Willa Friday has had her hands full with her daughter and her new assistant. Well, he's not so new, but new enough.
She's been starting her days by driving into town for coffee and cupcakes at Bent Fork Bakery & Gifts. And it's starting to show.
Over a period of weeks, she's noticed the same man sitting in the same booth each time she comes in. He's usually still there when she leaves. She doesn't think much of it, other than that he should weigh more since he's ordering way more than she does. That is until his regular server, Becca Roundhouse, goes missing.
Now Willa is determined to find out who the man is, and if he had anything to do with Becca's disappearance.
As always, Willa will share some of her favorite recipes from A Dish In Thyme food blog along with delicious wine suggestions.

Easy reading, keeps your interest. Love the family dynamics. Can't wait for more books! Keep them coming Jamie Lee!
I love this series. It series hits all the right notes for me. First of all Willa, the main character, is intelligent and likeable and I understand and can relate to her thought processes. Next, I really care about Willa and her extended family. Finally, the plot makes sense! We get a nice taste of realistic romance which I enjoy even though romance is not essential for a book to be good. As a bonus for me, I am fascinating by food styling and photography so I enjoy this series more than the typical culinary series. Willa is curious about the death of a friendly acquaintance but it is her ex-mother-in-law’s jealously that really drives the beginning of the investigation into the death. Before long Willa's natural curiosity is enough to keep her going when bits and pieces they have collected don't add up. I have made the book sound kind of flat, but that fact is since a guy named Harvey came calling on my town and most of the Texas Gulf coast, my life has been a little chaotic and I am not doing much reviewing, but I had to take the time to share the fact that I loved Mousse Moscato & Murder and the Willa Friday Food & Wine Mystery series! The series should be a must by for most readers of amateur detective mysteries and for all public libraries.
