    I LOVE THIS SERIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The nice quiet village of Hemlock Falls has been intruded on by "The Grouchiest Chef in the World" Bernard LeVasque and his multimillion dollar cooking school just across the gorge from the Inn at Hemlock Falls. While the Inn in fully booked, the restaurant in almost empty and that has Chef Meg Quillian ready to throw frying pans, 8" saute pans to be exact. To make things worse he plays some awful tricks on the sisters. While both sisters wish he would just go away, they never dreamed he would end up dead.

    Just who would want to kill the chef, one of his students, his wife, one of his devoted foodies? Maybe the scrap of paper found in his hand will lead to the killer. It would be a Hemlock Falls Mystery if the sisters weren't investigating and Quill will stop at nothing until she finds out WHO STABBED THE CHEF??



    I am so glad I am able to visit The Inn at Hemlock Falls again, it has been too long. This was the first set of cozy mysteries I collected for my keeper shelf after my accident. I searched E-bay, Amazon and many other online bookstores to complete the set, even buying two online from a bookstore in Canada. As each new book is released I would add it to my wonderful collection. The last one was A Carol for a Corpse was released back in 2007. I was so thrilled to learn about Toast Mortem and am excited to finally have it in my hands.

    This book took me back to my old friends Meg and Quill with her 2 year old Jack, Dina is still at the reception desk, and Doreen is more a grandmother to Jack than the Inn's housekeeper. This new plot was original and once I started I couldn't stop reading. The added adventures of Jack's lion made my laugh out loud. If you haven't started this series, it's never too late. The author is a true master when it comes to writing a cozy. Add this one to your Summer Reading Lists, you will not be disappointed.

    Be sure to check out Claudia's web page http://claudiabishop.com/ to learn more about the books and the other series she writes the Dr. McKenzie Mysteries and follow her over to her other site to learn about the paranormal series she writes as Mary Stanton http://www.marystanton.com/

    Cute mystery

    Loosely based on the culinary arts, this a light and entertaining mystery. This is the first time I've read this author but I would buy more of this series.

    Not Up To the Old Hemlock Falls Status :(

    Was thrilled to see another installment of the Hemlock Falls Series. I have read the past 15 and loved them. Ms. Bishop seemed to get busy with other venues and I was afraid that #15 was the end of the road for Quill and Meg. But after reading "Toast Mortem" unfortunately it just fell short of the delightful series I so enjoyed. Quill's life now is that of a mother first with innkeeper/sleuth just not the same level it once was. Meg is still sock predictable and a handful, but does not have the edge she once drove everyone crazy with. Myles is still off doing his private security thing, making a last page appearance to end the story with an ahhhhh. The plot was just too predictable, the characters were not the normal level to really care about, and it just seemed "bland". Hate to be so negative, since I loved the 15 prior books. Don't know what happened here. If you read this and have the same opinion, don't give up, go back to the start of the series for I am sure you will be glad you did. Maybe the next one will be up to the old standards. Sure hope so.

    Continuation of a favorite series

    I was quite excited to find a new Hemlock Falls Mystery. I was under the impression the series had ended. I hope there will be many more.

    Meg and Quill are at it again. I love their sisterly banter and the many characters who work at the Inn. Plus now Quill has a young son. And with the multimillion dollar cooking school in town and the obnoxious head chef, things are a bit dicey. As always, she has a couple of stories intertwined and does a great job of having them coexist but not be disruptive to the other.

    I like how her bringing in the cooking school brings in new characters and opportunities for future books. I do hope this means the series has a bright future. I highly recommend this book and the entire series.

    Don't even bother downloading this book!

    I used to read Claudia Bishop's books and thought I would try this one, but when I downloaded and went to read the beginning - guess what? I never read anything except the cover and chapters and printers names, but not one word of the actual story was downloaded. Unbelievable.
