Welcome to the Barks & Beans Cafe, a quaint place where folks pet shelter dogs while enjoying a cup of java…and where murder sometimes pays a visit.

With the one-year anniversary of the now-successful Barks & Beans Cafe approaching, siblings Macy and Bo Hatfield set up an iced coffee booth at the state fair. Taking a break from brewing, Macy bumps into Carolina, a long-lost childhood friend who’s now sitting pretty as a country superstar. Macy tries not to fangirl too hard when her old friend extends an invitation to meet the rest of the Carolina Crush band before their opening show.

But when Carolina falls victim to not one, but two near-death experiences, Macy takes it upon herself to find out who has it in for her old friend. Fortified with plenty of roasted corn, cinnamon rolls, and her brother’s signature iced maple latte, Macy takes to the Ferris wheel to get the lay of the land from the air. She discovers too late that this year’s fair isn’t all fun and games…but she’s already locked in for the ride.

Join siblings Macy and Bo Hatfield as they sniff out crimes in their hometown…with plenty of dogs along for the ride! The Barks & Beans Cafe cozy mystery series features a small town, an amateur sleuth, and no swearing or graphic scenes.

The Barks & Beans Cafe cozy mystery series in order:
Book 1: No Filter *my review*
Book 2: Iced Over 
Book 3: Fair Trade


I somehow missed reading book 2 Iced Over, so I was glad to be given the chance to read this instalment on the Barks & Bean Cafe cozy mystery series, I loved book one so much!

Fair Trade was a quick read and once again Macy finds herself caught up in not one but two mysteries that are ultimately connected. When her childhood friend and lead singer of Carolina Crush is in area to headline the state fair she reconnects with her and is invited to dinner with the band,  only the band are less than receptive of Macy but she puts it down to “fame” Carolina ends you in the hospital and Macy realised that she has likely been poisoned! I really loved Caroline and hoped upon hope that she wasn’t going end up dead, thankful she didn’t but another band member does and the twist involving that I did not see coming!

The ever lovable great dale Coal is ever present in this story just like the last as well as few other fluffy additions. I am loving this series and can’t wait to read more from the Barks & Bean Cafe.
