Delicious over-the-top fun! You'll never watch the Food Network shows the same way after reading Beat Slay Love. . . a heady mixture of reality television, misbehaving foodies, murder most-creatively-foul, and determined sleuths. -- Mysterious Galaxy
A wild, witty, enjoyable ride that has a remarkably consistent voice, given how many cooks prepared this delicious broth. And these cooks--Taffy Cannon, Kate Flora, Lise McClendon, Katy Munger, and Gary Phillips-- were clearly having a great time playing together in their literary kitchen. -- Personal Chef Blog
From the Author
The book has been a blast. The friends-- Katy Munger, Lise McClendon, Kate Flora, Gary Phillips, and Taffy Cannon -- took turns writing sections, riffing on each other's plot lines, developing protagonists and villains, taking our crew from coast to coast, from lobster in Maine to huckleberries in Montana, from food festivals to fine dining. We never really believed, in our heart of hearts, that it would work. Writers are notoriously individualist. Probably somebody would give up, go off the rails, throw up their hands. But, remarkably, to our surprise, it did work.
Bestselling author Charlaine Harris, author of the Sookie Stackhouse mysteries that inspired 'True Blood,' said this: "This incredibly sly mystery has everything you'd want when you bite into a dish: suspense, spice, and a new take on an old classic. For anyone who's ever watched Chopped or even stopped in at Williams Sonoma -- Beat Slay Love is the perfect read."
