Another delicious murder mystery! Hannah has become a cooking judge in front of a live audience. She is also given her few minutes of fame before each contest begins by baking a recipe and sharing it with the viewers.

One of the judges has to back out at the last minute due to a dental emergency, so the station has to have another person randomly choosen to be a judge on such short notice. They draw the name Boyd Watson. A basketball coach at the local high school where they are filming the baking contest.

It's a rather interesting mystery surrounding Boyd Watson's murder. Secrets are kept in this small town with someone blackmailing almost each and everyone. Hannah finds herself in more trouble than she bargins for when she promises the wife Danielle that she would help prove she is innocent since the new cop and her brother in lasw are pretty much not looking for another suspect and she is their main target.

I could not put this book down, it was a wonderful read. Without spoiling the book, there was one part in particular where I could not read fast enough. The first person that I felt was the killer and then changed my mind, I should have stuck with my initial instinct as I would have been correct. This book had me laugh out loud a few times because of the silly puns, or because of an insult coming from one of the characters when you had not expected it.

I am really getting sucked into this series and will have to look at getting the recipe book that was just released this month since all of them seem so tasty.

If you're ready for a good read that will have you on the edge of your seat, can't stop turning the pages even though you sould be making dinner or going to sleep, and have a sweet tooth this is the book for you.
