Three Food Mystery Novels

Lots of new cozies with a food theme this summer. These three feature a food critic, a soup shop owner, and a cookie shop owner as the main characters/amateur sleuths in these cozies.




Death in Four Courses by Lucy Burdette is a Key West Food Critic Mystery Novel which includes five recipes and published September 4, 2012. A restaurant critic is found dead in a dipping pool at the Key West Loves Literature Seminar. Food critic Haley Snow, another attendee, plays amateur sleuth to make sure she is not the next victim.


A Spoonful of Murder is the first in A Soup Lover's Mystery by Connie Archer, published August 7, 2012. When a blond tourist is found frozen to death behind Lucky Jamieson's soup shop in Vermont, her soup chef is arrested by police. Lucky becomes a sleuth to save her shop and her chef. Recipes are included.


When the Cookie Crumbles by Virginia Lowell was published August 7, 2012, and is a Cookie Cutter Shop Mystery. The owner of a cookie shop, Olivia Grayson, investigates the history of the Chatterly Mansion and the sudden death of its heir, Payne.
