Its a recipe for disaster when bookbinder Brooklyn Wainwright is asked to restore an antique cookbook….


Brooklyns sister Savannah and her former culinary school classmates all became successful chefs, especially Savannahs ex-boyfriend Baxter Cromwell, who went on to culinary superstardom. When he invites the old gang to the gala opening of his new restaurant in San Francisco, Savannah asks Brooklyn to restore a rare antique cookbook as a present for him.


The night they all gather, Baxter is found dead, the cookbook has disappeared, and Savannah becomes the suspect du jour. But Brooklyn knows her sister is innocent, and there are plenty of old grudges simmering among this backstabbing bunch. Now shell have to turn up the heat on the investigation before Chef Savannah finds herself slinging hash in a prison cafeteria.

Welcome to Stoneham, New Hampshire, the home of niche shops, mostly book shops. Tricia Miles owns the Haven't Got a Clue mystery bookstore, but has been called on to solve more than the mystery on the pages of a book. It's Founder's Day with a celebration in the town square. Tricia and the rest of the town are in attendance while her friend and event organizer Deborah Black gives the opening speech. With the entire town watching, a small plane crashes into the village gazebo, killing both the pilot and Deborah. Tricia has a feeling that the this was more than an accident, and she sets out to investigate. I love this series. Tricia, her employees, her sister, and other characters are down-to-earth and have believable feelings and interactions. I'll definitely keep reading this series.

The star of this series is Trisha Miles who owns a mystery bookstore, Haven't Got A Clue, in Stoneham, New Hampshire. The whole town has been rejuvenated by a group of bookstores and other shops with a book theme, even a restaurant owned by Tricia's sister, Angelica, called Booked For Lunch.

As we return to Stoneham it is Founder's Day. The whole town is participating in the grand event planned Deborah Black. It is while Deborah is giving her welcoming speech that tragedy strikes. A small airplane that was hired to fly a huge banner around in the air during the festivities starts to rapidly lose altitude until it crashes into the gazebo where Deborah was giving her speech. The pilot and Deborah are both killed by the crash.

An accident right? The Sheriff's Department and the National Transportation Safety Board deems the crash an accident, but Tricia doesn't believe they have uncovered the entire story. Certain people around town are just acting weird especially after such a horrendous "accident". She believes there is a lot more mystery behind what really happened. She has read more than enough mysteries and helped solve more than her share of murders, she just has to figure out who issued Deborah and the pilot their "death sentence."

I have loved this series from the first book, Murder Is Binding. The author had me from book 1, page 1. This latest installment was no exception, I couldn't put it down last night. Sometimes I get close to the end of a who-dun-it and know who-dun-it, not the case here. The plot was pure perfection, drawing the reader in closer and closer and then twist, turn, surprise!!!

Great mystery, lovable characters, a beautiful setting (well the gazebo needs to be rebuilt and maybe a memorial for Deborah), a dash of romance, a bit of humor, Miss Marple meets a new friend, all the pages put together make it the purrfect cozy mystery. The whole series is not be missed!!!
