When a ruthless food critic shows up in this small town-and ends up staying at the B&B-all the chefs' are in a dither. Janice, a friend and owner of a restaurant, is beside herself. She convinces Donna to follow this food critic--that didn't work our too well. All Donna manages is to get stopped by her policeman friend!
Now Donna has her brother and sister-in-law helping out at the B&B but has NEVER even invited her mother to come see it. Well she becomes desperate, calls Mom and asks for help! Her Mom is quite the character and between helping--tries to set Donna up with men--she wants grandchildren! She also thinks that Donna's friend the police officer is dragging his heels and feels that making him jealous might------Donna is pretty sure the only reason this guy hangs around is for her cooking.
The food critic is found dead--and Donna has to help to find the killer because really death is not good advertising for a B&B!!
Well I guess Mom's sometimes really do know best----The last words in this easy to read book had me laughing out loud---because Donna was right also!!
When she checks into The Painted Lady Inn, it throws Donna. She is demanding and rude. With her good help, meddling mother, interfering relatives. When murder happens, they step up to solve. It is funny, quirky characters, and plain fun to read and enjoy.
A fun read that is bound to have you turning the pages as you chuckle.
Donna tries to follow the critic to the Little Bit of Paris cafe, but loses her. When she finally reaches the cafe, the waitress she speaks with is not sure if the critic was there or not.
The next day, J.E.'s rental car is found abandoned with a body found a short distance away. A purse and driver's license inside the car indicate that the body may be that of the critic and the police are not sure if it is murder or suicide.
Donna is certain that with the critic's attitude, she would not commit suicide. Then when she goes to clean her room, she discovers a note listing four restaurants. This first restaurant is Jane's, The Croaking Frog. The second is Sylvester's Salon, but this one is crossed out for some reason. Sylvester is a former flame who also has a reputation for chasing anything in a skirt. The third is one that relocated from New Orleans following a scandal. The fourth is in another city and does not seem to fit the current picture.
So who killed the critic, Jane Ellen Muscovy? Did she actually commit suicide? Was it her former flame, who recently proposed to his current girlfriend? Maybe it was somebody else who was trying to protect their restaurant's reputation? Or is there more here than meets the eye and does somebody else have a good reason to want the critic dead!
The characters are well-developed and the story has plenty of twists and turns. Once started, the book is hard to put down
Donna, the inn owner has another mystery to solve but this time her detective suitor/friend accepts her help along with her wonderful cooking, of course. We get to meet Donna's mother in this book. The author has done a great job rolling a lot of the typical traits you'd expect along with a touch of sexual prowess for a humorous addition to the gang.
All in all it is definitely worth your time to read and I recommend it. I received an ARC copy of the book but this is my honest opinion.
