A Food Critic’s Review to Die For
Everyone’s trying the food fair serrated knife, perfect for slicing, serving, and . . . murder?
Hanna Denton has a lot to prove after taking over The Upper Crust, her grandmother’s California pie shop. And the Crystal Cove Food Fair is the perfect place to entice new customers. When local food critic Heath Barr serves up detestable reviews of Hanna’s pies—not to mention his burning comments about other vendors, too—she’s outraged, but she never imagined he’d be murdered. Now Hanna is drawing the worst kind of attention from police chief Sam Genovese, her former high school flame. Can she work through the doughy mess and discover the true killer, or will Hanna do all her future baking behind bars?
Includes scrumptious recipes you’ll love, from Double Chocolate Cream Pie to Butterscotch Pecan Pie.
