The Statue of Liberty is 130 years old, and for the struggling residents of Hubbard, Ohio, any opportunity to bring in tourists is reason enough for a celebration. Laurel Inwood and her aunt, Sophie, are pitching in. Sophie’s Terminal at the Tracks, a former greasy spoon turned charming ethnic eatery, will be offering French cuisine for the entire week.
For expert help with their quiche and escargot, the ladies turn to Raquel “Rocky” Arnaud, a former French chef and friend of Sophie. What looks like a match made in heaven turns rank as quickly as buttermilk on a summer’s day. Rocky turns up dead and when her nightly red wine shows notes of oak, cinnamon, and poison, Laurel turns from soufflé to sleuth.

Review of French Fried
Review (4 Stars); This is the second book in the Ethnic Eats mystery series and I’m a big fan of culinary mysteries. Laurel and Sophie are featuring French cuisine for the celebration of the Statue of Liberty at their restaurant, Terminal at the Tracks. When their friend, Rocky, is found murdered, it is up Laurel to find a killer before it is too late.
French Fried was a very entertaining mystery and I love spending time with Laurel in this fun mystery series. This mystery was well-written and delightful with the right amount of food descriptions to make your mouth water. Can’t wait to read book number three in the series to see what adventures Laurel and Sophie find themselves in next.
