The Devil Drinks Coffee by Destiny Ford
Kate Saxee has returned to her hometown of Branson Falls, Utah to take the job of editor of The Tribune. Being a small rural farming community, Branson Falls never has a lot of newsworthy happenings. If it wasn't for Kate's accident prone mother, there might not be any news to report. Until the body of a girl is found in the local lake.
Kate launches her own investigation in regards to the cause of death and in the process, meets a handsome and mysterious local, becomes reaquainted with an old high school crush, and becomes the center of innumerable threads of gossip. With the help of the mysterious local and a desire to find out the truth, Kate solves the mystery behind the girl's death.
The Devil Drinks Coffe is a fun read. Angela Corbett has written a book that rivals those of Janet Evanovich. Branson Falls is a typical small rural town with a variety of characters that you love to hate - all very real. The plot moves along well with no slow spots. The perfect murder mystery with a hint of romance.
