Overview

Even Lulu Taylor—proprietress of Aunt Pat’s Barbeque Restaurant in the heart of Memphis, Tennessee—needs to get out of the kitchen now and then. But at the Rock and Ribs festival, she finds more than a taste of trouble…
 
Reuben Shaw rubs a lot of people the wrong way—including Lulu’s best friend, Cherry, who has the misfortune of being in the booth next to his at the festival. The pigheaded pit master thinks he’s a shoo-in to win the barbeque competition, but he spends more time stirring up trouble than seasoning his spare ribs. Hours after she gets into a quarrel with him, Cherry finds Shaw dead with a butcher knife in his chest. Now it’s her turn to get grilled—by the police. Lulu sets out to clear her friend’s name and finds Shaw had more secrets than his BBQ recipe. She’ll need to act fast, because the real killer will spare no one…including Lulu.

Includes recipes!

There’s trouble in Tennessee when a buffoon named Reuben Shaw stirs up more the Barbecue Sauce and rubs nearly everyone at the Rock and Ribs Festival the wrong way.  Lulu’s best friend, Cherry, tangled with him as soon as she realized his booth was next to the Graces booth. But no one was more surprised than her to find him dead with a butcher knife in his chest just a few hours later. While the police start grilling  suspects including Cherry, Lulu sets off on her own investigation to make sure her friend is spared from ending up behind bars. Dollycas’s Thoughts I was so excited to see this book come out. It has been way too long since our last visit to Aunt Pat’s to visit some of my favorite people. The characters continue to bring the humor to the story. Their little quips never fail to crack me up. From Lulu and officer Pink Rogers to Cherry, Ben, Sara, Monty and on to younger generation these characters are so real and true, they just jump off the page and into your heart. I really enjoyed the interactions between the generations. Derrick is starting to get comfortable in his new home. He and his new friend Finn have some real heartwarming moments with Lulu and Morty. Finn even helps get Lulu on the right track with her investigation. This was a tough one to solve too! I hope Riley Adams doesn’t wait too long for the next installment. I am already ready for another huge plate of ribs and another visit to Aunt Pats!! This is a perfect summer read, so fire up your grill, pour a glass of your favorite beverage, kick back and relax and enjoy this wonderful cozy mystery. There are even some fabulous recipes in the back of the book for you to try.
