My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I'm not big on cozies that center around food. Maybe because the author tends to focus alot on the food? Maybe because I get hungry reading about all the said food?
Either way I went into reading this not all hopeful. Connie Archer hooked me into the story and didn't let go! Everything was written with just the right amount to keep the reader page turning.

Lucky Jamieson is at a hard cross road in her life. Her parents tragic deaths has left her to pick up the pieces and taking over their Mom and Pop restaurant By the Spoonful. Not knowing what is right for her and her grandfather Jack, Lucky is trying to see where life is taking her when a sudden murder, with the body being found behind Spoonful and her chef being the chief suspect forces Lucky into a the investigation that has a few hard changes in store for her and others.

I really loved how Archer made the restaurant the center of the small town and the book.…
