This is the first book I read in the Tory Bauer Mystery series and I see that I am reading them out of order. So I will start at the beginning because these books are little gems. I compare her style to Janet Evonovich for fun and intrigue. And they are set in South Dakota, my home state.

Recommends it for: no one. even mystery buffs
oh god. could I give this less than one star? why did I read it? I blame vacation & the beach. actually "read" is a loose term--the middle 100 pages are particularly unreadable, and the ending makes little sense. yes, there is sex, and salmonella, so the title does not false advertise. but let me suggest to any future publishers that these two things should never be combined, even for the sake of alliteration.
