Description:

In the latest in the "USA Today" bestselling series, someone writes a recipe for murder.

Jessica loves the Leg & Claw restaurant, owned by young couple Brad and Marcie. And the restaurant is the couple s dream come true. But when famed chef Gerard Pepe Lebeouf decides to open an eatery right next to theirs, tensions rise fast and hot and lead to a nasty confrontation between Lebeouf and Brad. So when Lebeouf is found dead with a knife planted in his chest, Brad becomes suspect number one. But plenty of others had a motive to kill Pepe, and it s up to Jessica to uncover who really added murder to the menu."

My Thoughts:

Jessica is invited to Brad & Marcie's grand opening of their restaurant and while there with Seth witnesses an altercation between Brad and Gerard Lebeouf whose in the process of opening his own restaurant and dismissing anyone else who runs a restaurant.

When Gerard ends up dead Brad ends up in the hot seat as the town knows about the altercation and Brad's whereabouts for that night are sketchy at best!  Jessica feels determined to find out what happened and who killed Gerard in hopes of freeing Brad from the noose!

I love this series such fun like being back in Cabot Cove it feels like your reading the show that brought many into their living rooms when it aired.  You get the pleasure of Seth and Mort in all their glory.  And of course Jessica at her finest solving another crime!  Can't wait to see what is next in this series!
