Sifting Through Clues by Daryl Wood Gerber

Sifting Through Clues (A Cookbook Nook Mystery 8)

Daryl Wood Gerber is back with the 8th in the Cook Book Nook Mystery Series.

Crystal Cove is celebrating Book Club Bonanza Week and book clubs from all over are meeting up in town. Jenna is ready at the Cookbook Nook with not only cookbooks but some juicy works as well.

The most exciting group, the Mystery Mavens, are having a moveable feast going from house to house sampling the hosts goodies and talking books. Everyone is enjoying themselves until Jenna and Pepper arrive at the last location only to find a dead host!

And adding insult to injury Pepper is the main suspect. Will her daughter have to arrest her since she is the chief of police? Or will Jenna have to put her Sherlock hat on and uncover the real killer first?

The victim it seems was not so nice of a person. Which makes for a lot of suspects!

With recipes included and a great cast of characters, once again the author has given us a great cozy!

Pressing The Issue by Daryl Wood Gerber

Pressing the Issue (Cookbook Nook Mystery, #6)

The Agatha Award–winning author of Grilling the Subject returns to the Cookbook Nook in Crystal Cove, where the annual Renaissance Fair serves up a helping of crafty courtiers, damsels in distress, and medieval murder . . .

As the annual Renaissance Fair comes to Crystal Cove, Jenna Hart’s Cookbook Nook is packed with tasty treats and all things medieval, while her pal Bailey is ready to swoon over her upcoming nuptials at a local vineyard. But when the two friends discover the body of the vineyard’s owner bludgeoned by a winepress, all their merriment fades, along with their hopes for a vintage year.

Which churlish varlet did the deed? Was it the victim’s errant brother, who stood to inherit the vineyards? Or the owner’s crestfallen ex-girlfriend? Mayhap it was the newly arrived comely wench, or her jealous husband. Fie on them all! Verily, Jenna can’t rest until justice is served, and she vows to track down the killer. But can she sniff out the truth before the villainous culprit strikes again?

Includes tantalizing recipes!

Oh to be in Crystal Cove at the Ren Fair! The entire town gets into the fun with booths and special faire events. Jenna is busy with her own shop as well as helping Bailey with her wedding which is supposed to take place at Nick’s vineyard.

Love is definitely in the air with more than one couple getting shot with Cupid’s arrow, but some couples aren’t all they appear to be. Could one of them be the killer? There are suspects coming out of the woodwork and everyone is acting oddly, even the cat!

If you haven’t tried this author, please do! The recipes are drool worthy and Crystal Cove is worth dropping in on!
