A viral Books Grilling the Subject I gorged myself on this latest installment in the Cookbook Nook series by Daryl Wood Gerber. But it didn't fill me up; I want more! Our heroine Jenna Hart is hard at work getting her specialty bookstore ready for the Wild West Extravaganza in the charming Californian town of Crystal Cove. Quickly things turn deadly, and with no alibi AND an ax to grind against the victim, Jenna's father is the prime suspect. It's up to Jenna to clear her father's name and find out who really did the dirty deed. I love cozy mysteries like this: lots of subtle clues that keep you guessing, interesting and quirky characters, just the right amount of romance, and lots of yummy food! Rich and witty and light on the fluff, Grilling the Subject checks all my cozy boxes. It's full of detail and charm and suspense. This is my first trip to the charming Crystal Cove but it won't be my last. I usually read cozy series in order but I made an exception since I was lucky to win a copy of this book from the author (*Thank you, Daryl! Truly wonderful read!*) I'm glad I jumped head first into this series and now I want all the back story! In fact I've already ordered up the first book in the series, Final Sentence. I highly recommend this one to all cozy mystery fans or anyone looking for a good, tasty, satisfying read!
