Scornful Scones by @MAcozymystery #REVIEW

Scornful Scones, Mildred Abbott
Cozy Corgi Mysteries #5
With summer approaching, Estes Park is abuzz with flowers, baking, tourists, and… murder.

Tourist season is about to begin, and the lovely weather has Winifred Page and her corgi sidekick, Watson, leaving the comfort of the Cozy Corgi Bookshop and Bakery to reluctantly attend a celebration at the Black Bear Roaster coffee shop. But a chill of uncertainty settles over Fred when a choking death doesn’t seem so accidental—despite the dry hazardous scones.

As Fred and police sergeant Branson Wexler rekindle a possible romance, Fred shares her suspicions. But is she seeing murder at every turn? Learning to trust her gut feelings, Fred risks the ire of the coffee shop owner to investigate not one, but two, deaths.

As suspects and motives abound, old resentments are uncovered, and Fred and Watson build new friendships even as they follow the crumbs to find clues to a killer.

I am completely addicted to this series! These books are like comfort food for my reading soul.

Just when life are starting to get back to normal in the tourist town of Estes Park CO, there's another death. And Fred and Watson are front and center when things turn deadly. As hard as Fred tries not to get involved, she can't seem to help herself. The author does a great job of letting you believe you know who the murderer is but throwing in enough red herrings that you just aren't quite positive.

Things keep moving on the personal front for Fred as well....you just aren't sure if they are moving forward or in circles. And I don't know if anyone else is curious where Branson keeps disappearing to, but I am!!

Pick up these books for the adorable covers, keep coming back for the mystery!
