On The Back:
Few can compete with Natasha Smith when it comes to entertaining, but her childhood rival, Sophie Winston, certainly tries. Natasha may have stolen the spotlight, and Sophie’s husband, but Sophie is determined to rob her of the prize for the Stupendous Stuffing Shakedown. She just needs the right ingredient.
But Sophie’s search for the perfect turkey takes a basting when she stumbles across a corpse. And when the police find her name and photo inside the victim’s car, Sophie will have to set her trussing aside to solve the murder, or she’ll be serving up prison grub.
Wow, two amazing mysteries in a row! I picked up this book because I found it on Overdrive and I liked the author’s other series. I don’t regret it!
This book honestly reminded me of a really good Matlock or Murder, She Wrote episode for the simple fact that it was a simple mystery that made it flow so naturally and the fact that it was a quick read that I immensely enjoyed.
As I mentioned above the mystery and plot was simple, and it was extremely refreshing, because it was so simple I didn’t see half of it coming and the ending truly surprised me. I don’t mean simple in a bad way either, not simple such as idiotic, but simple as in the author didn’t waste pages with useless info about the murder or the MC, Sofie’s, craft, but she filled the pages with really good interactions and a great murder plot.
Overall an amazing mystery. I’m checking the next one out right now!
