About the Book:
Cara Mia Delgatto seems to always have murder knocking at her door. She owns The Treasure Chest and is working with a fun, loving staff to turn "trash" into treasure. Shortly after her store's big kick off party, a body is discovered out her back door. Cara was seen in heated discussion with the victim at Cara's party. This was a very quick read to the end. Couldn't wait to find out who did it.

My Review:
This book just didn’t seem like it had the momentum that the first book did. Even so, I really enjoyed it. I loved the mysteries surrounding the murder and all the little storylines that took place. These stories were a little more heavy and not real light hearted which probably contributed to the momentum of the book.

Cara’s new friends are a great addition to the community and the business. There is a lot of time spent on character development, but not in a boring way. I love how they all continue to click with one another, even though they are all completely different from one another. Excited to see what they are all doing in the next installment.
