I have a distinct fondness for cozy/amateur sleuth mysteries set along the East Coast. It might be my love of my guilty pleasure TV show "Murder She Wrote" or whatever, but it is a favorite setting.

Nat has an inn to run and that is threatened by the promise of a development deal of a hewgah resort right next door. The owner of the development company winds up dead and fingers are pointing at Nat. There are other likely suspects, but she's the likeliest.

The mystery is handled wonderfully and I cannot wait to read the rest of the series. I also liked yummy recipes in the back of the book. Karen MacInerney did a fab job of showing Nat running the inn, making the breakfast goodies each morning and getting involved in solving the murder in a realistic manner as possible. That makes for a pleasant reading experience for me and doesn't feed into my pet peeve of 'How does she/he do dat?' when the food is always in the freezer for just such an emergency, running a business, volunteering, perfect dishes for each occasion, solving the murder and always well know....

Five atmospheric mystery beans.....
