  • Another excellent entry in the series!

    When Jaymie’s daughter becomes friends with a girl in her class, Jaymie meets the mother and the woman asks to meet with Jaymie alone to talk to her. The woman keeps putting off sharing what she wants to discuss one too many times and is killed on her way to see Jaymie and tell her what she wanted to discuss. Now Jaymie is seeking justice for the young mother and begins sleuthing. The family was incredibly unlucky, but maybe the dead woman’s husband, who died in an accident fiver years ago, was also murdered. Jaymie will find out, if it’s the last thing she does! This is a favorite series and I always follow the author to find out when the next release will be. Between the three legged dog, a little daughter and vintage kitchen items, I’m there. It’s the great whodunit in each entry that keeps me coming back! Already longing for the next entry in the series.

  • a good read

    Michigan, cozy-mystery, law-enforcement, recipes, family-dynamics, friendship, murder, murder-investigation, secrets, small-business, small-town, rural**** The first death, five years ago, was somewhat suspicious and the local detective is still fixated on the wife. Said wife was murdered now and just after the detective asked the continuing character to get involved. Interesting but unexpectedly dark. I requested and received a free temporary ebook copy from Beyond the Page via NetGalley. Thank you

  • Great mystery

    A Calculated Whisk is the 10th book in the Vintage Kitchen Mysteries series by Victoria Hamilton. Alicia, the mother of a child in Jocie’s class, reaches out to Jayne for help. Before she can tell Jaymie what she needs help with, she is murdered. I really like the characters of Jaymie, Jakob, and Jocie. The friendship between Jocie and Mia is really sweet. Trying to untangle the relationships between the victims’ family kept me guessing. Thank you to the author, the publisher, and NetGalley for the Advanced Reader Copy (ARC) copy of this book and I am voluntarily leaving an honest review.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • An engaging whodunit!

    A Calculated Whisk by Victoria Hamilton is the 10th A Vintage Kitchen Mystery. It can be read as a standalone if you are new to the series. I have read this entertaining series from the beginning, and I have enjoyed each story. They just keep getting better. Jaymie Leighton Muller is a strong female protagonist who has grown over the course of the series. I like seeing her happy with her husband, stepdaughter, her jobs, and fur babies. There is a great cast of secondary characters that enhance the story. They are realistic characters which I appreciate. The author’s descriptive writing style brings the characters and the charming Michigan town to life. The mystery was interesting. There is a five-year-old crime that has been recently deemed a homicide and it involves a neighbor. At the request of Detective Vestry, Jaymie gets close to the wife of the victim to try and obtain information. Unfortunately, the woman ends up dead before she shares her information. Jaymie believes the two crimes are connected. She wants to get closure for the family so Jaymie begins digging into the case. Jaymie has her work cut out for her if she is going to solve this whodunit. It is clever how Jaymie gets helpful information from casual conversations. You never know what nugget of information will help solve the case. I thought the murder weapon was quite unique. I found A Calculated Whisk to be well-written with the story moving at a slower pace courtesy of the author’s expressive writing. I appreciated that the story contained no foul language and negligible violence. I thoroughly enjoyed the descriptions and information about vintage kitchen items. I can understand Jaymie’s fascination with them. I enjoyed my visit with Jaymie and her family. Jaymie’s stepdaughter is such a sweetheart and Hoppy makes me laugh with his antics. A Calculated Whisk is an engaging tale with wire whisks, a fun new friend, a cold case, a dedicated detective, a senseless slaying, a mournful mother, and a resolute amateur sleuth.

  • Another in the Vintage Kitchen Series

    Jaymie Muller and her daughter Jocie befriend Alicia Vance and her daughter Mia. Alicia’s husband was killed several years before in a tragic accident. The death is now being re-examined as a possible murder. It seems that Alicia is one of the prime suspects. Alicia approaches Jaymie to ask for help but isn’t forthcoming about the kind of help she needs. As Alicia is walking through the woods to Jaymie’s house, she is murdered using the wire from a kitchen whisk. Jaymie is afraid whoever killed Alicia (and probably her husband) will believe that Alicia had already confided in Jaymie. Jaymie fears for the safety of her family. Jaymie has helped the local police solve murders in the past. She decides to use her “detective skills” to solve this case in order to keep her family safe. I enjoyed the book. I did feel there were too many characters in the book. In fact, the first couple of pages listed the Cast of Characters”. Jaymie jumped to a lot of conclusions without having facts to back them up. But in the end, Jaymie solved the mystery before anyone else could bet hurt.

    Thanks for your feedback!
