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.

Fine novel. With recipes!

There's a lot of good calories in this book. You can almost smell the foods described... but you can feel May's emotional struggle as well - thanks to Kristin James's great narration.

Overall, this is a very readable (or listenable - is that a word?) book. I liked Daniel's father, such a nice character. Trudie is wonderful as a friend, and just a bit irritating as woman in love (having bouts of jealousy and getting upset Daniel couldn't be on time to escort her to a party... I just wished she'd cut the poor policeman on a murder case some slack). Otherwise, I'd go out to a dinner with her no problem - even if that meant discovering a murder :)

The story itself is quite nicely set up. It flows and you find yourself listening to it long after you vowed to go to sleep...

Great job, Gale and Kristin!
