July Book Pick

  I love a good cozy mystery and this one has a neat vibe.  It is set in a family restaurant that has fallen on hard times.  The restaurant needs updating, but at the end of the month when the bills are paid, there is just no money left to do the updates.

 Lila has just experienced a bad breakup and has come home from the city to help her family save the restaurant (and maybe modernize).  Things are going well until one of Lila's ex-boyfriends dies right there in the restaurant.  This event will set the reader on a who-dun-it adventure where our Lila will get into many things that she really needs to stay out of (but this makes the book fun :) ).  I just adore these kinds of books!!! This one is perfect for a day at the park, a stormy afternoon, or to read while your toes are in the sand.
