Cookin’ the Books by Amy Patricia Meade is tailor-made for our fans, as the plot hinges on a murder at a big library fundraiser. The new caterer in town has just landed her first big job. She’s thrilled but less so when the hostess drops dead, potentially of food poisoning. The hunt for the murderer has twists and turns and small town imbroglios. A winning cozy with a food theme, where small-town secrets come tumbling out of the closet at warp speed and the race to save her reputation energizes the amateur sleuth.
