The Agatha Award–winning author of Wreath Between the Lines returns to the Cookbook Nook, where culinary mysteries are giving everyone food for thought . . . 

Book clubs from all over have descended on Crystal Cove to celebrate the library’s Book Club Bonanza week, and Jenna Hart has packed the Cookbook Nook with juicy reads and tasty cookbooks. But she’s most excited about spending an evening with the Mystery Mavens and their moveable feast, when they will go from house to house to share different culinary treats and discuss the whodunit they’re all reading. It’s all good food and fun for the savvy armchair detectives, until one of the members of the group is found murdered at the last stop on the tour. 

As if that weren’t enough to spoil her appetite, Jenna discovers that all the evidence points to her friend Pepper as being the guilty party. And with Pepper’s chief-of-police daughter too close to the case to be impartial, Jenna knows she’ll have to step in to help clear her friend’s name before a bitter injustice sends her to jail. Sifting through the clues, Jenna unearths any number of possible culprits, but she’ll have to cook up a new way to catch the killer before Pepper’s goose is cooked . . . 

Includes tasty sweet and savory recipes! 

My Thoughts:

Jenna and her friends and co-workers are getting ready for Book Clubs that have arrived at Crystal Cove.  Jenna and her book club are house hopping and having a meal at each house while discussing a Krista Davis book.  When at the last stop they find Ivy Beale dead.  Who killed Ivy and why?  All signs point to Pepper being the guilt party but there is no way Jenna will believe that.  What makes it harder is that Cinnamon her daughter is the chief of police.  Who specifically told Jenna to stay out of it.

Also Rhett Jackson Jenna's fiance is working with Jenna to try to narrow down a location and date for their wedding.  Of course with everything going on a wedding is the last thing on Jenna's mind.  Will she sniff out the clues in time?

I love this series it's fun to watch as Jenna fumbles around trying to figure out what really happened and why?  I also loved how they included a recent cozy mystery into their book club that definitely makes it all the better.  Makes me wish I was part of their book club!  I can't wait to see what is next for this author.  If you have read this book feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section!
