Georgia hosts the annual Farm Family Fare and Eva Knox of
Knox Plantation is right in the thick of things. It is a jam-packed
weekend, with events including tours, exhibitions, music,
tastings and more. There are celebrity chefs appearing with
cooking demonstrations. The Chow Network is on hand as the
celebrity chefs are from their station.
Master Chef Slick Simmer is murdered, his body found by Eva
and Precious Darling in a refrigerated truck. Since this isn’t
Eva’s first go around with murder, the phrase “magnet
for disaster” with which Sheriff Buck Tanner has described
her sure seems to fit. Eva’s sister Daphne is in the
hot-seat as a suspect when it is learned that she spent the
night before with Slick, leading Eva, Precious, and Eva and
Daphne’s other sister, Pip to dig for clues. They are
pressed for time as Daphne’s arrest seems in the offing,
and there is still a killer on the loose!
with humor and Southern charm, this is a mystery you can’t
help but love. The mystery itself is well crafted and I didn’t
even come close to solving the crime! Kelly Lane has a wonderfully
detailed literary imagination and doesn’t miss a beat
when it comes to infusing her characters with perfectly flawed
human traits. Highly recommended!
