One Taste Too Many by Debra H. Goldstein-Great Escapes Tour Spotlight

This is a spotlight post I am still turning the pages . . .
Stick a 'fork in me I'm done'.  I finished reading this one albeit a little.  My apologies to Debra Goldstein for the late finish.  As slow as I was getting to it I hope it's worth the wait.  
Best Wishes on the tour!
And now on with the review. 

About the book 
For culinary challenged Sarah Blair, there’s only one thing scarier than cooking from scratch—murder!
Married at eighteen, divorced at twenty‑eight, Sarah Blair reluctantly swaps her luxury lifestyle for a cramped studio apartment and a law firm receptionist job in the tired hometown she never left. With nothing much to show for the last decade but her feisty Siamese cat, RahRah, and some clumsy domestic skills, she’s the polar opposite of her bubbly twin, Emily—an ambitious chef determined to take her culinary ambitions to the top at a local gourmet restaurant . . .
Sarah knew starting over would be messy. But things fall apart completely when her ex drops dead, seemingly poisoned by Emily’s award-winning rhubarb crisp. Now, with RahRah wanted by the woman who broke up her marriage and Emily wanted by the police for murder, Sarah needs to figure out the right recipe to crack the case before time runs out. Unfortunately, for a gal whose idea of good china is floral paper plates, catching the real killer and living to tell about it could mean facing a fate worse than death—being in the kitchen!
Includes quick and easy recipes!
And I thought
It's always fun to get into book 1 of a new series.  
One Taste Too Many left me waiting for the next one.  
I enjoyed the 'twins' characters and at first had a hard time keeping them straight.  Which actually I think was good because isn't that the way it really is with twins.  
The covering for each other or the pretending to be each other. 
So I'll late it for you

Sarah is the one that works for a lawyer and is getting over a divorce and has a cat given to her by his ex when his mom died. 
And btw Sarah can't cook. 

Emily is the sis that is making her way in the culinary world. 
And kind of ends up stumbling over dead bodies.  

Got it straight?

Yes there are a few bodies in the mix and with each the sista's become the suspects.   

Adding to the mix a cop that is well.  I won't give anymore away but he just seems more interested in the sisters (as suspects or something else?) instead of discovering the real killer. 

This one was a fun ride.  A few twists that will keep you turning the pages maybe a little slower to keep up.  

I loved the end.  

I did wish to have found a few more recipes.  Maybe next time?

I received a complimentary copy. 
My review will appear on retail sites Good Reads and NetGalley.
