    I love all of the Fresh Baked Mysteries

    Livia Washburn is a great mystery writer her books hold your attention and make you want to finish and read more I was so disapointed when I finish Killer Crab Cakes and found out there are no more in the series yet. Come on Livia write more the characters are great I think Phyliss and Sam are a great couple and need to get more serious. Eve is to blah but funny and carolyn is a hoot keep them ooming

    more from this reviewer

    Fans will enjoy Livia J. Washburn's latest culinary homicide investigation

    Her cousin Dorothy asks retired teacher Phyllis Newsom to manage her Oak Knoll Bed and breakfast in Fulton, Texas while she and her husband are in Dallas for the birth of their grandchild, the widow considers saying no as she knows nothing about a B&B. However Dorothy mentions the annual Rockport Just Desserts Competition so Phyllis says yes. Three other retired teachers, Sam Fletcher, Carolyn Wilbarger and Eve Turner join Carolyn j in the cooking contest, as she and Phyllis always enjoy competing against one another.

    Sam and Phyllis go fishing off the nearby pier. Already there is grouchy B&B guest Ed McKenna. Sam taps Ed on the back and the man tumbles into the water. Ed jumps in immediately and though he struggles gets Ed to the shore. However Ed is dead and later the autopsy affirms he was murdered. Assistant Police of Chief Abby Clifton and Police Chief Dale Clifton suspect Sam and when more murders come to the Oak Knoll B&B now being notoriously dubbed "The Murder House"; Phyliss, who vowed no murder investigations by her on this trip, begins to investigate.

    The forth Newsom amateur sleuth (see A PEACH OF A MURDER and THE CHRISTMAS COOKIE KILLER) is a wonder "fresh baked" mystery as Phyliss tries to stay out of the latest SLICE OF MURDER, but cannot as Sam is the prime suspect. KILLER CRAB CAKES is an entertaining whodunit starting with Sam's gentle pat on the back that has the related cops hone in on him and the other retires. With light bantering and recipes as Phyliss and Carolyn compete in a heated cooking rivalry between BFFs, fans will enjoy Livia J. Washburn's latest culinary homicide investigation.

    a wonderful book to read!!!!!

    as usual, I love these books, feel like I know these people and each one of the books I fell in love with.. it also shows that older people still have some get up and go and still love to interact with the younger generation..hate putting these books down, keeps my interest and takes me away from everyday humdrum.. hope livia keeps putting more of these books out...
