An intriguing sleuth who loves gourmet food, family, and her hometown, plus recipes to die for distinguish a delectable mystery. Carolyn Hart, national bestselling author
“Budewitz’s first book in the Food Lover’s Village series is yummy. The main character takes a while to warm up to, but ends up to be very likable. With the eccentric people that make up the rest of the cast, this book is enjoyable.” RT Book Reviews
“Small-town charm and big-time chills…A dizzying culinary delight with a twisty-turny plot!” Laura Childs, New York Times bestselling author
