Friends, Phyllis,Carolyn Sam and Eve are retired teachers who live together in a lovely house in Weatherford, Texas. Phyllis has a knack for baking and solving the town's murders.
Phyllis and Carolyn are gearing up for a recipe contest that turns out to be a friendly competition between the two, they each need to submit and prepare recipes for Taste of Texas Magazine.
While that is going on Sam adopts a dog he has always wanted from the shelter, a Dalmatian he names Buck who was hit by a car before arriving to the shelter.
Sam and Phyllis take Buck to the local vet, Hank Baxter who is in trouble of his own when he is arrested for the murder of his wife while at his Animal Clinic's Halloween Party for the animals he treats and kids to dress up in their cutest and spookiest costumes. With doggie treats and cookies made and provided by Phyllis and Carolyn.
Sam being convinced Dr. Baxter is innocent sets out to find who really murdered Hank's wife after only knowing him for a week but he comes across a few stumbling blocks and a few suspects along the way when Sam and Hank's lawyer enlist Phyllis to help them sniff out a killer with Buck faithfully by their side.
A lighthearted mystery in the spirit of Halloween with a surprising twist when the killer is revealed. A perfect blend of cute animals and food makes Trick or Deadly Treat a winner.
I loved getting to know Phyllis with her love for all things culinary and her keen murder solving skills and Sam with his Southern drawl. In my mind I pictured him as a tall, handsome man with salt and pepper hair.
Happy Halloween !!!
