Snow day this morning, so I had the opportunity to lay in bed and finish this lovely cozy mystery, Macaroni and Freeze, book 4 in the A Comfort Food Mystery Series. I have had this book on my shelf for a while but I have been in somewhat of a reading slump that I seem to be coming out of so I will head right into book 5.
In this book in the series, Trixie finds herself hosting a Cook Off fundraiser to benefit the town’s library. A celebrity chef checks into town to host the event, but doesn’t check out…alive at least. Trixie is once again embroiled in a murder case after literally stumbling on dead body. There are suspects with personal motives, professional motives and just old fashioned greed. Trixie and ACB traipse through the never ending snow interviewing suspects, tracking down clues and comparing stories trying to trap a killer without getting arrested by Ty in the process. There is a side plot dealing with Alzheimer’s and plagiarism that is well done as well. Anyone who has contributed to church, community or school cookbook’s would find that an interesting part of the plot.
Another well written outing in the A Comfort Food series!
