“Things are finally looking up for Sarah Blair following her unsavory divorce. Settled into a cozy carriage house with her sassy Siamese cat, RahRah, she has somehow managed to hang on to her modest law firm receptionist job and—if befriending flea-bitten strays at the local animal shelter counts—lead a thriving social life. For once, Sarah almost has it together more than her enterprising twin, Emily, a professional chef whose efforts to open a gourmet restaurant have hit a real dead end.
When the president of the town bank and city council is murdered after icing Emily’s business plans, all eyes are on the one person who left the scene with blood on her hands—the Blair girls’ sharp-tongued mother, Maybelle. Determined to get her mom off the hook ASAP, Sarah must collect the ingredients of a deadly crime to bring the true culprit to justice. But as neighbors turn against her family, can she pare down the suspects before another victim lands on the chopping block?” Amazon
I really enjoyed the first book in the Sarah Blair Mystery series, One Taste Too Many, by Debra H. Goldstein because I did not figure out the killer early, and that is very rare for me when it comes to cozy mysteries. So when I saw Goldstein had book two in the series, Two Bites Too Many, coming out I knew I would be giving it a read.
Goldstein picks up right where the end of One Taste Too Many leaves off, but if you hadn’t read that one, you won’t be lost since Goldstein does a great job with back story. Goldstein continues to deliver wonderful characters that you want to get to know even more or you could see yourself being friends with them. And there appears to be a love interest in the works for Sarah, so we shall see how that develops.
Goldstein’s description of the town and the architect of the buildings is very well done. The depth that she gives to the atmosphere of the bank is fantastic. I felt as if I was actually standing inside waiting to deposit some money or get a loan.
While I did figure out the killer before the end in this book, it was still an excellent read. I’m already looking forward to book three in the Sarah Blair Mystery series and seeing what adventures Sarah and the rest of the cast of characters are involved in.
