    Well this is a fun find. I found it on Kindle Unlimited, and I decided to give it a try. I'm glad I did. Sunny. What a fun character. She has hit rock bottom and is coming home to her aunt who helped raise her, only to discover her aunt is on a cruise and has left her to manage the café. Except Sunny doesn't know how to manage the café. Her first day on the job and a food influencer comes to the Sunny Side Café, and then falls face first into her eggs. Dead. What is Sunny to do?

Rumors are flying. She is scrambling. And her aunt is STILL on that cruise. Can Sunny help solve the murder before becoming a victim herself? Good character development. Humor sprinkled throughout. And because it's a cozy mystery, there are shenanigans galore. Such a fun read.

    Sunny Charles has had a bad year. Upon divorcing her husband, she found out about his association with criminals via a visit by the FBI and being dunned by everyone he owed money to before his disappearing act. Coming to stay with her Aunt Rita in Florida was her chance to get back on her feet...but Auntie neglected to tell her she was going on a cruise and Sunny was now responsible for her home, her restaurant and her not-so -friendly cat.

Coming to stay with her Aunt Rita in Florida was her chance to get back on her feet...but Auntie neglected to tell her she was going on a cruise and Sunny was now responsible for her home, her restaurant and her not-so -friendly cat. She manages to deal and is learning the ropes and the first customer she can’t avoid waiting on...dies right in front of her. The cafe is shut down and the coroner says it’s murder, and her cook is the main suspect. She is afraid for her aunt’s business and makes it her business to find out who killed the food vlogger, not as easy as she thought, the woman was not popular in town. After a few false starts she stumbles on enough clues to figure it out, and the killer realizes she knows before she can notify the police...but is saved in the Nick of time. This is a fun culinary cozy with some eccentric characters. I received an ARC to peruse and offer my opinion freely.

    I liked the story line and the murder mystery elements very much. As always the author does an excellent job with these components of the book. I did not care for the main character Sunny Charles. She comes off as completely clueless which doesn't mesh with her background. She was not raised in extreme wealth, yet she cannot cook an egg? How did she feed herself growing up? Auntie Rita either failed drastically bringing her up (which given her practical portrayal does not sound reasonable) or the I liked the story line and the murder mystery elements very much.

Auntie Rita either failed drastically bringing her up (which given her practical portrayal does not sound reasonable) or there is a disconnect with the character's development. The story has Sunny married to a wealthy criminal who employed chefs, but logically her development before her marriage doesn't make sense.

    After a nasty divorce and finding out her husband had unsavory people he was doing business with, Sunny runs back to her beloved aunt's to recuperate and restore. When she arrives in Parfait, FL, she discovers her aunt has gone off on a vacation with her girlfriends and left Sunny with instructions to manage her cafe in her absence.

When she arrives in Parfait, FL, she discovers her aunt has gone off on a vacation with her girlfriends and left Sunny with instructions to manage her cafe in her absence. First, her aunt's cat is not so friendly and she must lock her bedroom door at night or get her face clawed. Her next door neighbor, Nick, is a nice looking guy who turns out to be the chef at her cafe. He also has a hateful wife. One of her servers, Didi, though much younger, turns out to be a great friend. On her first day at work a nasty young woman who happens to be a food vlogger, drops dead in her "eggs over easy." As you can imagine, this is not the start Sunny was hoping for. Her chef keeps getting hauled in to the police station as a suspect. She has to shut the cafe down. Poison was found on the plate her eggs were on. Between being a crime scene and Nick getting hauled off, then getting mad at Sunny because she questioned him about the murder, Sunny is having a terrible time. Add in some witchy wenches who start rumors, everyone in town thinking poor Rita's cafe is going down, and some very quirky townspeople, Sunny sets out to solve the case, despite Detective Garcia requesting her not get involved. But, lo and behold, Sunny comes up with most of the answers. This was a fun read and I think I'll head back to Parfait for some more fun and mystery.

    This was a fun start to a new series! I like all this author's other series, so I knew I'd want to read this one too.

I just loved Auntie Rita whenever we managed to get to talk to her, since she was on a cruise with some friends. I'm anxious for when she comes back and to see her in full action not just on the sidelines. And I'm not a fan of a cat who's mean and unfriendly to almost everyone. It honestly doesn't make a lot of sense. There's only a handful of series that have cats like this, and I can't say I like any of those kitties. (I'm more of a sucker for a cuddly sweet cat that curls up with its owner yet protects them when it needs to, lol). I really had no idea whodunit, but I wasn't surprised at who it was if that makes sense, because it did make sense. It was a good showdown too, and once everything was wrapped up, Sunny was able to go back to getting used to being manager again. I'm really anxious to borrow the next book on KU too!

    What a great first book in a new series! The main character has gone through a messy divorce and has arrived to stay with her aunt. She’s sensitive and caring, but lacks self confidence. The setting is a small, seaside town in southern Florida. The people there are friendly, but like to gossip. The storyline is engaging. You wonder how the main character is going to get herself out of this latest trouble. The book is an easy read. The story has a good flow and keeps your attention.

    Meh. The lead character is pretty annoying. Nice one minute, and snarky in the next. She was brought up by her aunt, but seems to have learned no skills to live an independent life. She married a mobster? That story was barely touched on. I skipped quite a bit just to find out who did it!
