Like a luxurious foot massage, a huge mug of hot chocolate with a mountain of whip cream or your favorite glass of Pinot Grigio on a Friday after a grueling work week, Death of a Kitchen Diva, by Lee Hollis takes you to your happy place.
The Christmas season in Bar Harbor, ME, has Hayley Powell, office manager and food columnist at the Island Times newspaper, making her fifth appearance in the cozy culinary mystery series (Death of a Chocoholic). Hayley is busy holiday shopping for her teenage kids, trying to figure out her love life, and using her ex-husband’s exploits as fodder for her column. Agreeing to help a local caterer in order to earn some extra money, Hayley is shocked to find him dead in his kitchen, which means it’s time for some amateur sleuthing. VERDICT A fun Christmas cozy that includes food and cocktail recipes from the brother-and-sister team who write together under the pen name Hollis.
Delicious and satisfying. Another course, please.
