About the Author
Janel Gradowski lives in a land that looks like a cold weather fashion accessory, the mitten-shaped state of Michigan. She is a wife and mom to two kids and one Golden Retriever. Her journey to becoming an author is littered with odd jobs like renting apartments to college students and programming commercials for an AM radio station. Somewhere along the way she also became a beadwork designer and teacher. She enjoys cooking recipes found in her formidable cookbook and culinary fiction collection. Searching for unique treasures at art fairs, flea markets and thrift stores is also a favorite pastime. Coffee is an essential part of her life.

“The hot sunshine made her feel like a salmon roasting on a cedar plank.”
“It felt like her body had been sprinkled with spicy, tingly, Szechuan pepper.”
“Carla would pounce on the admission like a feral cat on a roasted chicken.”
“…more unpleasant than a dozen deviled eggs left on a hot car all day.”
“…like batter covered chore devils perched on her shoulder.”
On and on they went throughout the entire book. I cannot recommend it to anyone except those who love culinary analogies with a little mystery thrown in.
*Three stars because the ending was refreshing – the heroine actually left it up to the police to catch the murderer instead of putting herself in peril as with so many other cozy endings
for the past five years, dead. Who hated Mary Jo enough to kill her? As Amy investigates,
she finds that many in town hated her due to Mary Jo using gossip to stir up trouble. Can
Amy find the killer even as she is being targeted and perhaps will be next?? Preview of the
second book in the series Chicken Soup and Homicide. First book in series. Must read.
