  • Tasty read down the shore

    Pastry chef Poppy McAllister has agreed to team up with her ex fiancé Tim for a cooking challenge down the Jersey Shore. Right out of the gate she should have known this was not going to be a piece of cake with the third chef on their team has eyes for Tim and make her intentions known. But things begin getting interesting when the chefs are being sabotaged and hurt during the competition. When one of the judges ends up dead, Poppy finds herself trying to save the competition and find the killer before the killer finds her and makes her victim number two. Add to that two men that are vying for Poppy’s affections and things get even hotter and stickier for her. This is a fun book and the first I have read in the series, though it won’t be the last. I love Poppy’s snarky Jersey sense of humor and the entire cast of characters. The characters are mature and the plot is solid. You won’t know whodunit or why until the very end.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • I loved it!

    This is the third book in this series and I loved it! Poppy is a realistic, contemporary woman, who I really enjoy reading about. I am not usually a fan of culinary competitions, either in print or on television, but this mystery was so well written and the characters were so intriguing, that I could not put it down! All in all, this book was a delight to read and a great continuation to this series. I highly recommend this book and look forward to reading the next in the series. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

  • A sure winner

    I fell in love with the Poppy McAllister Mystery series with the first book and love it more with each novel I read. Restaurant Weeks Are Murder is the best of a fantastic series! The great characters feel like people I know and the plot offers so many reasonable possibilities but no easy answer. The humor ranges from witty to silly and is always fun. The it is the strength of our protagonist that calls to me most. Poppy is very human with health and emotional issues and a temper that she really tries to control. She has recently discovered that many of her physical issues come the autoimmune disease Hashimoto's which is similar to celiac disease and can lead to it, so she is a baker who loves food and is gluten intolerant. I know a lot of people who can relate to that problem! She is willing to work hard to take care of her aunt who raised her and still loves the Chaos Queen in spite of the trouble Aunt Ginny causes. I am not sure how she manages to stay so kind to some people but kindness and loyalty are two of the keys that she lives by. And yet, in spite of her good character, she is a strong multidimensional person who is sure to hold this series at the top for a long time. The only thing I do not love is that here is a tradition love triangle. I like both guys but do not like that she is pulled both ways. Of course for a person who has not been all that popular, she kind of likes the attention from two hot men and I can't blame her for that. After living her teen years with the weight problems and breakouts that come with the disease, she eats up the attention of those two pretty great guys. Thanks to NetGalley of provided the ARC for Restaurant Weeks Are Murder, I am already sharing my excitement with my friends. #NetGalley #RestaurantWeeksAreMurder.
