Publisher's Summary

Summer tourist season is winding down, but the Cape Bay police find a dead body in the alley beside Mary Ellen's Souvenirs and Gifts. Police rule it a suicide, but Francesca Amaro knows it's murder. Who would buy a bag of souvenirs, including a box of delicious marzipan, only to commit suicide moments later?

Even though the police tell her to stay out of the case, Fran is too curious not to investigate, even though she's running a busy and popular cafe.

Another great addition

Harper Lin does a wonderful job crafting enjoyable cozy mysteries, and this one is no exception. Marguerite Gaven brings the characters to life with their own voices.

Not much of a mystery: I'm totally unimpressed

(As posted in GoodReads)
Not much of a mystery. Apparently this is the third in a series of which I have not listened to/read, nor do I plan on doing so. Not much to it, and it doesn't interest or incentivize me.

Very Enjoyable!

Where does Margaritas, Marzipan, and Murder rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is the 4th book I've read & 3rd I've read in this series. I'd say each new book in the series becomes my #1 book.

What did you like best about this story?

I always enjoy new characters introduced who interact with the regulars. It makes a good mix.

Have you listened to any of Marguerite Gavin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

So far I've only listened to Marguerite in this series and she always gives a 5 star performance. Very gifted & talented.
