A perfectly acceptable light little story in the 'Scarpetta' canon. Falling between a novella and a short series of recipes binding it all together. Nicely produced,it will please both Cornwell fans and those who like working in the kitchen.

This is a Christmas stocking filler. A feel-good story and a few recipes. The recipes leave a bit to be desired as the quantities are extremely vague.

This was a very unique book by Cornwell. I have read many of her novels, but nothing like this before! As cooking is my 2nd hobby (right after reading) I really enjoyed it! It is just a sort of "catching-up" on what is going on with the Scarpetta & friends/family with some very good recipes thrown in!I enjoyed this very much, and while very light reading, it was a refreshing change from the novels I normally read.

Throughout the Kay Scarpetta series are instances of Kay cooking different meals. This book, written in novel format, expounds on a few of the recipes that Kay uses. The ingredients are presented, however the reader is left to estimate the amounts of each ingredient used. Fascinating "cookbook"!

PLOT OR PREMISE: A cookbook disguised as a novel. . WHAT I LIKED: Nothing . WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: It was ADVERTISED as a combination of a cookbook with stories about Dr. Kay Scarpetta, and in that light, it fails on all counts. There IS no story, and nothing happening in the non-story -- and worse still, none of the characters act like they do in the novels. The recipes are interesting, but basically this book was issued for one reason and one reason only -- to milk some money out of the fans and to give them almost nothing in return. . DISCLOSURE: I received no compensation, not even a free copy, in exchange for this review. I am not personal friends with the author, nor do I follow her on social media.
