Prologue to Murder & The Superfood Alchemy Cookbook

 

I received both these titles in exchange for fair reviews from NetGalley.

Prologue to Murder is book 2 in the A Beyond the Page Mystery Series.  In this series, Addie Greystone has returned to her family’s home and opened a book shop and is living in the family manse.  There is a lot of history with the Greystones and other founding families in the town and not all of it is positive.  This makes for some tension and creates some difficulties for Addie in fitting into life in the town.  A murder, hidden treasures, secret tunnels and maps, pirates, a nasty gossip columnist, and a couple of love triangles all add to the story.  There is quite a bit going on here with several characters appearing quite rapidly.   A fun, quick mystery read.

The Superfood Alchemy Cookbook is an extraordinarily beautifully photographed cookbook organized by the health effects that various superfoods have on the body, for example “Reducing Blockages…”  a chapter focused on Berries, Bell Peppers, Ginger, etc.  and  “Focusing and Calming..”  Blueberries, Coffee, Chocolate, etc. The recipes included are simple to follow and include easily sourced ingredients.  The book also includes sections on essential oils, kitchen equipment, and meditation.  A good cookbook for people who want address health issues with diet or simply include more superfoods in their diet.
