A Recipe for Murder: 5 families living on Peregrine Circle, 1 flowered curtain tieback, 1 missing child, 1 body in the field. Mix with a long list of suspects and top with two very different detectives. Increase heat until only the truth remains.
Cooking aficionado turned amateur detective Sadie Hoffmiller tries to solve the murder of Anne Lemmon, her beautiful young neighbor–a single mother who was mysteriously killed while a lemon tart was baking in her oven. At the heart of Sadie’s search is the woman’s missing two year-old son, Trevor. Whoever took the child must be the murderer, but Sadie is certain that the police are looking at all the wrong suspects—including her!
Armed with a handful of her very best culinary masterpieces, Sadie is determined to bake her way to proving her innocence, rescuing Trevor, and finding out exactly who had a motive for murder.
Another culinary mystery that is sure to please “cozy” murder mystery readers.
I liked it! In fact I think I liked it better than most of Josie’s other books and I have to admit I couldn’t figure out “whodoneit” until the end.
I enjoyed this book. Sadie felt like a real person and I loved her obsession with all things homemaking.
Josi kept me guessing until the end.
Fun book with great recipes included.
I recommend it.
