4/5 New Bistros
On The Back:
Jessica loves the Leg & Claw restaurant, owned by young couple Brad and Marcie. And the restaurant is the couple s dream come true. But when famed chef Gerard Pepe Lebeouf decides to open an eatery right next to theirs, tensions rise fast and hot and lead to a nasty confrontation between Lebeouf and Brad. So when Lebeouf is found dead with a knife planted in his chest, Brad becomes suspect number one. But plenty of others had a motive to kill Pepe, and it s up to Jessica to uncover who really added murder to the menu.”
If you want a simple, but great mystery with well-thought out, established characters, this series is for you. Almost every book can serve as a stand-alone, but each book has the same characters that you grow to love.
The mystery was excellent, the plot was well-thought out and a pleasant surprise. There was no ultra-suspenseful end, but in a book like this, that’s nice, it fits in and leaves you with a contented feeling.
Overall a superb book that I’d recommend! Long live Mrs. Fletcher!
