Well Read Then Dead (A Read 'Em and Eat Mystery) #1 by Terrie Farley Moran, published 2014 by Berkley
First chapter, first paragraph:
"Oh, pu-leeze, Rowena, Anya Seton never measured up to Daphne du Maurier's elegance. I'm shocked you would say such a thing." Jocelyn Kendall, pastor's wife and book club gadfly, crossed and recrossed her legs in perfect tempo with the ever-increasing meter of her rant. Our discussion of Green Darkness was deteriorating rapidly.Book description:
Fort Myers Beach. Florida, is home to Mary “Sassy” Cabot and Bridget Mayfield—owners of the bookstore café, Read ’Em and Eat.
Read ’Em and Eat is known for its delicious breakfast and lunch treats, along with quite a colorful clientele. Augusta’s cousin and best friend Delia is painfully shy—which makes the news of her murder all the more shocking. Sassy wants to help any way she can. But Augusta wants Delia’s killer found—and she’s not taking no for an answer.
Includes a buttermilk pie recipe! (publisher)
