Book list Sassy Cabot and Bridget Mayfield are trying to keep their bookstore and cafe, called Read 'Em and Eat, going in Fort Myers Beach, Florida, with clever literary-themed foods and book clubs. Then one of a pair of cousins who attend the book clubs is murdered, and the grieving cousin Augusta asks Sassy to find the killer. Victim Delia was rumored to own an island off the Gulf Coast, and developers had been hounding her to sell. Wreckers diving for treasure also want that land. Sassy, Bridget, and many of their customers and neighbors all chip in on the effort to solve the case. Moran effectively mixes sunken treasure with the bookstore ambience in this thoroughly cozy series debut.--Alessio, Amy Copyright 2014 Booklist
