Interesting. Part of a series which I plan to read. Great recipes included. A twist which I didn't expect so kept it interesting to the end.
A mystery set in New Orleans. You could use this book as a guide book to all the great eateries and tourist sites!! Similar to Diane Motts Davidson's books but not as "cute". I absolutely loved this book and am looking forward to the rest of the series!!
Carolyn Blue has just become a food writer, after years as a stay at home mom & wife. The kids are gone and she has decided to start a job of her own. She travels to New Orleans to review the cuisine with her husband, Jason, who is university professor and scientist. He has traveled to the Big Easy for a scientific convention. They are also planning to connect with a group of old friends. One of the friends goes missing and the mysteries begin. I loved this book - a great first novel. Good initial character development. Lots of twists, turns and action as Carolyn learns not only the ropes as a food writer, but also as an amateur sleuth.
Disappointing - rather uninventive story line that was overall just really depressing. Recipes were a fun point however.
First in a really good series of culinary mysteries. This one takes place in New Orleans. A more intelligent funny "cozy" type of book.
