Karen White is one of my favorite narrators. For the most part, I will listen to anything that she narrates! This cozy read was a little slower than the prior installment. While each book can be read as a stand-alone, this one initially wraps up some unanswered questions from prior installments, which can create some confusion. I was also a little surprised and disappointed with the conclusion.
Tricia Miles is yet again in hot water. If hosting a party isn’t stressful enough, one of her guests drops dead from Tricia’s cooking. Compounded with local vandalism, Tricia can’t seem to get a break. Angelica, Tricia’s sister is also having some troublesome issues. I have really enjoyed the character building of both Tricia and Angelica.
Tricia Miles, mystery bookstore owner and amateur sleuth, throws a housewarming cocktail party in her new apartment and has cooked all the food by herself–quite a feat for someone who previously couldn’t boil water. Then one of her guests is poisoned and dies. Tricia’s left to wonder if her cooking is to blame or if there’s something much more sinister at play. Either way, Tricia’s once again in hot water with her ex-lover, Chief Baker.
Meanwhile the charming town of Stoneham is being disrupted by a vandalism crime wave. It’s the hot topic in the race for Chamber of Commerce president which sees Tricia pitted against two bitter rivals. With all that’s going on can she find the killer before she’s the next item on the menu?
