The dog days of summer have arrived in the small town of Frog Ledge, Connecticut, and business is booming for Kristan “Stan” Connor. Her Pawsitively Organic pet food has even caught the attention of celebrity pastry chef Sheldon Allyn, who helps Stan open a fancy pet pastry shop in Frog Ledge. A partnership is born, and Sheldon invites Stan to Newport, Rhode Island, for an appreciation weekend he’s hosting for all his independent chefs. But the gourmet getaway turns sour when one of the chefs turns up dead, and a second one goes missing…
As Stan tries to figure out who had a recipe for murder, the pool of suspects expands. And if she can’t sniff out the culprit soon, this killer may just serve up a second helping of murder…
Includes Gourmet Pet Food Recipes
What I Thought:

I always enjoy visiting Stan and all her quirky friends in Frog Ledge, but this time, Stan is in Newport, RI for a chefs convention.  What could possibly go wrong?  Well as is Stan's luck, she finds a body, of course, even though she didn't know the victim, she has to get involved.  Stan meets some eccentric characters from the food world is this fast-paced cozy.  She longs to go home to Frog Ledge, but feels she has to stay the course.  This one will keep you one the edge of your seat.  There is a lot going on including a trip to NYC, a catnapping, a surprise investor for Stan's patisserie, some infidelity, and of courses a lot of food.  It will also keep you guessing and ends with a total surprise reveal.  I look forward to more in this series and look forward, as I am sure there are more great stories to come.

I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review.


About This Author

Liz Mugavero has been writing stories since she could hold a pen. Before that, she would tell them to anyone who would listen (not many at the time). After deciding early on she would write books for a living, she practiced by writing bad, angst-filled poems, short stories and even a storyline for a soap opera–all by age 15. She never wavered from her goals despite all the usual questions including, “So are you going to be an English teacher with that degree in English?” or, “That writing thing sounds nice, but how are you REALLY going to make a living?”
She went on to get a master’s in writing and publishing and spent time in journalism, PR, and presently, corporate communications. And she’s confident this writing thing IS the way to make a living.
Aside from writing, she loves animals (has a houseful), the beach, reading other writers’ masterpieces and Starbucks coffee.
