A fun culinary cozy not to miss. Hearty Homestyle Murder: Book 9 in The Darling Deli Series is packed with adventure and mystery as well as yummy food.
This book has Moira settling in with her daughter Candice's life and candy store. She is preparing for the county fair and the coveted soup competition. She is going to enter one of her employees recipes. She is excited to see who will win the little competition at the deli to go to the fair. She would really love to win this competition and be able to show off the ribbon and all the extra advertising.
Once the winner is chosen they head to the fair where the unexpected happens. Uuuggghhhh! One of the judges gets sick on the soup they enter. This causes Moira to start second guessing herself and her staff??? Who or why would anyone want to cause harm to a judge and ultimately her business?
So much is going on in this great series that I can't wait for the next book. Maple Creek is never dull!
