Alene Baron doesn’t go looking for mysteries, they find her. When the highly disliked owner of a business neighboring the Whipped and Sipped Cafe turns up dead, the list of potential suspects is pretty long, including all of the members of his quarrelsome family. Missing wills, convenient accidents, and enough red herring to feed the lunch crowd spice up this tantalizing tale. As always, while pondering the evidence, Alene also comes up with creative vegan dishes to serve her customers and share with you.

*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.
Alene is a single mother of three that takes care of her aging father while also running her cafe. As if that doesn't keep her busy enough a neighboring business owner is murdered with her family members being suspects. So she starts asking around while juggling all her tasks. The dishes at her cafe sound incredible enough to make you mouth water even if they are vegan (I am most definitely not) so grab some snacks while reading. The list of characters at the front make it easy to keep track of who is who which brings the story to life. Add in the cute town and you feel like you are there with her. Thanks to plenty of the little clues along with the multiple suspects will keep the reader guessing until the final reveal. Makes for a fun read the fans of culinary cozies are sure to enjoy. I really liked it so I give it 4/5 stars.

About G. P. Gottlieb

G.P. Gottlieb has worked as a musician, a teacher, and an administrator, but she’s happiest when writing recipe-laced murder mysteries. Battered: A Whipped and Sipped Mystery and Smothered: A Whipped and Sipped Mystery take place in the spring and summer of 2019 and a third book in the series will center on a murder that occurs during the city of Chicago’s lockdown in May 2020. G.P. Gottlieb has always experimented in the kitchen and created her delicious vegan cookies and cakes in direct opposition to what she learned in courses at Chicago’s French Pastry School. She is host for New Books in Literature, a podcast channel on the New Books Network, the mother of three grown children, and lives with her husband in a Chicago high-rise that is strikingly similar to the building portrayed in the Whipped and Sipped Mystery series.
