Once again Linda Wiken has dished up another great mystery with Roux the Day, the second book in the Dinner Club Mystery series! When we begin the story, J.J. Tanner is working on a casino fund-raising event for a non-profit charity aboard a cruise boat on Champlain. To make the event smashing, she has brought in DJ Connor Mac and TV personality Miranda Myers. However, when Miranda is found dead, old friend Connor Mac gets placed front and center as the number one murder suspect. J.J. again finds herself in the middle of a murder mystery and needs to find the murderer before Connor goes down for murder, or worse, she herself ends up on the chopping block.

Once again, I was instantly enamored with this book for the beautiful cover, but I also loved the entire cast of the Dinner Club characters! The characters are fun-loving and well written and they stick together. I am still waiting for my invitation to one of their monthly Culinary Capers dinners! Linda did another fabulous job of scripting a nice, delicious little mystery, which I again thoroughly enjoyed reading. Everything about this series is wonderful. My only complaint is that I get so engrossed that I end up reading them way too fast! Don't forget to check the back of the book for some delicious recipes to try in your own kitchen! I can't wait to see what is next for J.J. and her band of Culinary Capers in Marinating in Murder, which you can read an excerpt of in the back of the book!
