    Reviewed by Alice DiNizo for Readers' Favorite

    Chris Cavender has written several mysteries centered around pizza, a food favored by many readers and non-readers everywhere. And now the author has created "Killer Crust" which features Eleanor Swift who runs "Slice of Delight", a pizza parlor in Timber Ridge, North Carolina, with the help of her sister Maddy Spencer. Eleanor and Maddie are invited to participate in Laughing Luigi's pizza dough contest at the local Timber Ridge luxury hotel, Tree-Line. Luigi, hardly known for any laughs at all, owns the Laughing Luigi's Frozen Pizza Dough business which is well-known in the southern United States. The grand prize of this pizza dough contest is $25,000 which even after taxes is enough for Eleanor to redo and modernize "Slice of Delight". There are four pizza making contests who agree to use Laughing Luigi's dough while making their contest pizzas: Eleanor and Maddie,Jeff and Sandy Clarke from "Grinning Cat Pizzeria" in Asheville, Kenny Anderson and his helper, Anna Wright, from "Pizza Top" in Charlotte, and Reggie and Todd Blackwell from their "pizza Pie Factory" in Raleigh. Eleanor overhears someone fighting with Luigi whose name is really George Vincent. And then Laughing Luigi is murdered. Was winning this contest worth killing him or is there something else going on?

    "Killer Crust" is a fun-to-read mystery as sisters Eleanor Swift and Maddie Spencer track down Luigi's killer. Eleanor, Maddie, their intendeds Bob and David, Gina who runs the front desk at Tree-Line for her uncle, policeman Kevin Hurley, and all the characters involved, both major and minor, are believable and fit into the storyline quite well. The plot's twists and turns and the dialogue among the characters all suit "Killer Crust" quite well. Readers who love mysteries will want to put "Killer Crust" on their reading lists and a pizza on their kitchen counters for a between-chapters snack.

    Killer Crust by Chris Cavender
    Sisters Maddie and Ellie run A Slice of Delight Pizzeria. One of their arch enemies Laughing Luggi has given them a chance to win 25k by competing against others at the new resort in town to promote his company and the new resort, Timber Ridge.
    There are many stipulations and others have been cheated out of even competing. They must spend a few days at the resort, his expense but their boyfriend and lawyer husband Bob can join them at meals. They've met the other 3 couples who are all from NC also.
    When Luigi gets murdered and the contest will continue they are asked by Kevin the cop to help solve the mystery. They had prior knowledge to a lot by just talking to others at meal time and before going to their rooms. They move into one of the luxury rooms as it has 2 bedrooms and they can compare notes and go about their next task.
    They are also able to get help from Gina who they know from the area and her uncle has financed the huge luxury resort for her to run.
    Many others think the contest is rigged and others think the judges have been paid off. They learn much with help from others and find themselves in digger than they could ever imagine...
    Recipes at the end. First book I've read by Chris and I can't wait to read more of them.
