Double Truffle is another delightful Terri Springe mystery complete with mouth watering recipes. Terri's dual talents as homegrown caterer and murder mystery sleuth are fully exercised in this delicious caper. The trouble with truffles starts when Terri and her partner Brianna receive a wildly extravagant order for all varieties of truffles from a difficult client named Logan, a wealthy young wife with more money than sense, tact, or taste (or background). Despite her extreme rudeness and demanding behavior, Terri and partner proceed to fill out her extremely expensive order, quickly cashing her (required) payment in advance, only to find they have a murder on their plates, so to speak. The plot development is complicated by the presence of two stepchildren, cared for by Logan, who become temporary refugees with Terri and Brianna while their bewildered father is forced to face a murder charge. Add to the mix some faithful Guatemalan illegal alien servants, a threat by the F.B.I. to Terri, a take charge handsome lawyer named Nick Guerrero, and an ongoing frustrating love affair between Terri and police Captain Rico Matthews, and you have all the ingredients for a perfect culinary thriller.

All the characters are more than plausible, the situations are almost too familiar, and the action is paced just fast enough to hold interest and just relaxed enough to enjoy the writing. All the food writing is clearly well researched and also fascinating. When the catering detective gets to stage a truffle tasting with the whole of the original order by the deceased Logan, a verbal feast is carefully presented and described. Replete with comfort food recipes, nurturing snacks and cookies and treats galore, the food-studded Double Truffle is a culinary mystery that exceeds its expectations. For guilty pleasure readers, mystery readers, lazy cooks, and just plain fans, Double Truffle definitely fills the bill.

I found Double Truffle to be a fast, fun, light hearted book. I enjoyed its easy readability.It was quite entertaining and engaging. The book keeps your interest and involvement trying to solve the who done it mystery. There is no nasty language or innuendo. Both the Terri Springe books were very refreshing and pleasant to read. I would recommend them to anyone looking for light reading.

Double Truffle has its good points. If you like lyrical descriptions of food, you'll enjoy sharing meals with these characters -- and they eat a LOT. If you're sick of bed-hopping heroines, you'll enjoy reading about these ladies curling up in their jammies at night with only their cats for company. However, if you also like bright, witty, well-developed characters and sparkling dialogue, you'll have to find another book. Even the author has Terri Springe describe herself as "boneheaded." The supporting characters have all the personality of a deck of playing cards, and all the emotional depth of a car-park puddle. If you can keep from banging your own head against the nearest hard surface at the juvenile silliness of their conversations and the overuse of commas, italics, and such constructs as "their's" in the narrative, then you'll have a pleasant, light-hearted time reading this book and the half-dozen recipes included at the end. As they say themselves, "It won't gross you out."
