Read to Death by Terrie Farley Moran is the 3rd book in the Read ‘Em and Eat cozy mystery series.
In the parking lot of the Read ’Em and Eat Café and Book Corner, I stood by the side of a sky blue van with oversized white letters advertising the “Gulf Coast Cab and Van” etched on the center door panel. I mentally counted the members of the Cool Reads/Warm Climate Book Club as they settled in. All six were present. My BFF and business partner, Bridgy Mayfield, was busily stowing thermoses of sweet tea and pastry boxes in the carrier right behind the driver.
Sassy Cabot and Bridgy Mayfield are at it again in Read to Death at the Read ‘Em and Eat Café. This time, they take the “Cool Reads/Warm Climate” book club on their annual field trip to the Edison-Ford estate for an outing, with their favorite driver, Oscar, at the helm. It’s a wonderful trip, and Oscar makes sure to tell them all about the history of the estate—with stories about Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, and Harvey Firestone.
But, when they get back from the trip, Oscar is found dead. The book club members are immediately considered suspects, and so are Sassy and Bridgy. So, they must figure out how and why Oscar was killed.
