Former reality TV baking show contestant and recent divorcĂ©e Hope Early is trying to find her recipe for success as a food blogger—but murder keeps getting in the mix . . .

When Hope’s elderly neighbor perishes in a home fire, she can't help but feel somewhat responsible. Only the day before, Peggy Olson had called her over, having burned a pot on the stove while she was sleeping and filling the house with smoke. In fact, she couldn't even remember cooking. Clearly, it was dangerous for the woman to live alone.

But it turns out she wasn't alone. When a second body is discovered in the basement of the burned house, suddenly what appeared to be a tragic accident is beginning to look like premeditated murder. As rumors spread like wildfire, Hope is determined to sort out the facts and smoke out a killer, but she might be jumping from the frying pan straight into the fire . . .

Includes Recipes from Hope’s Kitchen!

What I Thought:

This is the second in A Food Blogger Mystery series.  This installment of the series was just as good as the first installment.  In this one, Hope's elderly neighbor has, Peggy has perished in a house fire, and Hope feels a little responsible as Peggy told her about burning a pot on the stove the day before.  When a second body is found in Peggy's basement, it seems that the fires wasn't just a tragic accident but a premeditated murder.  Hope starts investigating and starts questioning some of the residents of town, making some angry with her.  I thought this book was well written, as was the first.  I enjoy reading about Hope and her job as a food blogger, that gets to be as interesting as the mystery.  The plot was very well thought out, and the story was fast paced. The author does a great job with describing the setting of this story, I actually felt like I was there.  There were twists and turns that left me guessing.

 I received a complimentary copy of this book.
