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.
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.
