Kernel of Truth by Kristi Abbott A Sweet New Series!

This week I was delighted to get an ARC of Kernel of Truth from Kristi Abbott. This first in series is about a gourmet popcorn shop, in a small sea side town, is out March 1, 2016. Like many cozies about main street businesses I found this one particularly endearing. A story of home coming, true friendship, finding yourself by completely getting lost and turning tail and running home.
Like all wonderful cozies the lovable Sprocket Poodle adds humor, mystery and that unmistakable bond between cozy sleuth and beast!
"An all-new Popcorn Shop Mystery bursts on the scene, featuring gourmet popcorn entrepreneur Rebecca Anderson and her poodle Sprocket. Opening a gourmet popcorn shop was never on Rebecca Anderson s bucket list. But after a failed marriage to a celebrity chef, she s ready for her life to open up and expand. She has returned to her hometown of Grand Lake, Ohio, with her popcorn-loving poodle Sprocket to start a new business naturally called POPS. As a delicious bonus, Cordelia Coco Bittles, a close family friend who has always been like a grandmother to Rebecca, owns the chocolate shop next door, and the two are thinking of combining their businesses. But when Coco s niece, Alice, discovers her on the floor of her chocolate shop, those dreams go up in smoke. The local sheriff thinks Coco was the victim of a robbery gone wrong, but Rebecca isn t so sure. As suspects start popping up all over, Rebecca is determined to turn up the heat and bring the killer to justice in a jiffy!"
