LET'S GET COZY! DEATH OF A CRABBY COOK: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
DEATH OF A CRABBY COOK
A Food Festival Mystery
BY PENNY PIKE

ABOUT THE BOOK:
First in a new series!

At the San Francisco Seafood Festival, someone is steamed enough to kill a cook....

When restaurant reviewer Darcy Burnett gets served a pink slip from the San Francisco Chronicle, she needs to come up with an alternative recipe for success quickly. Her feisty aunt Abby owns a tricked-out school bus, which she’s converted into a hip and happening food truck, and Darcy comes aboard as a part-timer while she develops a cookbook project based on recipes from food fests in the Bay Area.

But she soon finds someone’s been trafficking in character assassination—literally—when a local chef turns up dead and her aunt is framed for the murder. The restaurant chef was an outspoken enemy of food trucks, and now Darcy wonders if one of the other vendors did him in. With her aunt’s business—and freedom—on the line, it’s up to Darcy to steer the murder investigation in the right direction and put the brakes on an out-of-control killer….

RECIPES INCLUDED!

Kelly Blackwell @ Heres My Take On It said...

I am a fan of food trucks, but more so of cozy mysteries, and to be honest, I love the idea of leaving one career and hopping into a new plan (even if it involves writing a cookbook, serving at a food truck and solving crimes). :) Please include me.

Thanks!

I was stoked to find that Penny has some library mysteries that are used for library fund raisers. What a great way for friends of the library to support their local library!
