Cold Cut Murder: Book Three in The Darling Deli Series by Patti Benning

Cold Cut Murder by Patti Benning

The Winter Festival is in full swing as the town of Maple Creek prepares for Valentine's Day. Moira is chilled to the bone after discovering a body in her shop, and a frosty relationship develops between the deli owner and a new competitor in town, whose husband has a roving eye. ( Summary via Goodreads)

I am hooked on this series. It is well written and fast paced. Packed full of mystery, good food, and murder.

Moira is preparing for The Winter Festival in Maple Creek and is busy, busy, busy! She and her friend Martha notice a man that seems to becoming a regular. Moira has a feeling about this guy that has her unnerved. Especially after he asks her to the Valentines dance and she turns him down. Creepy!!! 

She is excited when Denise Donovan from The Redwood Grill comes in to introduce herself and invites she and Candice to the grand opening. They go and love the food! After her busy day and evening she goes to bed only to wake up the next day to a dead food critic in her deli. And things go from bad to worse when two more attacks occur and the common denominator is Moira! Thank goodness David installed a security system. But was it soon enough to save the next victim???

These books are so much fun to read. I love how each of the characters are evolving throughout the series. I can't wait to read the next adventure in The Darling Deli series.
