Lights!!!Camera!!!!Action!!!! We head to Jewel Bay, Montana this time for the First Annual Food lovers'Film Festival and I was so excited, i'm not a big movie fan per say but I am a big foodie movie fan and movies like Ratatouille and Big Night were featured at the festival and movies I happen to love. The food is ready and the movie reels ordered hoping one of them will make it there on time the but movie angle in this mystery will center in on a killer. 

It's all about family for The Murphy's. Erin Murphy is the manager of "The Merc" a specialty foods market specializing in local food her mom, Fresca also works there. Erin always has her hands full and she is quite the people pleaser and she is all to pleased to assist Christine Vandeberg, a local painter and former girl friend to Erin's brother, Nick to organize the Food lovers' Film Festival. The high school film class will also be assisting and participating  in the festival. Zayda is in the class and a movie buff and looks to have a bright future in the movie industry and she is also lending a hand.

But will cameras and the film festival stop rolling when Christine is found shot at her home with Zayda found at the scene of the crime?.  Erin's Brother Nick  was also not where he said he was at the time of the murder making Erin somewhat question him but she is also convinced that he is innocent and yet again Erin is drawn in and with family comes first mantra with the Murphy's Erin must help her brother clear his name but there are also a few other suspects. Erin finds it hard to understand what someone would want Christine dead , Could it be related the the film festival or the substantial inheritance that Christine received from another local painter? Erin is determined despite her mother's wishes for her to remain running "The Merc'" to save her brother from prison but Erin must find the killer before the the director yells "cut" on the Food lovers' festival and her life.

I look forward to reading about The Murphy's life at "The Merc" with every book in  Food lovers village Mysteries. The food talk and foodie descriptions are very tempting and leave you craving  more, perfect for a self proclaimed foodie like me. This was a  exciting and entertaining edition to the series much like a favorite movie makes you feel.This is a book to enjoy while eating popcorn, sipping on some soda and munching on movie candy. Erin is a force to be reckoned with when family is concerned, you can feel this families love through the pages, with a past death of Erin's father and the suspicion over how he died Erin has a fighting spirit in wanting to help her brother . Butter off dead plays like a action packed movie with murder as the main attraction and gets five stars from this book reviewer.
