mystery with Kate, mom to Laurie and a new PI. She is delightful and energetic, with a great sense humor and the ability to sort through clues to find the bad guys. Her pregnancy hormones are in overdrive with a huge surprise during this second pregnancy. Kate often says that her baby girl Laurie is happy, and she worries about being a good mother. She has the perfect husband, Jim, and their marriage is wonderful. As a PI, Kate finds out how some marriages are not happy when she does a job to catch photos of a cheating husband. It makes her even more thankful for how wonderful her loving husband is, knowing that she will never have a reason to doubt Jim. Until Cassandra. Kate has new cravings with this pregnancy, one of them being the most decadent brownies ever. Jim found them, and keeps her well-stocked. She gets an opportunity to meet the staff and owner of the bakery the night Vicente Domingo’s play, in which her mother has a starring role, opened. Vicente, a PI, is a competitor. He is also a playwright who will find out on opening night that the serious play he wrote was turned into a laugh-fest by the director. At the party after the opening night, Kate sees her favorite brownies as the bakery is catering the event. She takes a bite and it doesn’t seem so tasty any longer, so she tosses it, thinking she needs to find a new go-to sweet. One of the employees of the bakery collapses and the EMT’s can’t bring her around. Cassandra, owner of the bakery, feels ill and is rushed to the hospital. As Kate takes in the surroundings, she is stunned to realize that the employee who can’t be resuscitated is the mistress of the cheater she was hired to photograph. When Cassandra hires Kate to find out who the bad guy is, Kate learns more than she ever wanted to know. Especially when violent attempts on her life begin. The characters are very well-developed, especially Kate and Kenny, her baby-sitting teenage musical prodigy. Jim and Paula are probably second best defined; the author shows us everything we need to know about each character. Well, except for who the real bad guy might be. Kate is driven by emotions as much as her intuition while working cases. Galigani, her mentor as well as her mother’s boyfriend, wants her to develop her own contacts in the police department, bringing a new character to McNearny’s “bad cop” persona. I really like “good cop”, Deb Fisher, and look forward to her and Kate’s friendship growing. There are unusual plot twists and turns. There was somebody I wanted to blame as bad guy, but had a little bit of doubt. W was delighted to see how the killer was captured. The ups and downs of being pregnant, and rampant emotions, keep this story fast-paced and far from dull. It is a great add to the series. I don’t recall reading cozy mysteries with pregnant sleuths, so Kate is unique in that aspect as well as the people she surrounds herself with. I enjoy her family and friends, new and old, and am looking forward to seeing the next one. I highly recommend Killer Cravings! PS I want some of those brownies – makes me hungry thinking about them! From a grateful heart: I received a copy of this ebook from the author, with no requirement for a review.

Kate's pregnancy cravings are getting in the way of her newfound career. While on a stakeout, she misses the first 'money' shot while trying to decide on what best to feed her and baby. I had a lot of fun returning to this series. The way the poison was finally revealed was interesting and the author was able to tie together everything at the end, even with all the red herrings along the way. Kate and Jim are a great couple--he is very supportive of her new career move and I liked that this story dipped a bit more into his past. Kate's mother is always a hoot and neighbor Kenny always up for some babysitting. It was a fun quick read.

This was a good mystery. I didn't want to quit reading, but had to put it down. Kate is pregnant again and is trying to balance being a mother and having a PI job. Between the cravings and sickness, she is really struggling. She has a craving for some brownies from a certain shop that is run by her husband's ex. Her husband didn't bother to tell her that she was an ex and then one of the employees of the shop dies. Was the employee the target because she was having an affair with a married man or was someone else the target? Kate needs to find out soon.
