A young chef might bite off more than she can chew when she returns to her Alaskan hometown to take over her parents’ diner in this charming first installment in a new cozy mystery series set in an Alaskan tourist town.
When Chef Charlie Cooke is offered the chance to leave San Francisco and return home to Elkview, Alaska, to take over her mother’s diner, she doesn’t even consider saying no. After all–her love life has recently become a Love Life Crumble, and a chance to reconnect with her roots may be just what she needs.
Determined to bring fresh life and flavors to the Bear Claw Diner, Charlie starts planning changes to the menu, which has grown stale over the years. But her plans are fried when her head cook Oliver turns up dead after a bitter and public fight over Charlie’s ideas–leaving Charlie as the only suspect in the case.
With her career, freedom, and life all on thin ice, Charlie must find out who the real killer is, before it’s too late.
Mousse and Murder is the first in the Alaskan Diner cozy mystery series and it was a fun exciting read. I really loved the setting being in Alaska, the small town community spirit that the characters have, the only thing was that we never got a chance to meet Oliver before his untimely death so I didn’t feel a strong connection with wanting to find out who did it, I didn’t have a clue who could have done it until one particular moment when something clicked and I thought ah ha! and it turns out my hunch was right.
As Charlie and her journalist friend Chris investigate Oliver’s death, they discover things they never knew about him and his life, which leads Charlie to questions how much really know of her employees at the cafe.
I think this is going to great little cozy mystery series and I can’t wait to see what is story for Charlie and sleepy Elkview, Alaska.
