Once again, Nicole's warm and spunky best friend Lia is ready to help solve the mystery along with Nicole's admirer, Private Investigator Dean Coogan.Stuart Helm ruffled many feathers over the years as he investigated his stories. Who wanted to get him "out of the way" while ruining the reputation of the Cannoli Cafe?Was is it Business Administrator Thomas Gornick, who was vehemently angry his son could not attend a prestigious university after Stuart wrote a shameful article about him? Or was it Detective Dwight Dawkins, a man who bitterly hated Stuart for his write-up about how Nicole solved the last murder in town, effectively painting him as an inept investigator? Could it have been Danielle Pruitt, a jealous reporter at the Rosewood Gazette who was tired of getting the boring stories and no recognition? Or perhaps it was the owner of the dwindling Rosewood Coffee Shoppe, Bert Davison, or one of his mob-friend "associates."Join Nicole, Lia, Dean, and Nicole's dog, Ringo, as they try to determine who murdered Stuart Helm while clearing the reputation of the Cannoli Cafe (and Nicole) in the process!This is the second book in the new Cannoli Cafe Cozy Mystery Series by Lizzie Benton, set in a quaint town in New Jersey, in close proximity to New York City and its gorgeous skyline.
