Coffee, Beignets, and Murder (Book 4 - Sleepy Carter Mysteries) Scheduled Release: July 16, 2018
This is the 4th book in the Sleepy Carter Mystery Series. Beignets are a staple of the New Orleans community; which makes securing the title of "Best Beignets in New Orleans" a huge business accomplishment. During the height of the tourist season, four people (each person ate beignets at a different shop in the city) die after consuming the delicacy. Initially, the deaths seemed random, but the fourth death is labeled a homicide. Detective Lizzy Silverman gets the case and quickly realizes that trying to track down the source and reason behind the deaths is like trying to find a needle in a haystack. Lizzy and the New Orleans Police Department are stumped, but finding needles in haystacks is a specialty of her mentor, Sleepy Carter.
