    Well rounded mystery!

    Review by Jen:
    Cooking Up Murder is Miranda Bliss' debut novel and the first in A Cooking Class Mystery series.

    Annie still hasn't completely gotten over he ex-husband, who left her for the dry cleaner, and she's put love on the back burner. In an effort to get Annie out of the house and back into society, Eve enrolls the both of them in a cooking class. Annie doesn't want to go because she can't even boil water without catastrophic events occurring.

    On the first night of class, Annie and Eve see a fellow student arguing with a man who later turns up dead. The girls decide they can solve the murder more efficiently than the police and begin their own investigation.

    Ms. Bliss has created a humorous story with delightful characters. I found myself with a smile on my face as I watched Annie and Eve in their attempts to play detectives. I enjoyed the story and felt that the mystery was well-rounded and character development complete. I'm looking forward to future installments of this series.

    I'm Hooked or is that COOKED!!?

    Great story! The characters were fabulous and the story was thrilling. I'm becoming a food fiction junkie and this is fantastic. I'll definitely be reading the consecutive books. I can't wait to try the recipes!

    Nice light read

    This was a fun read!! I really liked the idea of a cooking class with two very hilarious funny ladies featured. Naturally, the reader knows where this is going, especially when you find out what kind of a sidekick Eve is. Annie is a fun to read character, she¿s come out of a divorce and she¿s a disastrous cook. She has her own kind of natural charm, and I like how she is the opposite of what Eve is (sexy, a little on the airhead side, filled with plastic surgeries and possibly lipos). However Eve¿s got her charm too - even though I found her at times a little too annoying and airheaded. It does provide for a lot of the comedy though, although I think her stupidity sometimes rubs off on Annie too. The suspect list for this one wasn¿t so large, which isn¿t so bad. You aren¿t really kept guessing as to who the culprit is. The case itself was not the best, and not the most exciting, but I think how Eve and Annie investigate really makes up for this as they¿re always bound for disaster and it¿s quite entertaining to read. The ending for this case wasn¿t the best I¿ve read. But nevertheless I thought it was all right. I do feel happy for Annie at the end, though. The recipes in the back are worth a try, and they do look really good (have not tried it myself). However I¿m willing to go for the next book only to be entertained with their antics and to see which disaster they¿ll meet up with next! Fans of cozy mysteries will like this one, it¿s a light right and easy to breeze through.

    The last year has not been a good one for thirty-five years old Arlington, Virginia bank teller Anne Capshaw. Her husband of eight years left her for the bimbo who works at the dry cleaners and her self-esteem is at an all time low. Her cooking skills, never much to begin with, hit rock bottom when she tries to boil water and ruins the pot. Her best friend Eve enrolls both of them at a cooking class at the upscale Tres Bonne Cuisine. On the first night of class, Annie and Eve witness an argument between fellow student Beyla and a man named Drago. Later that night when they return to the classroom to find the watch Eve left behind they discover Drago¿s dead body in the parking lot. They call the police the girlfriend of Eve¿s former boyfriend is the responding officer. Beyla denies ever knowing Drago even though they both witnessed the fight and locate a picture in the newspaper of them together. When Eve¿s ex-fiancé talks to the class to find out if they know anything he also tells Eve to butt out of the investigation because he believe Beyla didn¿t know the murdered victim. That is enough to propel Annie and Eve into high gear not realizing that will put their lives in danger. --- This charming serio-comic amateur sleuth investigation is the first cooking class mystery and readers will love it due in part to the protagonists, who are great friends and surprisingly realistic detectives. They follow the clues where they take them and although the pair takes chances, they are calculated ones so the audience believes they could do such an investigation. Miranda Bliss lives up to her surname as she writes a blissful who-done-it that is filled with some very funny scenes and characters who care about each other. --- Harriet Klausner
