Overview

A sports writing job would have been the perfect catch for Jordan McAllister, but in Ranchero, Texas, all she could reel in was the food column. Though she may not know her way around a kitchen, she has no trouble finding herself in a kettle of fish…


Tempted by the offer of a free Caribbean cruise, Jordan accepts a spot as a judge in a week-long big-time cooking competition aboard the Carnation Queen. She just better hope no one finds out that her famous palate is far from refined.


But there are bigger fish to fry when arrogant chef Stefano Mancini falls face first into his signature halibut dish during the first event. While evidence suggests that the handsome Italian chef’s death was an accident, Jordan thinks otherwise. But she’ll have to keep her wits about her—and the sea sickness pills handy—if she’s going to solve this one…

    Homosexual reference within the first 4 paragraphs. It appears

    Homosexual reference within the first 4 paragraphs. It appears to me that these Editors have an agenda. I am really tired of trying to find a good cozy without Homosexual references. I refuse to even continue to read the rest of this book. It is in the trash as far as I am concerned. I prefer warnings on books that have that sort of thing. I am really sick of getting this stuff shoved down my throat when I just want to read a clean and fun story.

    A sports writing job would have been the perfect catch for Jordan McAllister, but in Ranchero, Texas, all she could reel in was the food column. Though she may not know her way around a kitchen, she has no trouble finding herself in a kettle of fish…

    Tempted by the offer of a free Caribbean cruise; Jordan accepts a spot as a judge in a week-long big-time cooking competition aboard the Carnation Queen. She just better hope no one finds out that her famous palate is far from refined.

    But there are bigger fish to fry when arrogant chef Stefano Mancini falls face first into his signature halibut dish during the first event. While evidence suggests that the handsome Italian chef’s death was an accident, Jordan thinks otherwise. But she’ll have to keep her wits about her—and the sea sickness pills handy—if she’s going to solve this one…

    My thoughts on the book:
    When Jordon is tapped to replace one of the food tasting judges on a cruise sponsored by a local radio station she is only looking at the opportunity for some fun in the sun. But before she can get on the cruise ship she is taking part in a fishing trip with the chefs. The chef who pulls in the largest fish will gain points during the cook-off. So of course Jordon somehow lands the biggest fish of the trip and also gets hit on by one of the sleazy members of the group.
    As the group boards the ship for the cruise, little does Jordon know how the bodies will pile up and the most unlikely of suspects takes the forefront. Jordon and her friends will have to stay on their toes to see this cruise and cook off to the end.

    FTC Full Disclosure: I received this book from the author, who only requested a fair and impartial review.

    Another home run for this author. Murder For The Halibut brings back Jordan and her quirky crew for another "can't be missed" mystery! There is NO wonder why this is my favorite cozy series.

But she’ll have to keep her wits about her—and the sea sickness pills handy—if she’s going to solve this one…








    This third installment of the Clueless Cooks Mystery is the best one yet. We escape to the Caribbean on a cruise with fantastic food, the characters we have grown to love, and culinary mystery that will keep you entertained from the first page to the last. This story is absolutely hilarious. Caution: Do not eat or drink anything while you are reading about the appetizer portion of the competition.  I will be sending my laundry bill to the author 




    As one of the worst cooks ever and a very picky eater I identify with Jordan very easily. Of course I am extremely jealous because I have never been on a cruise but hopefully someday I will be able to cross that off my bucket list.




    Famous chef George Christakis, on the cruise to judge the cooking competition, quickly became by favorite character. Classy guy. Down to earth. Maybe he’ll visit Jordan in Texas someday.




    Liz Lipperman has served up cozy worthy of 3 Michelin Stars or 5 Dollycas Starfish!!! Get ready to board the Carnation Queen and set off on an exciting adventure with Murder for the Halibut. Bon Voyage!!!

    Murder For The Halibut is the third book in the A Clueless Cook

    Murder For The Halibut is the third book in the A Clueless Cook Mystery series.

    Jordan McAllister may just be in over her head in this book. She has been volunteered, more or less, one of three judges for a week long cooking competition aboard the Carnation Queen. At the first nights competition, Chef Stefano Mancini is about to present his signature Halibut dish to the judges, when he falls face fist into it and dies. Shortly after this is learned from Chef Thomas that Mancini was allergic to nuts and it is learned that a small bottle of spices that he was using had ground nuts in it.

    The prize going to the winner of this competition is substantial and Jordan wants to know who would go to such lengths to win the coveted prize. Two of the chefs, Marsha and Casey, seem willing to do whatever it takes to win, even giving favors to one of other two judges. Or Chef Thomas who knew of his allergy, but kept quiet until after he died.

    The whole gang from Jordan apartment building is along on the cruise, too. They all, in one way or another, help Jordan to uncover just what who is killing who aboard ship,

    As always there is a little humor included too. Can't be serious all the time. One of the funniest is read how Jordan will dispose of a bit of sweetbread once she learns what it is. And Alex comes in towards the end to help Jordan wrap things up.

    As always, a very entertaining read. Looking forward to the next book.
