This extends to the other books in the series, two of which are The Baked Bean Supper Murders set in Maine and The Cooking School Murders I haven't read that yet. I do appreciate all of that. Her old friends had a dangerous new look: dangerously thin and dressed to kill! Do try one of these fun reads--even Mrs. Spine creases, wear to binding and pages from reading. My only reason for not giving a 5 star, and I know it's silly but everyone else in the book the narrator refers to by their first name. It is snobby, but that is part of its interest.

The other part that I found confusing was how many characters there were and that sometimes they'd be referred to by first names and sometimes by last names so I would have to stop and think about who they were talking about and at times wishing for a list of the characters at the front of the book. The fact that I suspected, didn't ruin the suspense at the end.

It is snobby, but that is part of its interest. Warm memories and good food greeted Mrs. Her old friends had a dangerous new look: dangerously thin and dressed to kill! This book was okay although a bit dry for my taste. I am certainly an outspoken foe of the ridiculous body image messages that women are foisted, and I appreciated the basic concept of the book - that being a healthy weight is fine, but to drive yourself to anorexia can quickly lead to death. The recipes, though, are good. A handsome new diet doctor had won over the richest widows on the island with his weight-loss secrets -- and his very personal attention.

This series is one of those I turn to when I am tired, stressed, unhappy and not able to manage a tough read. This is a short series of mysteries that were at least among the first of the foodie mysteries, including recipes for food that appears in the book. A handsome new diet doctor had won over the richest widows on the island with his weight-loss secrets -- and his very personal attention. Lots and lots of description of old houses on Nantucket, old lighthouse baskets, old road erosion. There's a lot more telling than showing, too much description which I find slows down the story.
