  • The neighbor from Hell

    Hope Early has been building her personal brand and business and the hard work is paying off. From her blog to her partnerships with other brands and from her coaching calls to her volunteer work, her life is full and she’s happy. Too bad her neighbor Birdie isn’t happy. EVER. When hope finds out Birdie is trying to get their neighbors to sign a petition to get Hope to move out of the neighborhood, that’s the last straw for Hope and she loses her temper with the woman…and everyone in town hears about it. Being the bigger person, Hope tries to smooth things over and takes some freshly baked muffins over to Birdie and asks that they sit down and talk through their issues. Birdie declines, but then agrees and when Hope arrives for their meeting, she finds Birdie dead in the gazebo, having eaten one of Hope’s muffins. WHO killed the woman because Hope sure didn’t, but she’s set up to be the prime suspect after that very public fight the women had. Hope has to clear her name fast or she’ll lose not only everything she’s worked so hard for, but her freedom as well. This is a great cozy series and includes recipes with each release. The characters are well developed and the whodunit has lots of red herrings to keep you guessing, but the clues are there and you have to wait until you get that one aha moment…usually at the real…and you’re satisfied. This one of two series I read from this author and both are on my must read list as I wait for each new entry to come out. Give it a read and you’ll be hooked too.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • This cozy series keeps getting better!

    When I dive into a Food Blogger Mystery by Debra Sennefelder, I know I’m in for a lot of action. The Corpse in the Gazebo has Hope so busy with her baking blog, sponsors, teaching a class, taking care of the chickens, and more that it makes me wonder what Sennefelder’s day to day life is like. It’s been said to write what you know, and if this is true, then Sennefelder is a very, very busy woman! Besides getting a glimpse into a blogger’s life (and how much work there is!) with fantastic recipes that are also shared at the end, this time Hope is investigating because she’s the one that all the clues are pointing to. But Sennefelder’s wonderfully developed characters are there to assist Hope in her crime solving. All of the series core characters are wonderful, but I’m a bit partial towards Jane because of her wisdom and patience and Drew because of his sass. And, of course, we can’t forget Ethan, the boyfriend/chief of police. I really appreciate that Sennefelder doesn’t have him constantly telling Hope not to investigate. And in The Corpse in the Gazebo he even pulls back from his job to help. As for the mystery, Sennefelder always supplies the reader with lots of suspects and red herrings. I did suspect the murderer earlier on because of a thing that was mentioned that just really stood out, but that didn’t take away anything from the story, especially since there are so many other crimes going on…. that may or may not be relevant to the murder. Another fantastic addition to the Food Blogger Mysteries, and since my husband and I have started @shidycakes on Instagram, I’m going to try out the Orange Creamsicle Cupcake recipe at the end of the book and maybe a couple of others too!

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • a good read

    amateur-sleuth, blogger, cozy-mystery, culinary, family-dynamics, foodie, friction, friendship, law-enforcement, lawyers, murder, murder-investigation, pets, read, small-business, small-town***** It was no real feat to guess who the murder victim would be as the woman was a nasty piece of work. Hope left NYC and is renovating her farmhouse in a small town in Connecticut. She is a food blogger, teaching a class on blogging at the local women's shelter, and an amateur sleuth (despite the protests of her boyfriend, the local police chief). Her lawyer is an ex-cop and a good friend. And then there's her sister. The publisher's blurb is a good hook, no spoilers here. Great characters and lots of twists and red herrings as well as plenty of family and friendship. An excellent cozy! I requested and received a free temporary ebook copy from Kensington Books via NetGalley. Thank you!

    Thanks for your feedback!
