Amy Flowers owns and runs a cafe and loves every minute of it. Everything, that is, except for an obnoxious businessman who continually tries to buy her cafe. And when he drops dead in the cafe eating her food, Amy realizes she might be in big trouble. This entertaining cozy has a lot going for it. Interesting characters, secondary plot lines, intriguing mystery, and a bit of romance all combine for a great story. ( )

One thing about reading this book: it had my stomach growling from cover to cover. All of the Southern comfort food Amy Flowers was cooking up made me so hungry.

Winter Garden, Virginia, is a charming small town, and Amy owns the popular Down South Café there. Once again, Amy is thrown into a murder mystery when another suspicious death occurs in the restaurant, and this time the victim is her adversary George Lincoln, director of the Chamber of Commerce.

This delightful cozy is part mystery, part family drama, and even a little romance, though luckily the investigation never gets lost in the drama — instead, they compliment each other. The mystery was well plotted and introduced several possible anti-George suspects.

SILENCE OF THE JAMS is a fun summer-themed cozy mystery full of yummy food and great characters. Enjoyed!

Disclosure: I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. ( )

First I sure wished I was part of Amy Flowers family, she could whip up a delicious meal in seconds, or was planning another.
Miss Amy is kind to everyone including grumpy George Lincoln, but she sure didn’t expect him to drop dead in her Café. Thus a new mystery is born and as we go through the list of suspects, I kept changing my mind, and when you think you are sure, guess again.
There is a bit of sweet romance here, and an abundance of family, and everyone seems to be welcome at the dinner table.
As we go about trying to find out who killed George, we become immersed in the daily life of this Southern Town, and get to know just about everyone, some are better off not knowing.
Does Amy have to kind of a heart for her own good, or will she learn who was responsible and then put her own life in jeopardy.
I want to read more by this author, and keep up with her darling pets and family. There are some unanswered personal questions here, and I want to find out. I see there are two other books in this series, and they are now on my must read list. Enjoy!
I received this book through Great Escapes Book Tour, and was not required to give a positive review. ( )

Disclaimer: I received a copy of the book from the publisher for review.

This is a typical cozy mystery with nothing to distinguish it from others of its ilk. If you like these sort of gossipy what everyone is wearing who is dating whom what people are cooking and eating stories, you'll like this one. ( )

I didn't get to read the first book in this series but it didn't stop me from enjoying this second addition. The writing is so good it kept me glued to the book. The author has a great way of developing her characters with ease. I loved the setting and could find myself sitting at one of the tables enjoying the special of the day. Amy would be busy preparing her delicious cuisine while Jackie scrambled to get orders out. It would be a fun place to gather with friends and enjoy the delicious aroma that filled the cafe.

Amy is really busy in the cafe lately and hardly has time to visit with the customers. To her dismay in walks George Lincoln. He is the president of the Chamber of Commerce and is not very friendly. He seems to be pushy and intimidating. George has had his sight on Amy's cafe for some time. His plan is to tear down the cafe and build a B&B. Amy is having none of this and is really not in the mood for him this morning. After he is severed breakfast he starts talking to Dr.Kent. A commotion is heard as George falls to the ground. It doesn't look good for poor old George. Can you imagine eating at a cafe and suddenly a customer falls dead?

George's death raises suspicion when it is discovered that someone may have poisoned him. He had plenty of enemies and for some reason he had secret files on people in the town. What was George doing with these files? Did he know something that got him killed? The mystery is well written and I had a hard time figuring out who the killer was. It was fun reading about the different townspeople and to me they were all on my suspect list. I was very surprised when the killer was revealed and thought the author did a brilliant job of keeping readers guessing.

I really enjoyed getting to know more about Amy's family and applaud the author for writing about a subject that is hard to have a family member go through. It was written with sensitivity and I loved how the author gave details that were helpful and encouraging . I can't forget about Aunt Bess. She is quirky and funny and most definitely a hand full. She lightened up the story with her shenanigans and I loved her compassion for her family and friends. I will be looking forward to the next book in this series. I'm sure as you read the story you found yourself getting hungry with all the wonderful dishes being served up at the cafe. As a bonus the author has included several amazing recipes at the end of the book. I know what I'm having for dinner tomorrow.

I received a copy of this book from The Great Escapes Book Tour. The review is my own opinion. ( )
