A Supper Club Mystery
review 1: This is definitely one of the best cozy series with foodies and dieters. This is the fourth in this Supper Club Mystery Series. A diverse group of Virginia townsfolk have decided to gather once a week to share their dieting experiences, but still wanting to enjoy good food. There's James - the librarian, Lucy - the new deputy sheriff, Gillian - the new age pet guru, Bennett - the postman, and Lindy - the school teacher. There are also some twin technical genius librarian assistants that help this group whenever they get caught up in solving mysteries. In this story, the Flab Five have become so famous from all their detecting skills, that the organizer of the 47th annual Hudsonville Hog Festival has asked them to come and judge the barbecue cooking contests. They're ... moregiven free room and board at the local B&B, plus free tickets to all the local events. How can they pass this up? Their dieting is going to take a hiatus while they enjoy the fun and food. They meet some interesting characters amongst the grillers. Especially one loud mouthed, barrel chested, griller who plans to win everything, thus getting himself a lucrative contract with a local meat packing plant. His food is terrific, but he has managed to offend just about everyone around him. So no big surprise, when he's found dead in his RV. But they are all surprised when one of their own is arrested for the murder.I love the quirky characters in these books. The receipts aren't so bad either. Stanley manages to keep suspense within her mysteries without bringing in any gore or foul language. There are actually two mysteries to solve within this yummy story. These books are hard to find, but they are definitely worth reading! Two more in this series, and would love to see Stanley take up writing some more Supper Club Mysteries after those. One of my favorites!
review 2: I'm hooked on this series. (Ok, I'm a little late to it; it's true.) Each book really sets the bar for enjoyable cozy-mystery reading. I've read them out of order, but they work well as stand-alones, and it's easy to slip into the characters' lives and the seasonal events in Quincy's Gap. The pacing is taut, the writing is great, the characters are witty and down-to-earth, and there's always a hair-raising plot twist. What more could you ask for? Throw in entertaining recipes and dishes, and you're set. less
