About the Author
"I found the characters to be likable, realistic, and multi-layered. The plot was entertaining and full of twists and turns. The author included cast iron recipes that are truly mouth watering. I highly recommend this book and series!" ` Michele Wicker--This text refers to the paperback edition.

I loved how this book had 2 mysteries in one and also the fact that we are learning more about the Urban Sprawl.
What I also like about this book is that there's a nap in the book so you get a feel for the town and if you need a reference for anything, you can always refer to it. I can't wait to read the next book in the series.
They did include 3 recipes at the end this time (the first book had only 1). The map of the town is still difficult to read.
To my eye, the book looks like a self-published book, which is sad because many people won't give a self-published book a chance and this is a decent series. I think the cover art is one thing that shows the self-published look--however, the author seems to think her books' cover art is "cute" and great (based on the dedication text). I'm not sure I agree. The text layout seems a little better than what I saw in the first book.
WARNING: SPOILERS MAY LIE AHEAD. READ AT YOUR OWN DISCRETION:
A new, expensive Italian restaurant has opened on the other side of town. Jolie hopes to include them in the business cross-promotions the town is doing. Yet when she first approaches them, they aren't interested.
There's an altercation between Lou and Mr. & Mrs. Seever outside Jolie's restaurant. Later, Lou is found dead. Many villagers blame him for losing their investment savings. Mrs. Seever goes to work as a hostess for the new Italian restaurant but later turns up at Jolie's restaurant to fill out an application (that is left hanging and we never find out what happens about that).
Delilah (and her family) are being pressured to sell the storefronts they own in the "art district" part of town. Instead of asking friends for advice or assistance, Delilah tries to hide it and ends up taking it out on others who care about her.
Mick Meiser finally cashes in on the date with Jolie he bid on at auction in book 1. Keith keeps trying to talk to Jolie about something important but that keeps getting ignored until late in the book--if it's that important, I think he'd try harder to get her to talk with him.
I find myself understanding Jolie's feelings of wanting to be alone at times--her family is a bit overwhelming.
I didn't guess who the murderer was or why until it was revealed. I did suspect someone else but hoped it wasn't that person because I didn't want such a young person to be so twisted. I also didn't guess the identity of the true owner of the Italian restaurant.
It's disturbing that Nestle is seeming to get away with his scheme, though that plot line may not be over yet, so maybe a future book will show a resolution.
My concern is that this is supposed to be a small town, near to a large city, in Ohio--and at some point, it starts to feel like "Murder She Wrote"'s Cabot Cove--as in, how many people can be killed in a small town that rarely has had a murder, before things get a bit too unbelievable--or the police force has to be increased, or something else that changes the character of the town from what it was at the beginning and what drew you to it in the first place.
Jolie is our sleuth and the co-owner of The Cast Iron Creations. She is trying to get past her issues while dealing with a new murder in town. Jolie is trying to do better her despite what everyone thinks. She has a lot of problems, and it isn’t helping with all the murders in town.
I like that Jolie is trying to help solve the murders, but despite what has happened to her. She is lucky that she has her friends and family there. Jolie has done an excellent job figuring out the mystery. I love how she does her murder board as hers is a lot different than what we see from other sleuths murder boards.
Things to look for (and that I liked)
• I still love the coziness of living in a small town.
• Everyone is still concerned about Jolie and the terrible trouble she gets into.
• The new relationship between Jolie and Mick is endearing.
• Jolie realizes she still has issues to work through.

My rating for Jalapeno Cheddar Cornbread Murder by Jodi Rath is five stars. I still like everything about what Ms. Rath’s have done with this book. This book is excellent. I couldn’t figure out who did it, but I can't wait for the next book to come out. Don’t forget to take a look at the recipes in the back of the book.
