Chicken Soup & Homicide (Culinary Competition Mysteries #2)

Amy Ridley and her friend, Sophie, have perfected their chicken soup recipe, and the winter-weary residents of Kellerton, Michigan can’t wait to watch them compete against other local chefs in the Chicken Soup Showdown. But the charity event starts out with a bang, literally, when one of the rival chefs falls out of a freezer and onto Amy. If it wasn’t stressful enough for Amy to catch a dead body, the detective in charge of the investigation targets her best friend, Carla, as the chief suspect in the murder.

In order to clear her friend’s name, Amy does her own investigating. The problem is nobody liked the arrogant murdered celebrity chef, and soon her suspect list is longer than the list of ingredients in her secret chicken soup recipe. Can Amy figure out who killed the celebrity chef? Or will Carla be spending the spring in jail?

When Amy Ridley decided to compete in the Kellerton Summer Festival Pie Contest, the last thing she expected was to find the reigning pie queen, Mandy Jo, dead—a raspberry pie smashed on her face! Mandy Jo made fantastic pies, but she accumulated more enemies than baking trophies. But when Amy receives a note threatening her own life, she decides to do some investigating herself.

It seems that half the town has a reason to kill the mean pie queen, and Amy finds herself sifting through a list of suspects that’s longer than her list of recipes. Not to mention playing cupid for her love-shy best friend, fending off a baker intent on finding out her prize-winning culinary secrets, and ducking the deadly attentions of Mandy Jo’s killer. If Amy doesn’t find out who wanted the pie queen dead soon, her own goose may be cooked!

If you follow me on some of my social media accounts, you may have already seen the cover of my new book. When I found out it was available to pre-order on several sites I couldn’t wait to start telling people about it! Now that I’ve stopped hopping around in my awkward version of a Happy Dance, I want to do an “official” cover reveal. It was done by the fabulous Lyndsey Lewellen.

The book will be released on July 8th, so just over a month from now. I’m a writer and I can’t even explain how excited I am! If you would like to read it a little sooner, I am organizing a blog tour that will run throughout July. I am also looking for reviewers to read an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) and post reviews on Amazon, Goodreads, etc. when it is released. Click here or on the banner above for more information, if you’re interested.

What do you think of the cover? Personally, I LOVE it! But I may be a bit biased since it is my book baby.
