Cappachinos, Cupcakes, and a Corpse is a book by harper lin. It is the first book in A Cape bay Cafe Mystery series. Francesca just moved back to Cape bay, because her mother had died. She left her job in new york, and took over her mother’s cafe. One day, when she was walking home early from work, she took a shortcut, and came across her neighbor’s corpse. At first, she did not even know he was dead, but when she came closer to him, she realised and quickly called the police. The man’s son, Mateo, was very upset and sorrowful. He was also Fran’s childhood friend, and she decided to help him. After falsely acusing someone, the case got even more dangerous, and it was clear that someone was after her and Mateo. This book was filled with mystery and suspense, and I enjoyed reading it.
