I looked forward to reading this book because I "know" the author. The story keeps you wondering not only who the murderer is but is it a male or female? I enjoyed the read and would buy another book if there is one.

Celebrity Chef Billy Blessing runs the popular Manhattan Lower East Side Blessings Bistro although he would be the first to admit he does not cook that often anymore. He also performs cooking segments with the joke of the day on the TV show Wake Up, America! Chef Blessing has just begun torturous filming of Blessing's in the Kitchen with Food School 101 starring apprentices who look more like exiles from a Sci fi fast food show than cooks. Although he would like to quit, his producer Lily Conover counts the ways he cannot as Di Voss Industries is sponsoring him. His former "Knock Boots" partner Gretchen Di Voss and her fiancé Rudy Gallagher watch his every move. His nodding "advice" to morning show co-anchor Gin McCauley leads to fifteen million reasons why Billy should lose his cooking shows. Soon after a public argument with Rudy, NYPD Detectives Solomon and Butker inform Billy he is the prime suspect in the murder of Gallagher who died eating poisoned coq au vin at Blessing's Bistro which is closed as a crime scene. Realizing he is being set up like a cooked goose for the holidays, Billy investigates. THE MORNING SHOW MURDERS is a delightful amateur sleuth mystery that works due to the strong cast who bring New York City alive with their crisp sassy discourses especially the tale's lead chef. The story line is fast-paced from the moment Billy realizes he is host of a show that will give him plenty of heartburn and that is before he is the prime stuffed turkey of NYPD. Fans will enjoy the collaboration of Al Roker & Dick Lochte as they serve to fans a gourmet murder mystery. Harriet Klausner

JUST OK THE SAILOR TYPE OF LANGUAGE HURTS THIS MURDER MYSTERY WHICH AT TIMES DRAGS ON AND ON OVER 60+ CHAPTERS AL AND HIS GHOST WRITER CUT TO THE MEAT OF THE BOOK PLEASE.....

The teaming of loveable TV weatherman Al Roker and veteran crime novelist Dick Lochte (author of the award-winning "Sleeping Dog") has resulted in an irresistible mystery novel about Billy Blessing, a famous chef and restaurateur who also is one of the co-hosts on a morning news show, sort of a combination of Emeril or Wolfgang Puck and Roker himself. When his show's producer is murdered just days after they've had a verbal blowup - by takeout from his restaurant - Billy becomes the NYPD's only viable suspect. Since the police are spending all their efforts looking for evidence that will sink him, Billy realizes it's up to him to find a better suspect before he's put under arrest. The result is a suspenseful, at times hilarious comedy thriller that I hope marks the beginning of a series featuring the charming Billy. Five stars.

Never realized Al had it in him to write such an enjoyable book! Not Agatha, but keeps you interested and his humor is great. Getting his Midnight Murder after finishing book I'm reading now. Hope he writes more of these.
