Kicked to the Curb by Joanna Campbell Slan. This is book 2 in the series, I wrote about book 3 at the beginning of the month (All Washed Up). In this book, Cara is finally making a go of it with her store in Florida, she has a few employees and some friends, but then she discovers that she had an older sister that had been adopted and was now jealous and determined to undermine everything that Cara does.
From Amazon “Cara Mia Delgatto’s cup runneth over with worries. Her ex-husband is refusing to pay their son’s college tuition, her evil sister is pulling mean pranks, and her old boyfriend has broken her heart. And that’s just the personal stuff. She’s also concerned about keeping the cash register ringing at The Treasure Chest, her retail store specializing in upcycled, recycled, and repurposed décor items with a coastal theme. The media event that Cara plans turns nasty when reporter Kathy Simmons threatens to share unsavory details from the shopkeeper’s past. Things get really dicey when Kathy mysteriously disappears. Cara’s other problems seem trivial in comparison to…a murder investigation!”
Will Cara be able to overcome all of the hardships and come out on top?
