Summary

Summary

When Hope's elderly neighbor perishes in a home fire, she can't help but feel somewhat responsible. Only the day before, Peggy Olson had called her over, having burned a pot on the stove while she was sleeping and filling the house with smoke. In fact, she couldn't even remember cooking. Clearly, it was dangerous for the woman to live alone. But it turns out she wasn't alone. When a second body is discovered in the basement of the burned house, suddenly what appeared to be a tragic accident is beginning to look like premeditated murder. As rumors spread like wildfire, Hope is determined to sort out the facts and smoke out a killer, but she might be jumping from the frying pan straight into the fire . . . Includes Recipes from Hope's Kitchen!

Library Journal Review

The disappearance of Lily Barnhart, a member of the Planning & Zoning committee, has everyone in town buzzing, but food blogger Hope Early has other worries. Her elderly neighbor Peggy begs for help-she doesn't want her daughter to know that she fell asleep with a pan on the stove that set off the smoke alarm. When Hope later finds Peggy's house on fire, she regrets she never mentioned Peggy's memory issues. But, there are two bodies found in the house. Although the police chief and the investigating detective both warn Hope not to get involved, she's naturally nosy and -encouraged by a retired mystery author, who asks a few too many questions for the comfort of some powerful people. A warning nailed to her front door angers her, but she still persists. While the recipes are enticing, and the food blogger and photography information interesting, Hope's attitude alienates her from even her best friends in this weak mystery. VERDICT While The Uninvited Corpse showed a great deal of promise, the characters are much weaker in this second series entry. Not a necessary purchase.-Lesa Holstine, Evansville Vanderburgh P.L., IN © Copyright 2019. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
