    The tenth A Tourist Trap Mystery

    Memories and Murder by Lynn Cahoon is the tenth A Tourist Trap Mystery. Jill Gardner owns Coffee, Books and More in South Cove, California where she is currently worried about her Aunt Jackie. Jackie suddenly called off her engagement to Harrold Snider and refuses to explain why. After a little coaxing from Jill, Jackie confesses that she has been getting some disturbing calls. If the identity of this individual is correct, then Jackie could not marry Harrold. Jill had just heard a lecture about elder fraud, and she believes someone is targeting her aunt. Jill contacts her boyfriend, Detective Greg King so they can look into the matter. Unfortunately, a volunteer at the Senior Project is murdered that evening which becomes Greg’s priority. Jill is not one to standby, so she begins to do some sleuthing on her own. Memories and Murder can be read as a standalone for those new to the series. The author provides the necessary background information on the main characters. Memories and Murder is easy to read thanks to the author’s conversational writing style and smooth flow of the story. The mystery was different because it addresses the issue of elder fraud. People, unfortunately, try to take advantage of those who are not as technologically savvy and who are more trusting. Jackie is lucky that she has Jill and such caring friends. Jill is positive that someone is taking advantage of Jackie and she begins going research online as well as talking to some people in town. Jill got lucky when people approached her with information because they had heard of Jackie’s predicament. I would have liked some more active sleuthing on Jill’s part. I enjoyed Deek’s participation and how he added to the case. Deek is a hard worker and a good addition to Jill’s business. I like how everything tied together to provide a satisfying conclusion. I am curious about Jill’s decisions making regarding Coffee, Books and More. Deek will ask to add a book group, and Jill tells him to check with Aunt Jackie since it will happen in the evenings when she works. Since Jill owns the business, I feel she should make the decision. I just found it odd and unfair to Deek since Aunt Jackie is not his biggest fan (yet). There are plenty of cozy moments with Jill enjoying endless cups of coffee, indulging in Sadie’s confections, taking Emma for runs, helping Amy work on her wedding including a disastrous crafting session, time with Greg, talking with new hire Deek, and reading advance reader copies that have been sent to the store. Memories and Murder is a comfortable cozy mystery with curious calls, a mysterious murder, copious quantities of coffee, plentiful pastries, wedding work, a cute canine, and a busy boyfriend.

    Coastal Oregon Cozy Mystery

    This book is tenth in a series and stands alone very well. This author knows how to welcome new readers at any point in a series without making it repetitive for long-time fans. The plot moves quickly and is never slow or boring. There are many moving pieces that keep the reader's interest until the final reveal. I received this ARC book for free from Net Galley and this is my honest review.

    I loved it!

    I absolutely loved this book! I have been disappointed by the last few novellas, but this full length mystery was top notch and reminded me why I love these characters. This book had great writing, a whodunit that kept me guessing, and characters full of personality. I cannot wait to read the next book! I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

    Great story

    I really enjoyed the book. It was easy to read and kept my interest throughout. I felt like I really knew the characters. They were well described and made me want to read more about them. The references to previous adventures make me want to read more. I will be reading this series from the beginning now.

    Cozy Mystery

    Jill the owner of Coffee, Books, and More finds herself involved in two mysteries in Memories and Murder, number 10 in the Tourist Trap Mystery series from Lynn Cahoon. Jill's aunt Jackie has someone making mysterious calls, it is a scam or really someone from her past? Then there is also a murder in the small town of South Cove for her boyfriend Greg to solve. Light and cozy, even with murder involved, an enjoyable read. It addresses a common problem of con artists scamming the elderly, and both mysteries are tied up neatly in the end. The author's style is to pull you in and make you welcome in the small town oc South Cove. You are as much a part of the circle as any of the other characters are. So pull up a cup of coffee and put your feet up while you enjoy! Thank you #NetGalley for the opportunity of reading #MemoriesandMurder #LynnCahoon
