Title: Murder on Wheels
Author: Lynn Cahoon
Publisher: Lyrical Underground
Genre: Cozy Mystery
The food truck craze has reached the charming coastal town of South Cove, California, but before Jill Gardner—owner of Coffee, Books, and More—can sample the eats, she has to shift gears and put the brakes on a killer . . .
Now that Kacey Austin has got her new gluten-free dessert truck up and running, there’s no curbing her enthusiasm—not even when someone vandalizes the vehicle and steals her recipes. But when Kacey turns up dead on the beach and Jill’s best friend Sadie becomes the prime suspect, Jill needs to step on it to serve the real killer some just desserts.
I received a free copy of the ebook for an honest review.
Murder on Wheels is a fun mystery, which I always enjoy. This is the first Tourist Trap Mystery that I’ve read but Lynn Cahoon does a great job of describing South Cove and all of its townspeople. This is definitely a stand alone book, but I hope to have time to go back and read the rest of the series.
Jill Gardner seems to always end up in the middle of a mystery…or at least she puts herself in the middle. She has a good relationship with her detective boyfriend but he, understandably, gets a little annoyed when she starts snooping. She promises that she won’t snoop when Kacey Austin is found dead on the beach, but they both know that she just can’t help herself.
I recommend Murder on Wheels for anyone who enjoys a quick, fun read. Although predictable, it was still definitely worth my time.

I love happy endings. My stories are all about life in small town America and building the family that you deserve. You know, the people who love you unconditionally – even when you’re less than perfect.
Personal stuff? I’m a seven-year breast cancer survivor. I’m married to my own hero who shaved his shoulder length hair when I lost mine during chemo. I’m the proud mom of a computer engineer (although I don’t know what that means.) And I have four fur babies.
I’m an active member of MORWA, my local RWA chapter.
My debut was THE BULL RIDER’S BROTHER released June 4th, 2012 from Crimson Romance. Cowboys aren’t easy to love—but they sure are easy on the eyes. I bet you’ve felt the same way my heroine Lizzie has, at least once or twice. Since that time, THE BULL RIDER’S MANAGER, came to your favorite digital store. If flying was hell, waiting to fly was purgatory. Both are available in print as well as digital. And the long awaited bull rider story is finally out and available. Check out THE BULL RIDER’S KEEPER!

I’ve come a long way from the little girl on the school bus who used to cut out pictures from Teen Beat to illustrate my tales of love and loss. And yet, not so far.
So pull up a chair, pour a cup of coffee, and let’s chat about writing, love, life, and the pesky things that get in the way of our goals and dreams.
