One cold dead body……(Prices may vary)
Josie and her best friend, Brad, are next in line at Greenville’s famous pastrami-sandwich-producing hotspot–Danny’s Deli. Their highly anticipated lunch break turns stale when employee Gordy Fitzgerald’s body is found in the freezer.
Word soon surfaces that Gordy had been stabbed shortly before being found–and the weapon is missing. Locals are devastated by the discovery, and the amount of speculation on the killer’s identity is far greater than the holes on a block of Swiss cheese.
Who killed the beloved sandwich wizard?
Josie’s untamed curiosity is determined to answer just that.
Along the way, she has a few tasks at hand: maintaining a blog, coming to terms with her feelings for Tony, and keeping up with the shenanigans of her corgi, Petey.
All this, and finding a killer.
Shouldn’t be too hard. Living in a small town like Greenville, there’s no place anyone can hide.
Not even a murderer…right?
Josie is at it again. She falls into another murder investigation. Tony is not too happy neither is Brad. Josie and her buddy Brad are waiting in line at Danny’s Deli when Gordy is found murdered in the freezer. The weapon is not found and word spreads quickly. Again, Detective Evans is keeping an eye on Tony Santino but this time he had nothing to do with the murder.
Brad and Josie really get into some funny situations. They visit the old nursing home that Gordy’s mom died at. Was she helped? The grounds keeper tells them to get out and Brad tells her to book it. Another funny moment in the series. Brad and Josie together are a hoot and then Tony and Josie’s feelings are getting stronger.
So many twists make the series wonderful.
We find out in book one that Tony’s father is in prison but we soon learn he is out and keeping an eye on both Tony and Josie. Why? We will have to keep reading the books to find out.
I am looking forward to the next story.
