This is the first book in the new Haley Powell Food and Cocktails Mystery mystery series. Hayley Powell is a great main character. She is a single mother who works for on of the local papers in Bar Harbor, ME. When she asks for a raise her boss offers to pay extra if she will write a food column. Her column is immediately popular and Karen Appelbaum, the food writer from the other paper, does not take Hayley's entrance kindly. When Karen is murdered Hayley's is the main suspect. The book is fun, the story interesting, the characters well drawn and fun. There is even a small love interest that may lead somewhere. I loved the recipes and the sorbet one is a keeper. Great result for a new series.
