Hickory Smoked Homicide by Riley Adams

Summary:  BBQ-joint owner Lulu Taylor knows pretty much everyone in Memphis who loves ribs. But one person she’d rather not know is Tristan Pembroke, a snooty pageant coach with a mean streak. When she finds Tristan’s dead body stuffed in a closet at a party, the police are suspicious- especially since Lulu’s developed a taste for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Caught in a situation stickier than molasses, Lulu must clear her name, or risk getting fried...

What I liked:  This series is just a down home all around good read. The characters are quirky and lovable. The few minor irritating characters always seem to end up being the victim or the bad guy so they really don’t stay around long enough to get truly irritating.  The pacing is perfect, making for a very quick and enjoyable read.  And of course, the recipes included at the back of the book are wonderful added bonus.

What I didn’t like:  Liked it all!

Recommended:  If you enjoy cozy mysteries with recipes you must read this series.  But be warned – reading about all the wonderful food at Aunt Pat’s will make crave some down home BBQ.
