will to a Halloween party. During the party, a woman dressed as Marilyn Monroe is found dead. With 2 other women dressed in the same costume, which woman was the real target and why?
I loved the plot; a torrential rainstorm, a Halloween costume party, family secrets, multiple suspects and one very large horror house made for a very Agatha Christie-type mystery with lots of red herrings, plot twists and suspects. Good pacing leading up to an action packed ending made for an enjoyable read.
Overall, a really great plot made this a very enjoyable book and one I recommend for anyone who loves cozy mysteries. I haven't read the other books in the series, and although it had a few references to previous books, I found that it didn't hamper my enjoyment at all.
Thank you to Kensington Books and Netgalley for an advanced copy to read and review.
