Southern Sass and Killer Cravings by Kate Young

Southern Sass and Killer Cravings is the first book in a brand new cozy mystery series. This book fits in perfectly with other culinary cozies and even some paranormal as our MC is being “haunted” by her dead mother. I use quotes around haunted because there is nothing malevolent about it, just that her mother who has passed is speaking to her about the murder […]

Murder Lo Mein by Vivien Chien

Murder Lo Mein is the third book in the Noodle Shop mystery series and I think it’s my favorite to date! This could be due to the fact that I love Lo Mein… In any event, this is another fantastic addition to the series and I highly recommend it to anyone who loves a culinary cozy, Chinese food, and murder! In Murder Lo Mein, readers […]

Leave No Scone Unturned by Denise Swanson

Leave No Scone Unturned is the second book in the Chef-to-Go mystery series! One of my favorite things about this series is how Denise Swanson makes the murder so complex. They aren’t your average mysteries where it’s easy to spot the killer and the actual murders that take place are big deals. It’s not over something small. This makes the stories much more intriguing and […]

One Potato, Two Potato, Dead by Lynn Cahoon

One Potato, Two Potato, Dead is the third installment in the Farm-to-Fork mystery series! Lynn Cahoon is a wonderful mystery writer and I am always anxious for her next novel (especially within this series). She makes her characters lovable, tough, and charming. With that being said, I truly love this series and think this is the perfect addition. While I wish there were more recipes […]

Pie Hard is the third book in the Pie Town Mystery series. I have come to really love this series and am always super excited when a new installment is added. Kristen Weiss has with transforming her characters to people and I am always happy to catch up with Val and Charlene. Whether these two are baking some pies or solving a murder I always […]

Restaurant Weeks Are Murder by Libby Klein

BOOK REVIEW I just adore this series! Poppy is such a fun character with a sparkling personality and sense of humor. Not only am I devouring the mystery but I am laughing at the things she thinks and says. Another thing that makes this series is Poppy’s great aunt Ginny. She reminds me of Grandma Mazur from the Stephanie Plum series- she’s silly, quirky, and […]

Batter off Dead by Maymee Bell

My Thoughts Maymee Bell (aka Tonya Kappes) is one of my favorite cozy mystery writers! She builds worlds though her words and brings these characters to life. The amount of southern charm that exudes from these characters is precious and one cannot help falling instantly in love with them. The bonus of course is the delicious recipes that are included in the story and I […]

Bleeding Tarts by Kristen Weiss

There was absolutely nothing that I didn’t like about this book! It’s fun, filled with humor, and has relatable characters. Some are a bit eccentric (Charlene and Marla) but I loved them because of it! I have to admit, I was weary going into this one because I didn’t LOVE the first book in the series, but this one was perfection. I’m really glad I […]

Cake and Punishment by Maymee Bell

My Thoughts Wohoo! This book is the PERFECT southern, cozy mystery. And, it’s the first in a brand new series- one of which I am very much anticipating for the future (can I have it now, please!?!). Also, this book is a culinary cozy, meaning a lot of it revolves around a murder AND delicious desserts, which is an absolute FAVORITE of mine. If any […]

Killer Green Tomatoes by Lynn Cahoon

Lynn Cahoon is still a fairly new author to me, but she is quickly climbing into one of my favorite cozy authors. Her characters just seem to speak to me. They are realistic, relatable, and easy to love. The mysteries aren’t cheesy like some cozies out there, and are fun to solve right along with the characters. My only issue, and really it’s an issue […]

Who Moved My Goat Cheese? by Lynn Cahoon

I really enjoyed this first book in the Farm-to-Fork Mystery series. The concept is a really neat one and something I haven’t seen before so it made the book original. The characters are very likable as well making it for easy reading. I look forward to reading the second book in the series once it is released.  As stated above, this is the first book […]

The Quiche and the Dead by Kristen Weiss

The Quiche and the Dead is the first book in a brand new mystery series by Kristen Weiss. It’s an enjoyable “who-dun-it” with delicious recipes and a fantastic set of characters. Readers may not have a hard time figuring out the person behind the murders, but this doesn’t take away from the story especially considering the fact that you won’t figure out WHY they happened […]

A Soufflé of Suspicion by Daryl Wood Gerber

If you are new to cozy mysteries and want to give the genre a try I highly recommend starting with this series! It has been quite a while since I have been able to sit down and 5 star both books in a cozy series but this one deserves it! The heroine/sleuth (Mimi) is a pure delight! I love her personality, attitude, and the way […]

A Deadly Eclair is the first book in a brand new cozy mystery series by Daryl Wood Gerber. This is a culinary mystery that revolves around delectable french foods, a new bistro, and a murder! The characters are fantastic. Readers will have a ton of fun sleuthing with Mimi and enjoy the company of the secondary characters who easily warmed my heart. There is a […]
