Crespi describes the cooking,prep so lovingly that you may start eating,the.pages. She's equally affectionate
in her depiction of this amiablle ozy's heroine, who'll be irresistible to women who've lost a husband to a skinnier upgrade or had to make a new start in midlife
The first thing I have to get off my chest is, yes. Yes, this book is everything I hoped it would be. After reading the blurb, I was excited to say the least, and upon reading it, I was engrossed in the story line. It's a murder mystery laced with characters you will love to hate and a protagonist who will make you hungry.
Lori is the ex-wife of Robert, a man who has traded her in for a younger model. That younger model winds up dead, and Lori becomes the first subject in the murder. What I found the most interesting was Lori's realness. Crespi has written character that we can all relate to, even when she is whining about her life. Mostly, she's clever, and that was a breath of fresh air. A strong heroin is always a winner in my book.
Her daughter, Jessica is going through her normal teenage trials and tribulations among the divorce and the murder. In a refreshing twist, Lori and Jessica build on their relationship which I was grateful for. The last thing we need is another mother and daughter not getting along.
And then there's the food. I found it enjoyable that I wanted to eat while reading this book. I mean, really, how good is a writer when they can make you hungry with words. Lori cooks up a storm throughout the pages of this book, leaving everything to the imagination. It was a fresh aspect in a overcrowded genre.
Crespi has definitely found her genre. There are so many secrets hidden in the pages that you will question who the killer is from the very beginning, to the very end. This book combines mystery, murder and food, what more could you ask for? Highly recommended.
This is an enjoyable read that fans of light mystery, great food and enduring friendships will enjoy. It's not gritty or raw or overly graphic. The author applies a just-right touch as a cast of characters contribute (and confuse the heroine off the trail) to solving the mystery of who killed the new wife. Food descriptions are amazing (the female lead is a caterer by profession) and readers may be inspired to go whip up something luscious in the kitchen while reading this book. 4 and a half stars for a well-written and very well-edited story!
warmth and caring those conversations generate. The conversations Lori Corvina has with her friends after her husband, Rob, dumps her for their rich and skinny dentist is not typical of one I have had, although I could relate to the feelings. Lori doesn't have the time to waste crying as she has a thirteen year old daughter to take care of and a busybody vegan mother to deal with and a
catering career to restart to support her and her daughter. When the skinny dentist is murdered in Lori's Connecticut neighborhood after she had a fight with her not long before, Lori becomes the prime suspect. The police turn their attention to her ex when they find out he is having financial problems and has been left a lot of money by his new wife. Although Lori doesn't believe Rob did it and would gladly let him rot in jail, because of her daughter she doesn't feel she can. She resolves to find the real murderer with the help of her three breakfast club friends and her invasive mother. She finds out more than she expected!! So, get a cup of coffee or tea and settle into this delightful book!!!
