New Synopsis Smugglers and Scones

Pippa Winterbourne runs Moorehaven, the Oregon Coast’s quirkiest bed-and-breakfast and former home of world-famous mystery writer, A. Raymond Moore. Guests come there to write their own crime novels.

When a real-life murder takes a local’s life and washes a handsome boat pilot into her arms, Pippa is yanked into a deadly plot of her own. A tangle of secrets crashes past into present, and Pippa must uncover clues dating back to Seacrest’s Prohibition days, including a secret Moore himself hid from the world.

Juggling her book-writing guests, small-town intrigues, secret club agendas, and a possibly fatal attraction, Pippa must sort fact from fiction to know who to trust before a desperate killer claims a final revenge nearly a century in the making.

New Review

Smugglers and Scones by Morgan C. Talbot is a wonderful new mystery that introduces us to a special B&B in Seacrest on the Oregon coast, full of different characters.

A unique story with romance, murder and humour. This lovely book set in Oregon, which the author describes as rocky coastlines and cliffs, along with the varied characters drew me in to read more.

Pippa the main character sounds like my kind of girl, we seen her running the B&B, the baking of scones – which sound mouth watering (I will definitely be trying the recipe from the book), and taking the writers under her wing. She finds herself rescuing and falling head over heels for Lake.

The story is believable, and I enjoyed the history of the prohibition and how it played a part in the tale, adding to the plot.

The different characters come into their own during the book and it’s an easy read, flowing naturally throughout the book. There is a overly tease of who done it, with the secret being kept until the end.

I would definitely recommend Smugglers and Scones, well done Morgan C. Talbot for a good read, and I look forward to read more from this author.
