Dead and Berried by Karen MacInerney
In this story my favourite Inn host Natalie Barnes has a lot on her plate.It's October on Cranberry island and the time of year when things should have been getting quiet here it looks like her Inn is haunted and if that was not bad enough her friend and employee Polly has been a no show for work.
Unfortunately Polly does show up .... dead !!!!!
With an annoying visitor in the Inn hoping to get advice from Nat on opening her own Inn, Candy is really getting under Nat's feet with all her questions and annoying habits. Things go from bad to worse when a blast from Nat's past shows up, and then the Reverend McLaughlin is found murdered.
Poor Nat is still getting over the death of her friend Polly who police believe committed suicide, but Natalie does not believe that for one moment, and makes it her mission to find out what really happened to her friend.
Of course that would have been enough for one person to cope with, but now her best friend Charlene is brought in for questioning over the death of her boyfriend Reverend McLaughlin so it looks like Nat is going to have to keep the coffee pot topped up if she is going to have enough energy to find out just what on earth is going on on her island and who exactly is killing people off and why!!!
This is a fab series that seems to only get better with each book. Natalie is a great lead character that I just can't fail to really enjoy reading about. Each book in this series comes with delicious recipes at the back ,if you were not convinced about reading this before then these will be a clincher. Enjoy!!!
If possible read with a large cup of tea/coffee and a large slice of cake!!!
