Book Review/Giveaway: Grilling the Subject by Daryl Wood Gerber

Title: Grilling the Subject
Author: Daryl Wood Gerber
Series: Book 5 Cookbook Nook Mysteries
Publisher: Berkley Prime Crime
Format: Paperback
Source: Received for Review from Publisher
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
Reviewed by: Tina

I must be honest and admit that the Wild West theme in Grilling the Subject did not excite me, but the Cookbook Book Nook Mysteries being one of my favorite series, I had to read it. All the barbecue and ranch style food that chef Katie was cooking up in the The Nook Cafe kitchen had my mouth watering not to mention the the Grilling themed cookbook titles mentioned that were on display in the Cookbook Nook Shop, had me salivating

Jenna Hart helps her aunt Vera run a culinary cookbook shop in Crystal Cove California, The Cookbook Nook. Everyone is excited for the Wild West Extravaganza complete with horse races, rope jumping and more.

Shane Maverick used to work with Jenna in advertiseing before she came to Crystal Cove. He is now a promoter for the Wild West Extravaganza. He is in a property dispute with a local named Sylvia after Shane had moved across  the street from her from the local land owner.

Sylvia is murdered after her house caught on fire and she was stabbed with a implement sold at her shop. Sylvia was not well liked among the locals in the area including Jenna's father,Cary after he complained about loud noise from one of Sylvia's many parties. When Cary is accused of the murder Jenna stops at nothing to try to rope in the killer even with a chilling secret coming back to haunt her that could possibly jeprodize her relationship with her current boyfriend, Rhett.

I always antisipate the themes in every Cookbook Nook mystery although this one didn't thrill me the BBQ dishes and the murder never failed to keep me interested. The unbeliveable drama in Jenna's life along with the murder made Grilling the Subject a page turner, Shane was a new down right arogoant character that you love to hate. I look forward to reading and reviewing the next book in this series.
