Book Review | Cappuccinos, Cupcakes, and a Corpse by Harper Lin – Cape Bay Cafe Mystery Book 1

Date Published | January 25, 2017

Date Read | June 2021

Goodreads Rating | 4

Overall | This was a cute mystery with an interesting murder

Pros | She’s an animal rescuer! Thank you for not leaving the animal out in the wild to fend for itself – I can automatically tell when an author doesn’t like cats or dogs because they think it’s “happy” being all alone fending for itself + being homelss and starving.

Cons | None

Warnings | None

POV | First Person POV Past Tense

Will I Be Continuing With The Series | No

Description |

Francesca Amaro moves back to her hometown of Cape Bay, Massachusetts, and takes over the family business, Antonia’s Italian Café. She spends her days making delicious artisan cappuccinos, until she stumbles upon her neighbor’s dead body. When the police discover Mr. Cardosi was poisoned, Francesca becomes a suspect.

The victim’s son, Matty, happens to be Francesca’s old high school friend. Together, they uncover the secrets of the locals in order to find the killer in their idyllic beach town.
