Plus she provides some great pizza recipes.

I find the author repeats herself almost verbatim with some phrases which gets tiresome to me.
Arlene
I love how it was written and how they were able to bring other characters into the book.

As busy as Sisters Eleanor Swift and Maddy Spencer always are in Timber Ridge, North Carolina's popular Pizzeria; "A Slice of Delight", they always seem to find some time to help others. Little did they know that the assistance that they offered to their friend, Cindy Rankin, would lead to a murder investigation as well as the grand opening of her book store. The opening was to be a star-studded affair featuring a cooking demonstration and book-signing by renowned cookbook author and TV star of the "Food For Thought Channel"; domineering, egotistical Chef Antonio Benet. After the Chef directs tantrums and nastiness at all of the staff, he is escorted to "The Slice" to rest and regain his composure before his appearance. When he doesn't arrive back at the bookstore on schedule, Eleanor and Maddy scatter to find him. As Eleanor enters the pizzeria to check, she spots the Chef seated at a table with his back to the door and speaks to him. When she receives no reply she approaches, only to frighteningly discover that he has been stabbed to death. After the shock starts to wear off, reality sets in with concern for the future of the now-scarred restaurant combined with the beginnings of the sleuthing sisters' investigation which produces much unrest and many suspects, including having to eliminate themselves! Friendship, Love, Loss, insecurities, courage, confusion, commitment, forgiveness and understanding create complications to the already heady mix of intrigue. Who would want the pompous, overbearing Chef Benet dead? Book shop owner; Cindy, who may lose everything due to Chef Benet's insults and no-show? Oliver; the used, misused and abused wanna-be cooking star? The woman scorned and betrayed, Chef's wife; Patrice? Jessie: the "Hot-Wire Connection" between the "Food for Thought Network and the Chef?Read more ›

Eleanor and her sister Maddie are at the middle of murder again in this small town in North Carolina where Eleanor owns the local pizza parlor. This time it involves an surly chef who has come to town to put on a cooking demonstration for his latest cookbook at the - soon to be - newest bookstore in town. After he is found dead (in their place) the only problem is that there are just way too many people who wanted to be rid of him, one way or another. Since they need the pizza parlor back in business pronto it is up to them to lend a helping hand to the police - even if it is not particularly wanted. We learn more about the sister's love lives along the way, and catch up with a few of the towns personalities . All in all and enjoyable and cozy read.

I agree with one of the other reviewers who rated this 1 star. But my other complaint was that Eleanor was a real Witch, with a capital B! How dare she meddle in her sister's life concerning Bob? It's people like this that make me glad I'm an only child! Who does she think she is that she can do that and, yet, as smart as she thinks she is, still have no idea that what she did was so very wrong? I won't be reading anymore of this series. Anyway, I don't even like pizza that much anymore.

I was actually wondering if this was even penned by the same author who had written the previous ones...it was horrendous. It was like wading through mud (maybe quicksand would be a better description as it just kept sinking lower and lower). I was groaning at some of the scenarios (murdered body in a RESTAURANT is simply cleaned up afterwards by owners and the pizza joint opened the next day - where are the biohazard suited professional cleaners...especially in a RESTAURANT?). And Maddy drinking the equivalent of one glass of champagne and she's reeling from the alcohol? Or the bookstore owner wallowing in her widdow'd grief...only to jump someone's bones in the backroom? It was painful to say the least, and an insult to an otherwise acceptable series. And why would the bookstore owner's mom threaten Eleanor w/ revealing her 'secret' then drop the entire line of thought? This book had absolutely no redeeming value and was painful to the max.

At this very moment, I can smell pizza baking in a pizzzeria oven. Eleanor along with her sister, Maddy, own a pizzzeria. They're always busy because customers around town love their pizza. However, there are times when something more important happens like a murder. When a very grouchy, snippety chef comes to town to sign and share his new book at the Bookmark, it isn't long before murder comes to town too. The chef is found sitting in The Slice with a knife stuck in his chest. There is no question whether it's murder. The only question is whodunnit. Eleanor and Maddy get involved with the investigation whether Detective Kevin Hurley wants them to or not. As a matter of fact, they find strong evidence and clues. As sleuths, they're just too good. It almost felt like no one else was working the case.

There aren't many suspects: Patrice, Cindy, Oliver, Jessie, Janet and Eleanor and Maddy. So, it's easy to keep up with who might have done the bad deed. Patrice, wife of the Chef brings a lot of fun to the plot by drinking and drinking and drinking. Is she really as drunk as she seems?

Of course, it wouldn't be a cozy without a little romance. Eleanor is a widow. She misses Joe, her husband, terribly. She has moved on and is in a relationship with David. It seems like it's working out fine. Maddy who is Eleanor's sister has been married four times. When Bob approaches her with marriage, she's hesitant. She and Eleanor have a falling out about what Eleanor won't tell Maddy. After all, Eleanor and Bob have been whispering about something. Eleanor promised Bob she wouldn't tell Maddy any part of the secret conversation. As far as Eleanor is concerned, their business is their business.

I liked the tension between Maddy and Eleanor.
