Grand Openings Can Be Murder by Amber Royer

Felicity has come back home after her husband's death.  She's going to run a chocolate shop they had planned but in her hometown where she has friends.  She never expected to find one of her employees dead...

BooksGoSocial and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published February 2nd.

She's shocked to find out the detective is her boyfriend from high school.  They act like they are walking on eggs when they are around each other.  He even accuses her of murder.

She decides to figure out who the murderer is so she can get that accusation stopped.  She finds a man who was a bodyguard and hires him to help keep her safe.

They arrest a friend of hers (and an employee).  She can't believe she did it.  And then someone is in her home and shoots at the purse she threw back down the hall.  

She keeps checking all the people who knew the victim.  She needs her bodyguard now.

It comes down to a dramatic ending.  I was surprised by who the killer was...
