Truffles and Tragedy: A Down South Cafe Mystery Book
by Gayle Leeson
Author Gayle Leeson gives the reader some great characters and a great plot/storyline. I enjoyed meeting Amy. I love a book with likable characters and Amy is one.

~A Wytch’s Book Review Blog
The author does a great job disguising the murderer and the motive along with everything else related to the mystery.
Full of tension and devious twists, maybe even some alien intervention, the whole story mixes into a delicious concoction.
I have been in love with this series since book one and it just keeps getting better . . . A total must-read series for fans of cozies with a culinary theme. I totally loved it so I give it 5/5 stars
~Books a Plenty Book Reviews
Despite the fact that a man was murdered, I still managed to smile most of the way through the book (especially when Aunt Bess was up to her usual feisty antics). Amy and crew are fabulous as always, and the mystery was very well-plotted and layered.

I do love these characters . . . Homer is still my favorite. His Heroes of the Day are always inspiring and uplifting.
~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book
The characters who work at Amy’s Down Home Cafe are very close, like family. I find that to be endearing . . . When the reveal of the killer took place, I was surprised as it was not what I expected.
~Melina’s Book Blog
The mystery was well plotted and there were enough clues to sift through and suspects to consider. There were some red herrings thrown in and it was not easily solved. I did not know who the murder was until it was revealed at the end.

Down South Cafe owner Amy Flowers learns her chocolate truffles might not be the only things her patrons find “out of this world.”
When her cousin, Jackie, asks her to give a presentation to her online class, Amy thinks all she has to worry about is speaking before a group. But then the nitpicky professor collapses. He has been murdered, and hot-tempered Jackie is the prime suspect.

Certain the real killer is setting Jackie up, will Amy be able to outwit the killer and save her cousin?
