Jill Gardner, owner of Coffee, Books, and More is active on the city council as liaison for the business community in South Cove, a coastal tourist town in California. Ted Hendricks is director of the welfare-to-work program in Bakerstown who offered the services of participants to work in the local businesses of South Cove. Ted Hendricks is not the most liked person anywhere and when he is found dead in his shiny red Mustang convertible, there are questions that need answering as the obvious is not the obvious.
Jill who considers herself an amateur sleuth begins piecing together clues, with caution from her police officer boyfriend, of Ted’s work and life and gets a little too close to finding the truth putting her life in danger when a man arrives in town investigating Ted’s activities.
Lynn Cahoon’s novel If the Shoe Kills is a crime drama mystery with suspense and humor that all crime drama book lovers will like for a day or evening read. The book is full of mystery and humor that is entertaining for all amateur sleuths who love solving a mystery.
I received this book free from Kensington Books through the Net Galley reviewer program in exchange for an honest opinion in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission Guidelines.
