    I never seem to guess the killer!

    It is time for a trip back to Jefferson to see what Food Blogger, Hope Early, has new in her life.  Hope finds herself knee-deep in another mystery when she stumbles across another dead body while on a scavenger hunt.  The bigger surprise comes when two other women appear in town and claim to still be married to the deceased.  Who is the true widow?  Will Hope survive the search for the killer?  You'll have to read the book to find out those answers and much more. I've enjoyed this series because I love food and I am always intrigued at a look behind the scenes of what food bloggers do to create their recipes and posts.  I love to cook but have never really created my own recipe.  I have adapted some recipes but that is about all.  Several of the recipes in this book have chocolate in them so my mouth was watering just reading about the muffins, cookies, and cakes.  Recipes are provided and a few have caught my eye. The mystery is intriguing and the author does a splendid job of hiding the killer in plain sight.  I'm not sure I suspected this character so I was surprised when the story came to a head and the killer was revealed.  There are several potential suspects and while I would have liked it to have been one character, no such luck. Hope has multiple sides to her - she inserts herself into the case trying to solve the murder (despite her boyfriend the sheriff asking her to stay out of the investigation), she doesn't know how to say no, and is a little insecure when it comes to her relationship with Ethan.  But all of these pieces come together to form a likable protagonist. Overall I enjoyed this book and look forward to the next one in the series.  We give it 4 paws up.

    I loved it!

    This is the third book in the series and it just gets better and better! The characters are written vividly and full of personality. The whodunit was really top notch and kept me guessing. (I was unsuccessful in guessing the culprit I have to admit). I look forward to reading the next in the series! I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

    A First-Rate Novel

    Although I have not read the first book in this series, I have read the second one - The Hidden Corpse - and I was happy to dive straight into this third one - Three Widows and a Corpse. Debra Sennefelder did a fantastic job providing any backstory, making this a great standalone read. I particularly liked Hope Early, a food blogger who is kept busy developing her food blog, Hope at Home, and choosing low-cal recipes for a feature in Cooking Now! magazine. Possessing the necessary attributes of any great sleuth: intelligence, curiosity and keenness, she's never too busy to compete in the town's traditional annual scavenger hunt. Set in the Jefferson, Connecticut, Hope has a lot going on in this book, as she finds one item not on her scavenger hunt list-a dead husband. The grisly surprise is the corpse of shady real estate developer Lionel Whitcomb, shot in a car park. His wife Elaine, who's also taking part in the hunt, gasps and nearly faints. So why do two other women proclaim that their husband is dead? Did one of them put a bullet in the bigamist? Number one suspect and number three wife Elaine begs Hope to investigate. . . I was sold on this compulsive story from the very beginning, with its solid characters, great writing and a marvellous mystery that provided a good sprinkling of clues to satisfy even the most painstaking and diligent armchair detective. There were numerous characters in Three Widows and a Corpse but I think I just about managed to keep track of all of them without being overwhelmed! Apart from Hope herself, I was also rather fond of her family and friends - her sister Claire, her close friend Drew, Jane Merrifield, owner of the Merrifield Inn and mystery novelist and of course Ethan Cahill (Police Chief boyfriend) and the wonderful dynamics between them. Obviously, I have to also mention Hope's adorable doggy, named Bigelow and the addition of Princess the cat! Another of my favourite aspects of this novel was the fluidity of the writing. The details of the plot were very well-executed and every chapter left me with a compelling need to read on. The author did a brilliant job of balancing the different story-lines and there was just enough of Hope's personal life and blogging to balance this murder mystery. The story was brimming with humour, yummy food, lots of suspects and clues were sprinkled throughout. I am looking forward to returning to Jefferson with Hope on a future occasion. So entertaining and engaging, Three Widows and a Corpse is definitely well worth the time invested. A superb read and very highly recommended. I received a complimentary digital copy of this novel, at my request, from Kensington Books via NetGalley and this review is my own unbiased opinion.

    Loved getting a peek into a Food Blogger's world.

    Three Widows and a Corpse is the first book I’ve read in the Food Blogger Mysteries, and as with any good meal at a restaurant, I’ll be coming back for more. Debra Sennefelder does a fantastic job writing a protagonist that I would love to be, and Sennefelder already was, having ran a food blog for many years. I really enjoyed that Hope was a food blogger since in all the food cozies I’ve read the main character is usually a chef, baker, restaurant or cafe owner. Getting a glimpse into a food bloggers life was a fun treat. As well as enjoying Hope’s character, Sennefelder works wonders with the rest of the people in the book. Quite a few I could see becoming friends with, and Sennefelder also gives us great quirky characters and antagonists that are, well… antagonizing. What drew me to this book, besides the gorgeous house and landscaping on the cover, is the small town’s annual scavenger hunt. I’m always down for a scavenger hunt, escape room, or murder mystery party. While the scavenger hunt ended early, that’ll happen when you find a dead body, it was still a fun draw to the book. And the town of Jefferson, Connecticut seems adorable, someplace I would love to visit and look forward to continuing to read about in future books in the series. Although I did know the killer early on, my podcast partner, Jessica, didn’t know until the reveal at the end. I’m going to say I knew just because I read a lot of cozies, and since this is the first one I’ve read of the Food Blogger Mysteries, this person just seemed to stand out to me. Perhaps if I started the series with book one, The Uninvited Corpse, I wouldn’t have been able to spot the murderer so soon or at all. A great read and I’m looking forward to more in the Food Blogger mysteries, as well as trying out Sennefelder’s other series, The Resale Boutique Mysteries. If you would like to hear about Debra Sennefelder’s upcoming books, writing style, and more, check out the author interview Jessica and I did with her on, Books Don’t Review Themselves.

    I liked it!

    murder-investigation, cozy-mystery, amateur-sleuth, culinary I never knew that there was such a thing as a food blogger! We don't get an extensive picture of the creep before he is murdered, but afterwards is a whole other story. He was a shady businessman facing probable felony charges, and it turns out that he never completely finalized the divorces from his first two wives (who just happened to be in town the day he got murdered) and his third wife is at least as obnoxious as one of the local reporters. Food blogger Hope has more than enough to keep her busy when she finds the body (another one!), but things only get worse as each of the widows keeps pointing at everyone else. Hope's romantic interest is the local Chief of Police who wants her to stay out of the investigation, but life just doesn't work that way! It's a good read with realistic characters and a sound mystery plot. I liked it. I requested and received a free ebook copy from Kensington Books via NetGalley.
