SPOON TO BE DEAD by Dana Mentink, Reviewed by Kim #ReleaseDay

I have really enjoyed each and every story in the Shake Shop series! The characters are likable, the mysteries have kept me guessing until they very end, and the romance that has bloomed between Trinidad and Quinn throughout this series is so sweet!

Trinidad is a wonderful character that is easy to like and root for. I love her sleuthing ways and how bold she can be when trying to solve a mystery. Her and Quinn are perfect for each other and I’ve loved watching their romance develop over the series. Trinidad’s employees, twin brothers Carlos and Diego, always add a great touch of humor to the story. In fact, there are so many great secondary characters in this series that I could talk about, but instead, I’ll just say each and every character adds so much to these stories.

Spoon to be Dead is the third title in this series. While it can easily be read as a standalone, I so enjoyed reading the entire series. You really come to know and love the characters. I highly recommend each and every story and I can’t wait for the next cozy mystery from Dana Mentink! 5 stars!
*I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own. This is a clean read.

With snow abound and tourists trickling through, she'll do anything to keep her milkshake dreams afloat, even if it means catering a holiday steamboat party for some new arrivals in town.

But when her good-for-nothing ex crashes through her shop's door claiming he's being charged with murder, things go sideways. With clues piling up like whipped cream on a sundae and motives abound, Trinidad and her fellow ex-wives must solve this murder before she's finally thrown for a scoop.
