Food blogger Hope Early takes on a cold case that's heating up fast . . .


Building on her recipe for success with her food blog, Hope at Home, Hope is teaching her first blogging class at the local library in Jefferson, Connecticut. She’s also learning about podcasts, including a true-crime one called Search for the Missing, hosted by Hope's childhood friend, Devon Markham. Twenty years ago on Valentine's Day, right here in Jefferson, Devon's mom disappeared and was never found. Finally Devon has returned to solve the mystery of what happened to her mother—and she asks Hope to help.


The next day Hope discovers Devon's apartment has been ransacked. Her laptop with the research on her mother's cold case is missing, and Devon is nowhere to be found. When her friend's body is later discovered in a car wreck, Hope is convinced it's no accident. Clearly, Devon was too close to the truth, and the cold-blooded killer is still at large in Jefferson. Now it's up to Hope to find the guilty party—before the food blogger herself becomes the next subject of another true-crime podcast . . .


Includes Recipes from Hope’s Kitchen!


  Another exciting installment in this tasty series about a food blogger who ends up with too much on her plate.


Hope Early doesn't let cold and snow keep her from filling her schedule with places to go and people to see. She seems to be helping others out regularly and has difficulty saying NO.
One of her assignments is to help others learn the behind the scenes world of blogging.
When visiting her sister, Claire, she discovers that an old high school friend has returned to town, just in time for the anniversary of the date this friend's mother disappeared. Devon has decided that if no one else will discover what happened to her mother, she will dig into this very cold case.

With all the elements one desires in an amateur sleuth mystery, this story also has a knife sharp edge.
My only complaint is that it arrives at a time when I have had enough of blizzardly cold weather and this book threw me solidly back into winter! Curl up closer to a fire as you read it.

Will Hope's dogged determination to find the truth lose her friends or even her own life?
Are some mysteries and secrets better left laid to rest?
Do the things that happen to us alter the way we view the world and people we thought we knew? How well do we really know people around us?

More questions than answers pop up as Hope seeks not only to fulfill Devon's search for the truth but to make the authorities realize there are connections between this twenty year old case and recent deaths. And will Hope's own romance suffer from her persistence?
You will eagerly turn the pages to find out.
The book is also filled with friends and food, making me long for dinners with extended family.

Delicious recipes included at the end.
