The Iowa Presidential Caucus is a casserole of finest ingredients—policy ideas, active candidates, determined local politicians dedicated political activists, and hard-working Iowans. Every four years citizens across the state meet to hash out their differences and make a selection. Seldom is one candidate an overwhelming caucus choice. Instead, several winning candidates combine into a single dish of patriotic participation, ready to share with the rest of the nation.

In Lake Livonia, with holiday season fast approaching and the Iowa Presidential Caucus soon to follow, Susan Stewart’s fledgling Potluck Paradise Cafe is humming with the creation of new and delicious dishes to please the appetites of her community.

But then, a mysterious note included in a Christmas card from her friend and mentor, Hazel Romer, who skipped town in the middle of a July night, raises important questions. What was the skeleton in Hazel’s closet that caused her to run away from the town she loved? And why had she left the restaurant to Susan?

When a blizzard traps strangers in town overnight, the stage is set for a series of life-changing events for Susan, her teenaged children, and her friends, as the Presidential Caucus brings Iowa and Lake Livonia into national prominence.

With 30 Family and Potluck Pleasing recipes for main dishes, vegetables and desserts.

REVIEW

This was a short but enjoyable read, I had no idea what a Caucus was until I read this book, hailing from the UK we don’t have something like this, so from my perspective it was an educational read into American Politics as well as being a filled with some truly amazing recipes and a great sense of community spirit.

There is no real mystery to solve per say in terms of a murder in this book, it is more about skeletons in people closets coming to light. Susan Stewart has been left the Hamburger Heaven cafe by her mentor Hazel Romer – who basically did a moonlight flit one night putting Susan in charge of the cafe.

I loved the small town setting, southern charm and all the characters, the only thing I wish was it was longer! Eighmey did a great job packing a ton of information into this short book and look forward to reading more for her.

4 stars
