Murder in Real Time by Julie Anne Lindsey

I didn't read the first two books in this series but it wasn't absolutely necessary. It might've helped a little but I didn't feel like I was missing any of the story.
Why grab this book? The cover reminded me of Ellery Adams' books and I like those so...
Patience Price lives in a tourist town. Living in one myself, I really appreciated the description, especially the relief that comes at the end of the season. I'm a little doubtful about the number of food trucks, but since an actual number was never mentioned, it might have been three or so and that could work.
But the mayor of the town doesn't like down time. He wants more profit for his people. So he allows a reality show to film on the island. Which turns out to be a problem when Patience's boyfriend rolls back into town and discovers two of the cast members dead in his normal room.
This sets off a chain of events where (refreshingly) the heroine doesn't want to get involved. She's been involved in two murders recently (maybe more, this is the third book) and just wants some down time. But when shots start flying at both her and her friends, she gets reluctantly pulled in to investigating.
This book came out yesterday and I would recommend giving it a chance.
