Description:

Former reality TV baking show contestant and recent divorcĂ©e Hope Early is trying to find her recipe for success as a food blogger—but murder keeps getting in the mix . . .

When Hope’s elderly neighbor perishes in a home fire, she can't help but feel somewhat responsible. Only the day before, Peggy Olson had called her over, having burned a pot on the stove while she was sleeping and filling the house with smoke. In fact, she couldn't even remember cooking. Clearly, it was dangerous for the woman to live alone.

But it turns out she wasn't alone. When a second body is discovered in the basement of the burned house, suddenly what appeared to be a tragic accident is beginning to look like premeditated murder. As rumors spread like wildfire, Hope is determined to sort out the facts and smoke out a killer, but she might be jumping from the frying pan straight into the fire . . . 

Includes Recipes from Hope’s Kitchen!

My Thoughts:

This book follows Hope Early who is working as a book blogger and taking a workshop to help her photos on her blog look better.  Hope's neighbor has returned home after being in rehab and is desperate to stay home and not end up in a nursing home.  When a fire burns the house and another person is found dead.  Hope finds herself investigating and wondering who started the fire and why?

This book reminds me alot of The Domestic Diva series and other foodie mysteries.  It was fun to read as Hope cooked up possibilities to what happened.  Hope has her work cut out for her in this book as she is doing multiple things at once and you find yourself pulled into her town and figuring out who the bad guy was and why!  Can't wait to see what is next for this local author!
