This was one of those cozy mysteries that addresses a issue that is all to real . It was a heart felt and very touching edition to this series where your heart actually goes out to the murder suspect and inside your some how rooting for best friends, cafe owners of Read 'Em and Eat and ameteur sleuths  Sassy Cabot and Bridgy Mayfield to find the real killer because it's just not possible that this person could have done it but could they?, It made me wonder and wanting to see how it would turn out.

Cafe owner of Read 'Em and Eat, Sassy is donating some books to the library for their annual fundraising sale, when an argument ensues between a visitor to the library and a library volunteer Tanya Lipscome, known around Fort Myers Beach, Florida as "Tanya Trouble" you know just by that name alone she is just what the name inplies , nothing but trouble and there seems to be nothing but trouble when Tanya is found murdered in her hot tub.

The visitor to the library is soon arrested and is charged with the murder of Tanya, a man that you will undoubtedly come to love and have a hard time seeing as a murder suspect, his name is Alan Mersky he's a war vet with Postraumatic Stress Disorder, who really has no grip on reality and my heart went out to him as i'm sure yours will too. He is also the brother of Sassy's former boss and when Sassy witnesses this argument between Alan and Tanya, Sassy makes a phone call to her former boss wondering if he was indeed him or a relation.

Being married to Tanya was not a picnic, her husband wanted out of the marriage and with two step sons and practically the whole town hating her there is no shortage of suspects that wanted "Tanya Trouble" dead. Being the spirited women that they are Sassy and Bridgy are ready to risk life and limb with a few life risking adventures mixed in to help save to save Alan, a man with a haunted past destroyed by war and a all to sweet and genuine soul.

 With Heartfelt and touching characters, addressing a issue that is a terrible disorder that touches victims of the war, PTSD. This murder mystery strikes will strike a cord with your soul as it did mine and you will not forget anytime soon. Sassy and Bridgy are surely at their best being busy with Read 'Em and Eat organizing their book clubs, (witch I loved) and making sure that their customers were satisfied. Miguel the kitchen cook is one of my favorites and hope to see him more in future books in this series,he was another fun loving and very passionate character. Very eager to read the next book in this series.
