Book Review

 I'm sorry, but i'm not a big fan of popcorn, I hate how it gets stuck in my teeth,  but that is why I don't eat it much but I do love Caramel Corn. I'm a sucker for a cozy mystery with a food theme so I decided to try Pop Goes the Murder.

 Antoine Belanger, ex-husband of Rebecca Anderson, she is the owner of a gourmet popcorn shop called, POPS. They feature popcorn breakfast bars and fudge.Antoine wants to feature Rebecca on his travelling cooking show, Cooking the Belanger Way. It's no secret that Antoine wants Rebecca back.

 Rebecca finds Antoine's assistant for the show, dead in a hotel room bath tub electrocuted with a blow dryer. Sheriff Dan Cooper thinks that Melanie may have commited sucicide but Rebecca thinks other wise. Then it turns out she was in fact murdered and Antoine is arrested for her murder when it's discovered that Melanie was stealing from him giving Antoine a motive.

 Rebecca sets out to find out to help Antoine and find out who killed Melanie believing that Antoine couldn't have possible done it, despite what other people think of him. Melanie what not the easiest person to get along with.

 Grab some popcorn when you read Pop Goes the Murder. The book was very slow paced but then it picked up and I was not able to put it down and it was well worth the read. Characters were spunky and unique, the story was well plotted and made for an exciting read. Tasty treats and murder are popping up in Pop Goes the Murder.
