4 Stars

Thank you to Tantor Media for supplying me with this audio in exchange for a honest review.

My Review:

This was a fun and quick cozy mystery. I easily listened to this one in just one sitting.  I enjoyed both the writing and the narration.  The main characters were well flushed. There is so adult language but nothing graphic nor sexual.  As far as I can tell, this series does not need to be read in order as this is installment #10.  This is the first book that I have read in the series, which I very seldom jump around.  I will be going back and starting at book one in the near future!


When Hayley’s idol, cookbook author and TV personality Penelope Janice, invites her to participate in a Fourth of July celebrity cook-off at her seaside estate in Seal Harbor, Maine, Hayley couldn’t be more flattered. She just hopes she can measure up. 

With a who’s who of famous chefs whipping up their signature dishes, this holiday weekend has all the ingredients for a once-in-a-lifetime culinary experience. Instead, Hayley gets food poisoning her first night and thinks she overhears two people cooking up a murder plot. 

The next morning, a body is found at the bottom of a cliff. Tragic accident or foul play? To solve a real cliffhanger, Hayley will need to uncover some simmering secrets-before a killer boils over again….
