The Tell-Tale Tarte by Maya Corrigan

The Tell-Tale Tarte

Book four in the Five-Ingredient Mystery series. As her grandad pressure her about starting on his cookbook she finds herself out one day when a man collapses that from a distance looks exactly like her grandfather. When she rushes to help she finds it is not him but an actor that happens to work with her boyfriend Gunner. It is discovered that the actor was murdered and Gunner is the prime suspect. Of course Val has to investigate when just gets interesting as her Grandad butts in to help whether she wants him to or not. Val catches her Grandad impersonating a famous author at a catering event she has which causes her to make connections with the dead actor who was dressed in the exact same outfit making it possible that he was an impersonator too. When the author and his family become involved things really heat up until the finale at the end when it all comes out. While I enjoy that characters and premise of the book I couldn't help but feel just "blah" during certain parts of the book went made it a trial to keep turning the pages. I did not get the same hook pulling me in as the first three books in the series. Maybe things will improve again with the next installment but for not I just like it so it gets 3/5 stars.
