About Vinyl Resting Place
When Juni Jessup and her sisters Tansy and Maggie put all their beans in one basket to open Sip & Spin Records, a record-slash-coffee shop in Cedar River, Texas, they knew there could be some scratches on the track, but no one was expecting to find a body deader than disco in the supply closet.
Family is everything to the Jessups, so when their uncle is arrested by Juni’s heartbreaking ex on suspicion of murder, the sisters don’t skip a beat putting Sip & Spin up for bail collateral. But their tune changes abruptly when Uncle Calvin disappears, leaving them in a grind. With their uncle’s freedom and the future of their small business on the line, it’s up to Juni and her sisters to get in the groove and figure out whodunit before the killer’s trail—and the coffee—goes cold.
My thoughts about Vinyl Resting Place
VINYL RESTING PLACE has such a fun, chart-topping premise – I need to be able to visit Sip and Spin Records for one of Juni’s punny coffee creations, good music, and Daffy the store cat. I loved the small-town Texas vibes – where everyone knows everyone in your family and all of their business.
It’s the first in a series so you get characters’ backstories that possibly set up future books. Like Juni’s past romance with Beau, the police detective. And then there’s potential friends to lovers with her old bestie Teddy. Possible love triangle?!
The sisters are a fun group with sibling teasing and banter and I love their family-first vibe. There’s humor – hello, glitter bomb! And some twisty mysteries and secrets for Juni to puzzle out.
Vinyl Resting Place is a perfect cozy read for music, coffee, sibling love, or practical joke fans.
