Roxy Constantine is the jam queen of Shavano, Colorado. But her social life is a bust, and she’s still recovering from a bad experience as a line cook in Denver. Things improve when she meets tasty local chef Nate Robicheaux, but she’s also fending off the attentions of another local, Brett Holmes, who won’t take no for an answer. When Brett threatens to derail Roxy’s career, the two have a very public fight. A few days later, Brett is found murdered in his restaurant kitchen, and suddenly Roxy’s a prime suspect. Now Roxy must find the truth about Brett and his murderer before the town of Shavano decides her reign as jam queen is over for good.

A really great mystery that will keep you guessing. ~ Jennifer – Simply Love Books


This was a really fun read. I love a good cozy mystery and this one was really good. Roxy Constantine is back in her hometown after a terrible experience in Denver. She makes jams and sells them at the local farmers market and has made a name for herself. Everything is going well, except for an old colleague, Brett Holmes, takes a job at a local restaurant and decides he wants to go out with Roxy. She has no interest in him but he keeps asking. At one of the markets she meets handsome Nate Robicheaux. They hit it off and start seeing each other. Brett makes a scene and then he is found dead. Roxy is the number one suspect. She starts digging in to find out who killed Brett. I really enjoyed everything about this story. The plot, the characters and the pace were spot on. Really looking forward to reading more about these characters.
