Review: Well Read, Then Dead by Terrie Farley Moran

Sassy and Bridgy own Read 'Em and Eat - a cozy cafe and bookstore in Fort Myers Beach, Florida.  Their customers come for the food and the book discussions.  They sit at themed tables (Emily Dickinson, Dr. Seuss  etc.. covered in quotes and fun).  Club members can get vocal and rowdy in their heated discussions.  When one of their members is murdered, her cousin and best friend Augusta doesn't want sympathy - she wants Sassy to find out what happened to Delia!

Rumors of sunken treasure and the engrossing history of the Ten Thousand Islands add complexity to the investigation.

I really enjoyed the setting and colorful characters in the story. I would love a cafe like that to hang out in and fun people to talk books with in such a place.
