Southern Double Cross by Caroline Fardig is an exciting, keep you on the edge of your seat, cozy mystery. This is the 3rd book in the A Southern B &B Mystery series, but it can be read as a standalone.
The story follows Quinn as she coordinates a charity event at her families B&B. Everything is going well until her friend, Pepper, calls and tells her someone has died, and her brother is the main suspect. Pepper needs Quinn's amateur sleuth skills to prove her brother’s innocence.
I have read the other novels in this series and they never disappoint. I love a good cozy mystery with plenty of plot twists. This story has that and more. The author does a wonderful job at keeping you on the edge of your seat and wanting more. The story is exciting, and you feel like you are right along with Quinn solving the murder.
The characters introduced in this series are Well written and relatable. I find that sometimes in cozy mystery stories there are too many suspects and it can leave your brain a bit exhausted. Ms. Fardig does a nice job at not "info dumping" details, and the reader won’t need to get out a notepad just to keep everything straight.
I would give this novel 5 out of 5 stars. I know this isn't published by Hallmark, but if you like stories from their mystery series, this one is for you!
