Nestled in the barrier islands of Floridaâ€™s Gulf Coast, Fort
Myers Beach is home to Mary â€śSassyâ€ť Cabot and Bridget
Mayfieldâ€”owners of the bookstore cafĂ©, Read â€™Em and Eat. But
when theyâ€™re not dishing about books or serving up scones,
Sassy and Bridgy are keeping tabs on hard-boiled murder.
Read â€™Em and Eat is known for its delicious breakfast and
lunch treats, along with quite a colorful clientele. If itâ€™s
not Rowena Gustavson loudly debating the merits of the
current book club selection, itâ€™s Miss Augusta Maddox
lecturing tourists on rumors of sunken treasure among the
islands. Itâ€™s no wonder Sassyâ€™s favorite is Delia Batson, a
regular at the Emily Dickinson table. Augustaâ€™s cousin and
best friend Delia is painfully shyâ€”which makes the news of
her murder all the more shocking.
No one is more distraught than Augusta, and Sassy wants to
help any way she can. But Augusta doesnâ€™t have time for
sympathy. She wants Deliaâ€™s killer foundâ€”and sheâ€™s not
taking no for an answer. Now Sassy is on the case, and sheâ€™d
better act fast before thereâ€™s any more trouble in paradise.
Includes a buttermilk pie recipe!

Re: Well Read, Then Dead
This sounds like quite an interesting read, since I've never
been to Florida. I've seen plenty of photos, and you do a
wonderful job of explaining that area. I'm sure that you'll
do a great job of transporting me there as well, once I
start reading your book, as well, so I'll have no problem
reading your book!! Once the chill of Fall starts here up
North, I'll need a book like this to keep me warm, along
with a cup of cocoa!! I love the setting as well as the
cover!! Great job, and great posting today!! Thank you so
much for coming here to Fresh Fiction!!

I have not read your other book so trying this one. Keep writing because many of us need the outlets of reading.
