 Book binder and wanna be foodie, Brooklyn Wainwright is asked by her sister and chef extraordinaire, Savannah to bring back to life an antique cookbook, Brooklyn jumps at the chance. It is for Savannah's superstar chef boyfriend, Baxter Cromwell. Savannah gives the restored book to Baxter as a gift at the opening of his new restaurant along with many of their other successful chef friends in attendance.

The night of the restaurant opening, Baxter is found murdered in his very own restaurant kitchen and then cookbooks goes missing and Savannah becomes the primary suspect, Brooklyn is determined to prove that Savannah is innocent, there are many past hurts and bad blood that surface from the other chefs and old friends. Its up to Brooklyn to fan the flame before her sister, Savannah's goose is cooked for good.

This book is a reread for me, I enjoyed it the first time, thought I would review the paperback edition. Great culinary theme throughout, suspenseful  and wacky characters and any bibliophiles dream. Books and food and murder make for the best combination in this paperback edition.  I'm a big fan of this series and any cozy  mystery including books and murder and food, count me in.
