When murder trends too close to home, social media influencer Coco Cline will have to swipe through a sea of trolls to tag a killer.
After cracking her first case, Cordelia "Coco" Cline's life is finally getting back to normal—or as normal as life can be when you have over three million followers online. With a thriving business, a devoted boyfriend, and her two besties living right up the street, Coco is set to have the most fun summer of her life until Larry and Rosalynn Dunmer move into the condo next door.
Coco and her friends do their best to avoid the confrontational duo, but when a party at a swanky new wine bar brings everyone together, things become less than neighborly faster than a celebrity-themed hashtag goes viral. Larry levels some super shady threats toward Coco and her BFF Jasper, which could have dire consequences for their multimedia empires. Just as Coco begins to wonder if she'll have to spend the rest of the summer looking over her shoulder, she gets a shocking request from police. As part of her PR gig with the Central Shores PD, they need her to come to the beach and keep the public at bay. A body has washed ashore.
Thinking a poor swimmer drowned just before the Salute to Summer festival kicks off, Coco arrives to find Larry Dunmer, dead with a corkscrew sticking out of his neck. What's even more unbelievable is that Jasper quickly shoots to the top of Chief McInnis's suspect list. In full-on panic mode, Coco decides to use her tech-savvy sleuthing skills to clear her best friend's name before his rep is ruined. She soon discovers that Larry made quite a few enemies during his very short stay in town. But who hated him enough to kill him?
Return to the beaches of Central Shores as Coco Cline and her squad assemble to catch a killer before they get canceled…permanently.

Greetings you guys! Welcome to our stop on the blog tour for #TagMe for Murder by the gorgeous Sarah E. Burr. What a fun, trendy and very hip book this was. I actually feel like writing this whole review in hashtags:
#newrelease #cozymystery #whodunnit #trending #CentralShores #Delaware #CoA #WMTG #CoastalTown #vic #badneighbours #goodfriends #CentralShoresPD #influencer #winebar #vine #lifestyleblogger
Ha, I can actually still continue with those. You know what’s rather ironic? You actually get a very good idea what this book is all about from just following the hashtags!
#TagMe for Murder is the second instalment in the Trending Topic Mystery series. Although this one was easy enough to follow, I think the reader will have a better understanding of the dynamics between the friends and their various background stories by reading the first one.
Meet 28-year-old influencer and celebrity blogger Coco Cline, who has started her own social media consulting firm in her hometown of Central Shores, Delaware. Her new clients, Sean and Olivia Chen, are ten days away from the grand opening of their specialty consignment shop when Coco stumbles across their store clerk Stacy dead behind the register.
Worried that a cloud of suspicion will ruin their chances of a successful business launch, the Chens ask Coco to work alongside the inexperienced Central Shores police force to speed up the investigation. Using her celebrity status and social media savviness, Coco realizes Stacy’s seemingly ordinary life was all an act.
Following a trail of cryptic online posts, confusing timelines, and muddied gossip, Coco and her friends discover Stacy’s questionable relationships just might be the reason for her untimely demise. Murder is about to go viral in #FollowMe for Murder, Book One in the Trending Topic Mysteries.
Coco, our popular social media influencer and lifestyle blogger heroine, does PR work for the local PD and once again, she finds herself in the middle of a murder investigation. If one of your best friends are suspect #1, of course you are going to use your influences to play amateur sleuth. Especially if the murder victim is the type of guy you really don’t mind seeing the last of.
#TagMe for Murder is a fun-filled cozy mystery and will be a welcome addition to your beach bag reads for this summer.
Thank you to Great Escapes Blog Tours for inviting us along for this tour and for providing us with a copy of the book. Much appreciated!
