This is book 6 in the Hope Herring cozy mystery series by USA TODAY Bestselling Author J.A. Whiting and Nell McCarthy.
Hope Herring is running the Butter Up Bakery while the owner is on vacation in Hawaii. The Fourth of July is fast approaching and one night, as Hope and her daughter are walking home after closing the bakery, something unexpected happens when they pass a fireworks store. Her friend Detective Derrick Robinson has his hands full trying to solve the crime, but this time, Hope doesn’t want to get involved with the investigation. She’s too busy planning for the next academic year at the middle school where she teaches, searching for clues to her resident ghost’s hundred-year old murder, and continuing to look into the suspicious accident that took her husband’s life.
Despite her reluctance to figure out what happened at the fireworks store that night, will Hope uncover the criminal’s identity before he or she makes another deadly move ?
