Death al Fresco

No, this isn't a dangerous cookbook - it's a mystery novel. The plot involves not one, but two restaurants, but even without that food tie-in, I would have enjoyed the book.

This is one of a series, so it left me wondering about a few things. Like, Sally owns a restaurant of her own, but she seems to spend more time at the "family" restaurant that her dad runs. I have a feeling that previous books explained this quirk, but I kept wanting to nudge her over to her own restaurant to do more than act as a line cook once in a while.

Aside from that little oddity, the book was pretty engaging. Being a murder mystery, someone died, and Sally managed to insert herself into the investigation. Of course she did. And of course she found a major clue. And of course she got into trouble.

This was a fun, easy read, and to be honest it made me want to go find the previous books in the series to find out more about the back story.

Did I mention the recipes? The back of the book (where they're easy to find, all in one place!) are recipes for some of the dishes mentioned in the book. I haven't tried any of them, but I do appreciate that they're included.

Overall, a nice read.

I received this from the publisher at no cost to me.
