Sorry to say how disappointing I found this.

I normally like to support other writers, but...this book badly needed proofing and editing. Things like "off-sight" instead of "off-site," "priming the well" instead of "priming the pump"--I really get bothered by people screwing up idioms, unless they've made the character who says it a particularly dim bulb on purpose. I wish I could say more good about the story line and the characters, but the main character owning/running a cafe when she can't cook just really does not work for me at all. I don't buy that the police would consider someone a suspect because a con man tried to blackmail him, especially with the attempt in this case. So from the start, I couldn't really enjoy it. A. R. Winters, I wanted to like your book and support your effort, but I just can't. I really am sorry. Please get a good proofreader and editor. It will be money well spent and help move your writing up quite a bit. most of my concerns could have been easily fixed.
