Although Leavensport is serving up affairs of the heart, there are a lot of mysterious activities lurking in the air. The townspeople awake to find freshly dug empty holes throughout the fields that were recently up for sale under suspicious circumstances. Jolie and Ava believe they are taking a break from solving murders when they start teaching an online cooking course–until they witness one of their students take a stake through the heart!

Welcome to Leavensport, OH, where DEATH takes a DELICIOUS turn!

Cast Iron Stake Through the Heart sees Jolie and Ave get caught up in yet another murder investigation, only this time they both see the murder happen right in front of them!
The girls have set up an online cooking course and whilst teaching their students they see a masked man enter and attack one of the girls, only it turned out to be her boyfriend playing a prank. Undoubtedly everyone was shaken up by it, and Jolie wanted to cut her from the class but the decided to give her another chance. This time when the ‘same’ masked man enters another students video frame, she ends up with a steak through the heart and this time it is all real and no prank!

This book was yet another great addition to the The Cast Iron Skillet Mystery Series, filled with murder, romance and of course delicious food! It was also a collaboration between Jodi Rath & Rebecca Grubb, and the book flowed flawlessly I had no idea who wrote what parts!

Cant wait to read the next instalment of this series, I am loving how Jolie is growing stronger as a person with each new book.

    Thanks, Fee, for the review! I love this series, too, and was beyond geeked when the amazing Jodi Rath offered to let me co-write one of the books with her! I have never had so much fun in my life. I hope everyone enjoys it!
