READ MY BOOK REVIEW
Cozy mystery books are my comfort reads! Whenever I want to get lost in something easy, breezy, and fun I generally pick up a cozy. Sometimes I go back to old series that I love (I’m slowly reading them because I don’t want them to end) and other times I grab a book from an author I’ve never read before like this one. Ellen Byron is a new to me author and I’m so thrilled to have finally read her books! I’ve heard her Cajun Country mysteries were really good so when I saw this one on netgalley I grabbed it! Like her other series, its set in New Orleans and showcases all the wonderful food, historical venues, and charm. In particular though it mainly focuses on the main characters new business venture of opening a gift shop with vintage cookbooks and cookware. I’ve never read something like this and was really intrigued by all the cool things she found and used in her shop!
Readers of Bayou Book Thief can also be sure that they’ll get an intriguing mystery out of the story with a set of interesting side characters and a killer who is hard to figure out! Personally, I wasn’t even thinking about who the killer actually was because I was so mesmerized by the setting and our MC Ricki, so it shocked me when he or she was revealed! Now that’s great writing!
If you’re a cozy mystery reader, then this is a must read to add to your list of books! I’m so excited to follow Ricki and the gang in the next book, Wined and Died in New Orleans which releases on February 7, 2023! While I hate to wait that long I think it’ll be worth it!
