Honey-Baked Homicide by Gayle Leeson-A Great Escapes Tour-Book Review/Giveaway

About the book 
The owner of a delightful Southern café tastes the sharp sting of suspicion in this delectable comfort food mystery . . .
It’s fall in Winter Garden, Virginia, and business at Amy Flowers’ Down South Café has never been better. So when struggling beekeeper Stuart Landon asks Amy to sell some of his honey, she’s happy to help. The jars of honey are a sweet success, but their partnership is cut short when Amy discovers Landon’s body outside the café early one morning.
As Amy tries to figure out who could possibly have wanted to harm the unassuming beekeeper, she discovers an ever-expanding list of suspects—and they’re all buzzing mad. She’ll have to use all of her skills—and her Southern charm—to find her way out of this sticky situation…
And others are saying 
I can’t ask for a better mystery to read on the weekend, than one by Gayle. Gayle never leaves a reader hanging she leaves them wanting more from this series.
~Bibliophile Reviews
This book has strong characters that are easy to love (especially Homer with his hero of the day quotes), lots of details to hook the reader, and the development of a nice smooth ride until we hit the finale upset because it is the last page. I do believe I am falling in love with this series . . .
~Books a Plenty Book Reviews
HONEY-BAKED HOMICIDE, the third book in Gayle Leeson’s Down South Café Mystery series is an entertaining read that combines both a twisty-turvey murder plot along with a cornucopia of colorful characters.

~Community Bookstop
I can’t say enough how much I love this cozy mystery series. In fact, the Down South Cafe books are one of my go-to series in this genre. They are clean, entertaining, well-plotted and full of yummy food.

And I thought 
A delightful and charming read.  Honey Baked Homicide is a keeper.   

Winter Garden Valley is filled with fun and quirky characters that appear daily to satisfy their hunger at the Southern Cafe. 

Amy is surrounded with fun friends and patrons from the quirky
Hector that has a penchant for making the day better with a quote to the hilarious Dilly who comes by everyday for lunch or breakfast and must have a biscuit for her pet raccoon. 

I enjoyed the setting and was delighted that the author included 
recipes at the end. 

The mystery plot is interesting and takes the reader on a twisty 
turny ride.   

I had an idea who did the deed but was a little surprised along with Amy and the others when the actual villain was uncovered.  

I enjoyed my visit to the Southern Cafe and look forward to reading more in this series. 

I received a complimentary copy.
