A Fresh Brew
Series: Hill Country Mysteries, Book 1
Welcome to Aconite Cafe, where dragons, coffee, and snark, are today’s special.
Hailey Morton has just become the sole owner of Aconite Cafe. Upon her aunt’s death, Hailey also inherited her cat.
Only Azure is no cat. He is actually a dragon, and Hailey has just inherited the position of Dragon Protector alongside the deed to the cafe.
If her world turning upside down wasn’t enough, Azure is convinced Hailey’s aunt was actually murdered. The sheriff and his deputy are oblivious, which means it’s up to her to solve the mystery. All while running the cafe.
Will Hailey bring her aunt’s murderer to justice? Can she learn to run Aconite Cafe? Does she have what it takes to be a Dragon Protector?
A Fresh Brew is the first book in the Hill Country Mysteries series of full-length, snarky, dragon cozy mystery novels.
An adorable and amusing beginning to a series. Great characters who I feel like I know already. I love Azure and his sass! I can usually figure out the “whodunit” before it’s revealed, but this time I had a little trouble and that was great. I love being surprised. Can’t wait to read the next book!
A great beginning to a new series. Hailey just lost her great Aunt Tona, but she inherited her coffee shop in a small town. As if that wasn’t enough she also got a snarky cat named Azure in the deal as well. But things are not what they seem in the little town of Marble Falls.
I thoroughly enjoyed meeting Hailey and Azure along with the other characters in town. I would highly recommend this book, and I can’t wait to see what comes next in the series.
