I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

This is the second book in the Killer Coffee Mystery Series.

The setting is in Honey Springs, Kentucky. Roxy Bloom gave up being a lawyer, to move back to Honey Springs, where she spent her childhood summers with her Aunt Maxi. She became the owner of a coffee shop called The Bean Hive. Roxy happily starts her mornings at 4:30 a.m. and along with offering specialty coffee, there are pastries and lunch items. Roxy gets help from Bunny, who is in her septuagenarian years, and two high school girls. Roxy is recently engaged to Patrick Cane, who was her sweetheart during the summers.

After receiving an order for her apple tarts, Patrick and Roxy headed for The Farmer's Market to visit Hill's Orchard fruit stand, owned by Fred Hill to get the apples needed for the tarts. Patrick and Roxy witnessed a heated argument between Louise and Fred. The argument was over Bertie, a rare chicken that Fred adopted.

Having forgotten to pay Fred for the apples, Roxy headed to Hill's Orchard, only to end up witnessing Louise standing over Fred's body. All signs point to Louise, but Roxy is determined to find proof that Louise is innocent. Roxy's sleuthing leads her to discover a secret about Patrick.

This was an enjoyable read with plenty of laugh out loud moments! I, especially loved the bantering between Aunt Maxi, Penny Bloom, and Bunny.
