The Inn at Holiday Bay: Poison in the Pudding Paperback – October 30, 2021
Enhance your purchase
After suffering a personal tragedy Abby Sullivan buys a huge old seaside mansion she has never even seen, packs up her life in San Francisco, and moves to Holiday Bay Maine, where she is adopted, quite against her will, by a huge Maine Coon Cat named Rufus, a drifter with her own tragic past named Georgia, and a giant dog with an inferiority complex named Ramos. What Abby thought she needed was alone time to heal. What she ended up with was, an inn she never knew she wanted, a cat she couldn't seem to convince to leave, and a new family she'd never be able to live without.
In book 17 in the series, Abby joins Colt as he investigates the death of a local man who died after eating pudding dosed with poison during a community dinner. Was the man targeted or was the poison in the pudding a random act set into motion by a madman intent on murder?
Meanwhile, Thanksgiving is only a few days away and several guests who've visited the inn in the past return to spend the holiday with Abby, Georgia, and the rest of the Inn at Holiday Bay family. In addition to the return cast, a couple is looking for their runaway granddaughter and another is trying to make the best of things after tragedy struck his family.

I love the setting and characters. Friendships are easily formed when guests check in, several later relocating to the area.
This book will appeal to fans of the television series, Murder She Baked, based on books by Joanne Fluke. The mayor, in particular, reminded me of that series.
Besides a terrible tragedy for the town, the Inn family is concerned when one of their own may be forced to move far away. They must remain strong and hope for the best.
As always, when guests check in at the Inn, there is another mystery or mission to follow through on.
A warm, family friendly cozy read to enjoy.
Once again, Kathi Daley has woven the tales of residents and guests of the Inn at Holiday Bay into a can't put it down plot with twists and turns. With each book in the series, I'm more invested in the lives and characters that come together at the Inn. Read this series from Book One on and don't be disappointed!
Very enjoyable story, but I thought the mystery was too easy to figure out. Even with that minor detail, I am a fan of this series.

When the Mayor dies suddenly, Abby's boyfriend local policeofficer Colt is heading up the investigation, did someone murder him?
I really enjoyed the book but felt it was a little short and rushed this time, but it didn't stop my enjoyment of the book. Books are best read in order of publication to preserve continuity of the characters. Can't wait for the next book to be released.
And the added bonus is that of the Christmas season.
The characters as the series progresses are what makes the atmosphere. A good plot and a side story too .
Makes you want to be there at the hotel .
