‘Cold Drip’ (Barks & Beans Cafe Cozy Mystery Book 6) by Heather Day Gilbert

About The Book
BOOK 6 in the bestselling BARKS & BEANS CAFE cozy mystery series!!!

Welcome to the Barks & Beans Cafe, a quaint place where folks pet shelter dogs while enjoying a cup of java…and where murder sometimes pays a visit.

Thanksgiving is on the way, and Macy’s thrilled when her boyfriend Titan says he’s coming to town for a week-long visit. She plans to take him to some of her favorite haunts, including the sprawling caverns nearby.

But when the lights go out during their underground tour and a local society darling plunges to her death, Macy can’t shake the feeling that the cave’s slippery floors weren’t entirely to blame. She taps into the admittedly limited skills of her upscale barista, Milo, to do a little snooping in the moneyed circles he moves in. When he unearths a sinkhole of lies, Macy slides straight toward a killer who’s not about to stop until every leak is sealed…permanently.

Join siblings Macy and Bo Hatfield as they sniff out crimes in their hometown…with plenty of dogs along for the ride! The Barks & Beans Cafe cozy mystery series features a small town, an amateur sleuth, and no swearing or graphic scenes. Find all the books at heatherdaygilbert.com!

My Rating: 4 Stars!
‘The wicked stepmother scenario isn’t limited to fairy tales, you know.’

Heather Day Gilbert once again delights her loyal readers with another offering in her Barks & Beans Cafe cozy mystery series. I always look forward to each one so very much. Siblings Bo and Macy Hatfield just seem to find trouble always around and are quite dab hands at solving crimes. While at the same time, finding owners for the shelter dogs they showcase in one corner of their cafe. A cafe, incidentally, at which I’d love to have lunch sometime. This one is just fine, folks, and I highly recommend not only this book, but this author!

My thanks to the publisher for a copy of this book. The opinion in this review is my own.
