COZY MYSTERY REVIEW – The Malt in Our Stars by Sarah Fox

“Ever since moving to Shady Creek, I’d developed a habit of getting wrapped up in murder investigations.”

Oh, how I love this series! We meet back up with Sadie, owner of The Inkwell, who is getting ready to host one of her favorite authors for a book event. Shockingly (or not…) the author’s assistant ends up dead at Shady Creek Manor (a local inn with a storied past), and Sadie can’t help but get involved in trying to solve the murder.

Shady Creek is also welcoming a TV crew to town, who will be doing a feature on the local brewery (and including The Inkwell briefly as well!) AND they’re trying to get ready for their annual May Day festivities, which culminate in an elegant masquerade ball that’s set to take place at, you guessed it, the scene of the murder.

This book has it all – a hidden treasure that may or may not exist, precocious townspeople who can’t help but stick their nose in other people’s business, a dreamy love interest (swoon!) and, of course, drinks and food items that have bookish pun names.

Thank you Sarah Fox for sending me an ARC of this book!
