Publisher's Summary

When the owner of Polly's Cake Shop announces her retirement, the Fethering residents start to worry about the loss of this popular amenity. Alarmed by rumours that the café might become a Starbucks, a group clubs together to form an action committee.

The plan is that Polly's should become a community venture managed and run by volunteers from the village. Roped in to help, Jude finds the committee meetings fraught with petty power struggles, clashing personalities and monstrous egos.

Matters take a turn for the worse when she and Carole come across a badly decomposed body on Fethering beach - and uncover a link to Polly's.

    "Okay"

    This is the 17th story of the series and I have enjoyed each book. Jude and Carole make a good investigative team. They are very intelligent women who complement each other well. However, I found this book a bit lacking. It lacked the humor that has been in the books of the past, as well as, more interaction between Carole and Jude. Carole was off dealing with her son for a good portion of the book. The time between Jude and Carole felt rushed and underdeveloped. It's still an okay book and I will read the next one.
