Overview

Jordan McAllister can't cook her way out of a macaroni & cheese box, but filling in for the culinary reporter at The Ranchero Globe is better than writing personal ads. Her first assignment to review the new steakhouse in town is a disaster that ends with her waiter murdered outside her door-with her name and number in his pocket. Now Jordan is the prime suspect, as well as the main course on the murder menu.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Aspiring sportswriter Jordan McAllister settles for taking on a restaurant review column job for the local newspaper in this lighthearted ensemble cozy. Her lack of culinary skills or food appreciation takes on new relevance when the foie gras she orders leads to a murderous plot. Something happened in the restaurant she's writing up—but what? In quick order, the good-looking waiter is stabbed to death in her apartment complex, her place is trashed, and random attacks escalate. Her big-hearted (this is Texas, after all) and offbeat neighbors—including a retired cop—all lend a helping hand in this cheerful foray. VERDICT A secondary plot about sports and anger management interweaves nicely with the primary action and strengthens this engaging series debut. Jordon's personality and supporting cast suggest a winning season ahead. Plenty of recipes, including one involving the iconic Hostess Ho Hos.
