When the second book of the Gourmet Popcorn Shop series starts we find Rebecca, owner of POPS, getting ready to work with her ex-husband to feature her shop on his TV show. And while she isn't quite sure how she feels about her ex popping into her life, she knows that she can't pass up the publicity that his show can bring her shop and, in turn, her checkbook. However, when she stumbles upon the death of his assistant and her ex husband becomes the number one suspect, Rebecca shockingly steps up to help Antoine clear his name.

The plot of the story was well thought out and well written, Even though I figured out who the killer was early on in the story, it in no way ruined the book for me. The true stars of this series are indeed the characters. The dialog between them pops with humor and bite. Rebecca is a wonderfully written lead character who jumps into investigating in a thoughtful and determined intelligent way. You will not be sorry you picked up this book. When you are done devouring the entertaining story, jump to the back of the book to find the recipes and dig into the yumminess that only popcorn can provide!
