Publisher's Summary

It's the week before Thanksgiving, and business is bounteous for Trudie and Zach's catering company, A Fine Fix, beginning with a posh art exhibit at the prestigious Christine Dugan Gallery. When the guest list includes art connoisseurs, wealthy collectors, and prominent socialites, not to mention a well-respected art critic from The Washington Post, a successful event can only mean future bookings. But the discovery of a gruesome murder brings the high-class evening to a screeching halt. In the days that follow, Trudie faces a cornucopia of troubles as her curiosity lands her in plenty of hot gravy. Not even her new canine friend, Zeus, can protect her against threats to her life or keep the killer off her trail. Trying to get her footing and find the murderer is like walking through a sweet potato casserole. Trudie has seen how deadly art can be, and now she's a sitting duck. Recipes Included.

The best culinary mystery I've read!

I have read many culinary mysteries, but I think this is the best one yet! Trudie caters an art exhibition showing the works of her baker partner's lesbian partner, Rose. At the exhibition, the owner of the gallery gets murdered with the necklace given to her by Rose. The police arrest Rose, though Trudie is certain of her innocence and is determined to help prove that.

The characters in this book are well-written, and I love the dog in the book. Trudie helps out Rose, who does agility competitions with Zeus, by filling in for her at the state finals because Rose is still stuck in jail, waiting to get a chance to get bail.

I really love the way that Trudie uses food words to swear with. "That scared the shitake out of me!"

I also was impressed that the book contains a lesbian couple, something unusual for cozy mysteries.

DISCLAIMER: I received this book for free from the author, but that had no influence on my review.

Just Okay

I listened to book one in this series but I have not read or listened to book 2 so maybe that is part of my problem. I thought Kirstin James did a nice job with the narration. Kirstin has a pleasant voice but I did find the changing of voices for the characters a bit distracting. The story was okay but again it was missing something for me. I was gifted this audio-book with the understanding that I would leave an honest review.
