What do you get when you mix five feisty senior citizens, three cooking contests, a top rated TV show, and a State Fair? You get Phyllis, Sam, Carolyn, Eve and Peggy, recipes for cookies, funnel cakes and Spam, a murder and fun, fun, fun.

This was such a great book to read. The gang travels to Dallas to the fair and stay with Carolyn's cousin Peggy. Instead of cooking against each other Phyllis and Carolyn decide to enter different cooking contests, Carolyn enters two cookie recipes, Phyllis tries her luck at funnel cake, which she has never made, and Sam enters the big Spam contest. When Phyllis is invited to appear on The Joye of Cooking show, everyone else goes with her for moral support. Little did they know that Phyllis will need more than moral support when someone dies right in front of her and all the audience members.

This is the 8th book in Livia Washburn's Fresh Baked Mysteries. Being a senior myself, it is such fun to read of the antics from members of fellow baby boomers. I'm pretty sure that you will enjoy all of the books in the series. All of the books are food based and contain yummy recipes.
