Sifting Through Clues (A Cookbook Nook) 

by Daryl Wood Gerber


About the Book

Cozy Mystery 8th in Series 
Beyond the Page (April 23, 2019)
Print Length: 235 pages 

The Agatha Award–winning author of Wreath Between the Lines returns to the Cookbook Nook, where culinary mysteries are giving everyone food for thought . . .
Book clubs from all over have descended on Crystal Cove to celebrate the library’s Book Club Bonanza week, and Jenna Hart has packed the Cookbook Nook with juicy reads and tasty cookbooks. But she’s most excited about spending an evening with the Mystery Mavens and their moveable feast, when they will go from house to house to share different culinary treats and discuss the whodunit they’re all reading. It’s all good food and fun for the savvy armchair detectives, until one of the members of the group is found murdered at the last stop on the tour.
As if that weren’t enough to spoil her appetite, Jenna discovers that all the evidence points to her friend Pepper as being the guilty party. And with Pepper’s chief-of-police daughter too close to the case to be impartial, Jenna knows she’ll have to step in to help clear her friend’s name before a bitter injustice sends her to jail. Sifting through the clues, Jenna unearths any number of possible culprits, but she’ll have to cook up a new way to catch the killer before Pepper’s goose is cooked . . .
Includes tasty sweet and savory recipes!

Crystal Cove is really making the most of theme weeks to draw in tourists. This time the theme is Book Club Bonanza and all over town readers have gathered to discuss and critique novels and enjoy the food mentioned in those books. Mysteries are huge but there is always room for romance.

Bailey's due date is getting near as her baby bump continues to grow. Her employer, Jenna Hart, co-owner of the Cookbook Nook, finds herself caught in the midst of another murder investigation, this time with Police Chief Cinnamon having to suspect her own mother of being a killer. The plot thickens when her never known father arrives in town just in time to also be a potential person-of-interest.
Love gone bad is an under current throughout the book.

Full of delicious clues as well as multiple red herrings, this book can be enjoyed as a stand alone but I love the population of this series and the well developed relationships between them all. I look forward to each visit.
Besides the foodie and book aspects, this is a readers' dream with references to other wonderful books and topics to explore. I always enjoy Aunt Vera and her predictions.
