Publisher Description

Conspiracy, suspects, bedlam, and murder!

"My name is Lemon Layne, and if asked to describe myself, like maybe on a dating site (which is never gonna happen), I'd have to go with best convenience store/barbecue joint owner in the Pacific Northwest.

I live in the tiny tourist town of Fig Harbor, Washington with my adorably neurotic best friend, Coco Belinski, my a-little-left- of-center (read totally out there) mom, May, and my troublemaking pet monkey, Jessica Fletcher. Oh, and last but certainly not least, I'm a dyed-in-the-wool amateur sleuth.

Yep. I'm literally incapable of resisting a good mystery. No matter how great or small, I love to stick my nose into...er, help solve a crime. From the mysterious disappearance of Ho Hos in my store, to a lost piece of jewelry, I'm always ready to put on my Sherlock Holmes cap (I really do have one. Got it when I was eight).

When I find my mother's ex-boyfriend murdered in our convenience store bathroom with a piece of his skull missing, and my mom's a suspect in a murder investigation, my mystery solving goes from zero to a hundred.

To really make matters worse, the town's local conspiracy theorist and official doomsday prepper, Cappie somehow finds out the victim isn't just missing a piece of his skull--he's missing a piece of his brain! And that's when off the wall Cappie starts spreading word the zombie apocalypse has officially arrived in our tiny burg.

Total chaos ensues and I have to pick my way through everything from weekend warrior zombie hunters to medical mysteries in order to catch a killer!"

Zombies? Really? Not real, right?

Mystery with Humor

What an excellent story! You have characters with unusual names such as Lemon, Justice, Coco to name a few. The story takes places in a small town but still you have interesting characters to meet. I like the whole spider monkey , Jessica Fletcher, who is very protective. The characters are like a small family because of the small town. But you have the modern internet and some unusual side stories. Read and enjoy as Lemon is a very different and unusual person/ detective!

Kind of dumb

You would assume the characters were around 16 with the silly banter, not mid 30's. Their ridiculous constant banter becomes incessantly annoying. I wouldn't recommend this book.
