Sherry Oliveri has attained celebrity status after winning the America’s Good Taste Recipe Contest with her delectable New England Crab Cake Sliders. But now that she’s back home in Connecticut, she’s got to deal with something else fishy . . .
Sherry’s making a guest appearance on a local radio show when the news comes in: Poppy Robinson has been found dead in the town’s community garden. Sherry was supposed to be taking questions about her win in the national cooking competition, but instead the callers start dishing dirt.
Poppy and Sherry were both involved in the vegetable garden, and while Poppy may have been a bit priggish, it wasn’t anything that called for a shovel to the back of the head. There was already trouble brewing, with the owner of the land threatening to renege on their agreement, and this murder has taken tensions to a new level. Now while Sherry’s organizing a Fourth of July cook-off event, she’s also got a murder investigation on her plate . . .
Includes Recipes from Sherry’s Kitchen!
*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.

Sherry is on her way home after a successful cookoff with no murder involved as the big winner. Her name is well known now making the flight interesting but that was only the beginning of the chaos to come. Once home there is lots of gossiping about the community gardens that leads to the death of the woman running it. Sherry has no intention of getting involved but others request it anyways. This leads to a merry adventure of her living her hectic life while stumbling across clues. I must say the ending was a nice surprise twist. A great mystery full of quirky characters and mouth watering food that will keep you hooked until the very end. Perfect for fans of culinary themed cozies. I really liked it so I give it 4/5 stars
