Two Bites Too Many (Sarah Blair Mystery #2) by Debra H. Goldstein

Two Bites Too Many (Sarah Blair Mystery #2)

Far from a domestic goddess, Sarah Blair would rather catch bad guys than slave over a hot stove. But when a dangerous murder boils over in Wheaton, Alabama, catching the killer means leaving her comfort zone ...

Things are finally looking up for Sarah Blair following her unsavory divorce. Settled into a cozy carriage house with her sassy Siamese cat, RahRah, she has somehow managed to hang on to her modest law firm receptionist job and--if befriending flea-bitten strays at the local animal shelter counts--lead a thriving social life. For once, Sarah almost has it together more than her enterprising twin, Emily, a professional chef whose efforts to open a gourmet restaurant have hit a real dead end ...

When the president of the town bank and city council is murdered after icing Emily's business plans, all eyes are on the one person who left the scene with blood on her hands--the Blair girls' sharp-tongued mother, Maybelle. Determined to get her mom off the hook ASAP, Sarah must collect the ingredients of a deadly crime to bring the true culprit to justice. But as neighbors turn against her family, can she pare down the suspects before another victim lands on the chopping block?

Includes quick and easy recipes!

"This smart cozy--full of heart and humor and surprises--has everything a mystery lover could ask for."
--Hank Phillippi Ryan, author of Trust Me   (Summary via Goodreads)

I thought things were intense when Sarah's twin sister Emily was accused of murder in One Taste Too Many, the first book in the Sarah Blair Mystery series by Debra H. Goldstein but when their mother is accused of murder in the second book.....OH BOY !!!!

Two Bites Too Many has Sarah trying to prove the innocence of one of her family members again !!  When Maybelle, Sarah and Emily's mother, is the last one to see the president of the bank alive, the chief of police places her at the top of the suspect list.   This puts Sarah is a very compromising position because she can not sit quietly and wait for the police to come to their senses.  And when Sarah's neighbor is attacked and Sarah and Maybelle are the ones to find him, Sarah will do whatever it takes to clear her mother's name.

Goldstein knows how to capture the readers attention immediately and she knows what to say, or write in this case, to keep the reader turning the page.  First Sarah's twin sister is accused of murder in the first book, then their mom in the second book, I can only imagine what is next for this family......Will Sarah find herself the next suspect of a murder ?? Is it bad of me to say that I hope so !!  Come on, you know she wouldn't do that even to her worse enemy....but to see her solve the case....yeah I'm ALL for that !!!

  1. Are three family members too many? Maybe - we'll have to wait until next September to know. In the meantime, Thank you for the kind review.
