About the Author
Janel Gradowski lives in a land that looks like a cold weather fashion accessory, the mitten-shaped state of Michigan. She is a wife and mom to two kids and one Golden Retriever. Her journey to becoming an author is littered with odd jobs like renting apartments to college students and programming commercials for an AM radio station. Somewhere along the way she also became a beadwork designer and teacher. She enjoys cooking recipes found in her formidable cookbook and culinary fiction collection. Searching for unique treasures at art fairs, flea markets and thrift stores is also a favorite pastime. Coffee is an essential part of her life.

Banana Muffins & Mayhem is a winner from the first page! The Ms. Gradowski includes several recipes including one for Malted Chocolate Banana Muffins which are delicious. This delightful, clean cozy mystery will leave wanting more. If you are looking for a well written cozy mystery that will not be able to put down, then you need to read this book. This book may be the best of the series to date! I highly recommend this book to those who appreciate a superbly written culinary cozy mystery with a touch of intrigue! You won’t be disappointed.
Full Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed in this review are my own.
This is a fantastic series!! The stories are well constructed and are not redundant from book to book. The characters are multi dimensional and add to the storyline with their own struggles and personalities. For example, Amy is struggling with not wanting to be a mother. This adds another layer to a character I have grown to love. The writing is great and I love the cooking imagery used throughout the book.
This should be on your reading list!!
While going to visit her husband Alex at his company, Quantum Media, Amy discovers the body of home improvement tv show hostess Phoebe Plymouth outside of the business. When a new and inexperienced detective zeroes in on Alex and his employees, Amy makes it her mission to find out who the true killer is. But while Amy is investigating, her life as well as Alex’s is put in jeopardy.
I found myself enjoying the storytelling and forgetting I wanted to solve the murder as much as Amy did. I ultimately found myself completely blindsided by the murder and why they committed the crime.
Banana Muffins & Mayhem is the fifth book in the Culinary Competition Mystery series. Having read all the books in this series, I’ve enjoyed watching the characters lives progress and I can’t wait to see what else is in store for them. It should be noted that this is a true stand alone read.
