A CORPSE IN THE SOUP by Morgan St. James and Phyllice Bradner is one of the funniest books I have ever read! I love the names of the characters – Godiva Olivia DuBois aka the advice columnist G.O.D, her twin sister, Goldie Silver, their mother, Flossie, Uncle Sterling Silver, Goldie’s daughter Chili Pepper, Biff Wellington, and Caesar Romano are very tongue in cheek. Both Biff and Caesar are chefs competing in the Gourmet Gladiator Competition. Chili is asked to be Caesar’s assistant when his previous assistant, Candy, leaves to become Biff’s assistant. When Caesar is arrested for Biff’s murder, Godiva and Goldie set out to prove his innocence. Not wanting to be left out, Flossie and Sterling, who played vaudeville, assist in the effort and come up with the clue that may free Caesar. Throughout the book, the characters blend well together and Morgan and Phyllice really know how to weave a story that readers will find delightful. Grab a copy – you won’t regret it!

Reviewed by Trudi LoPreto for Readers' Favorite A Corpse in the Soup: A Silver Sisters Mystery (Silver Sisters Mysteries) (Volume 1) written by Morgan St. James and Phyllice Bradner is a very different mystery story. Twins Goldie Silver and Godiva Olivia Dubois are the sleuths who get lots of help from their mother Flossie and their Uncle Sterling in solving crimes. Godiva is poisoned while attending Chef Romano’s cooking show. Chef believes that someone is trying to damage his image and is sabotaging his food; he believes that because the Gourmet Gladiator Tournament is coming up, Chef Biff Willington will do whatever it takes to be the winner. When Willington is found dead with a knife in his back and his face in a bowl of soup, Romano is the main suspect. The Silver Sisters are determined to prove his innocence, no matter what it takes. Flossie and Sterling attempt to find the killer and almost get themselves in big trouble while the twins face some scary moments before the case is closed. A Corpse in the Soup has characters that are funny, real and likeable.  The plot has many twists, turns and surprises. St. James and Bradner have written a fun, quirky, unpredictable and original mystery. A Corpse in the Soup had me laughing out loud, holding my breath in fear, rooting for Chef Romano’s name to be cleared and thinking several different people were the real killers throughout the book. The Silver Sisters moved to the top of my favorite sleuth list and I am anxiously awaiting their next mystery. A Corpse in the Soup has something for young and old and in-between readers, so don’t pass this one up – it is a winner.
