Whereas Ms. Richman's debut Chas Wheatley murder mystery, THE BUTTER DID IT, was a tasty treat that merely whet my appetite for more, her second 'culinary mystery' is a scrumptious main course that satisfied me completely! What's for dessert?

I am an avid mystery reader, and was thoroughly entertained. I read it on the long ride home on my vacation, from start to finish. I also ordered Richman's first mystery, 'The Butter Did It.' It hasn't arrived yet, but I am eagerly anticipating it.
