Leaving behind a failed career as a magazine editor and an embarrassing stint on a reality baking show, newly divorced lifestyle entrepreneur Hope Early thought things were finally on the upswing—until she comes face-to-face with a murderer . . .
Hope’s schedule is already jam packed with recipe testing and shameless plugs for her food blog as she rushes off to attend a spring garden tour in the charming town of Jefferson, Connecticut. Unfortunately, it isn’t the perfectly arranged potted plants that grab her attention—it’s the bloody body of reviled real estate agent Peaches McCoy . . .
One of the tour guests committed murder, and all eyes are on Hope’s older sister, Claire Dixon—who, at best, saw Peaches as a professional rival. And suspicions really heat up when another murder occurs the following night. Now, with two messy murders shaking Jefferson and all evidence pointing to Claire, Hope must set aside her burgeoning brand to prove her sister’s innocence. But the closer she gets to the truth, the closer she gets to a killer intent on making sure her life goes permanently out of style . . .
Includes Recipes from Hope’s Kitchen!

What I Thought:

This was a great start to a new series.  I had a little trouble at first keeping all the different characters separate as we are introduced to most of them in the first part of the book.  It was interesting to read about a blogger as that is something you do not see much of in books.  I thought the book was well written and flowed well.  The plot was well thought out and believable.  There was no shortage of suspects and as I said we were introduced to them in the first part of the book.  Hope has to try to prove her sister is not the killer, when all signs point to her as the main suspect.  There were many twists and turns that kept me guessing and I was surprised by the ending.

I received a complimentary copy of this book.
