Posted by Jennifer in 5 Stars, Blog Tour, Cozy Mystery, Reviews / 1 Comment


Things heat up for bookstore owner Jenna Hart in the latest Cookbook Nook mystery from the Agatha Award-winning author of Fudging the Books.

As the Wild West Extravaganza rides into Crystal Cove, California, Cookbook Nook store owner Jenna Hart is ready to indulge her appetite for grilled and barbecued treats and maybe even try the Texas skip. But when the body of one of her father’s neighbors is found the next morning smoldering in a bonfire, the rodeo revelry is extinguished.

Sylvia Gump had acquired plenty of enemies with her practice of illegally encroaching on her neighbors’ properties—including Jenna’s dad, who was off fishing by himself and has no alibi for the murder. Now it’s up to Cary Hart’s dutiful daughter to clear his name before the real killer turns up the heat and rakes someone else over the coals…

Review of Grilling The Subject

Review (4.5 Stars):  I absolutely love this series!!! Jenna is preparing for the Wild West Extravaganza while her father, Cary, is dealing with an obnoxious neighbor that is planning to take over everything while intruding on her neighbor’s property.  When this troublesome neighbor is found dead during a fire, Cary becomes the prime suspect and it is up to Jenna to help clear her father’s name.  With a long list of suspects, Jenna definitely has her work cut out for her.

This is one of my favorite mystery series!  Grilling the Subject was charming and entertaining with a well-written storyline that kept me on the edge of my seat.  I loved the humor that was laced throughout this story and Jenna is always a joy to spend time with.  Can’t wait to see what happens next for Jenna and the rest of the lovely residents of Crystal Cove.
