Treble at the Jam Fest Book Review
It’s official. You can add Treble at the Jam Fest to the long list of cozies that have been added to my pile because a vibrant and appealing cover caught my eye. This cover looked so full of summer and fun, I knew I wanted to give it a try. And I’m glad I did.
This is the fourth book in the Food Lovers Mystery Series (and the first one I have read). We follow store manager, Erin Murphy through her adventures in the picturesque town of Jewel Bay, Montana. Erin is a busy lady in this book. Between family issues, relationship questions, hiring new staff for the Merc, oh and trying to help solve the murder of a famous musician that happens to happen right in the middle of one of their biggest events of the year.
So, why should you give this one a try? Here are my top reasons to read this book.
You’ll Want to Visit Montana
The author does a great job of painting a picture of how tranquil and beautiful the city of Jewel Bay is. Montana isn’t necessarily the first place I think of when I’m planning a scenic getaway, but after reading this book, it makes me not want to forget about a state that I can’t say appears on my radar all that often.
A Strong Family with Strong Opinions
I love when families work and play together. They are even more interesting when family dynamics come into play (which is pretty much always the case). The Murphy family is no different. Erin’s father was killed in a car accident when she was in high school. But her mother and sister (as well as other extended family) all still live and work in Jewel Bay. They are a family of strong women with their own thoughts and opinions. It was interesting to watch their family dynamics weave into the rest of the story.
An Ending I Didn’t See Coming
I read quite a few cozy mysteries, and I am pretty good at least having a sense for who the killer is. Let me tell you, in this book I was totally wrong and I loved that! I always enjoy when I am surprised at the end of the story.
So if you are looking for a summer read that is full of fun and adventure, pick up a copy of Treble at the Jam Fest. And don’t leave today without entering for your chance to win a copy! As part of the Great Escapes Virtual Book Tour, I’m happy to offer you a chance to win this great book!
