Cranberry Bluff by Deborah Garner is a Cozy Mystery.
It was a fun book to read. I liked the characters except for one (and I’m not telling which). Most of them were oddballs of one sort or another.
I particularly liked the main character, because she is a great deal like me. I think we would be friends if she lived next door (or relatively close). She is a bit OCD and prefers the quiet life.
I loved the inn too. It would be nice to have a place like that. Not sure I would want to do all the cooking myself but everything else would be good.
The story is interesting too. I like it way it took an ordinary everyday happening and turned it to a life changing situation.
About the book:
Molly Elliott’s quiet life in Tallahassee, Florida, is disrupted when routine errands land her in the wrong place at the wrong time: the middle of a bank robbery. Accused and cleared of the crime, she flees both media attention and mysterious, threatening notes, to move across the country to Cranberry Cove, where she has inherited her Aunt Maggie’s bed and breakfast on the Northern California coast. Her new beginning is peaceful – that is, until five guests show up at the inn for a weekend, each with a hidden agenda.
Mix together one blushing honeymoon couple, one flamboyant boutique owner, a deadpan traveling salesman, and a charmingly handsome novelist, and there’s more than scones cooking at Cranberry Cottage Bed and Breakfast. As true motives become apparent, will Molly’s past come back to haunt her or will she finally be able to leave it behind?
