Publisher's Summary

Trudie Fine's romantic dinner with Detective Daniel Goldman is cut short by a gruesome murder. When her good friend, May Dubois, is discovered sitting by the body of her dead brother, holding a bloody knife, the case seems as cut and dried as sliced okra. From the start, however, Trudie believes in her friend and sets out to prove May's innocence. But if May isn't the killer, who is? Taking over as temporary manager at May's New Orleans-themed restaurant to do some sleuthing plunges Trudie into a jambalaya of dangerous waters.

Don't miss this one!


Excellent mystery! Fine NOLA food, good friends, a whodunit, and a good cop, what more could you ask for? The plot moves along quickly and the characters are basically fun. Some good situational humor and snappy dialog add to the story. The publisher's blurb gives hints so there is no need for spoilers.
Kristin James is great at providing voice and emotion to the text.

Great culinary mystery

Trudie and Daniel go out to a nice dinner at Trudie's friend May's restaurant when they keep hearing commotion coming from the kitchen. While May has been trying to stand up to the local thugs demanding money for protection, she has learned that Micah has been paying them off secretly. But then, while waiting for their overdue cheque, Daniel and Trudie hear screams and run to the back alley just in time to see May crying over the body of her brother, waving a knife.

This leads to a series of adventures both in the case and in the life of Trudie. The story is enjoyable and includes recipes for the different foods mentioned in the book.

This is a good book that I recommend to anyone, especially lovers of culinary and cozy mysteries!
