Restaurant Weeks Are Murder by Libby Klein-Great Escapes Tour

About the book 
Cape May, New Jersey, is the site of a big culinary competition—and the knives are out . . .
Poppy McAllister is happy about opening a Jersey Shore B&B—but working in a professional kitchen has always been her real dream. Now it’s coming true, at least briefly, as she teams up with her former fiancée, Tim—and his condescending partner, Gigi—during the high-profile Restaurant Week challenge. Poppy’s specialty is pastries, despite her devotion to a Paleo diet. But if anyone can make glorious gluten-free goodies, it’s Poppy.
Things get heated quickly—especially when some ingredients get switched and Tim’s accused of sabotage. Relatively harmless pranks soon escalate into real hazards, including an exploding deep fryer. And now one of the judges has died after taking a bite of Poppy’s cannoli—making her the chef suspect . . .
Includes Seven Recipes from Poppy’s Kitchen!
And others are saying 
There is a cast of quirky characters that liven up the storyline and of course, we can’t forget Aunt Ginny and her antics along with the rest of her Senior friends. She knows how to liven up this book with her shenanigans.
I absolutely adore this series and each book is better than the last…but this book, well it was SO good! The storyline was so well written and entertaining.
~The Montana Bookaholic
Ms. Klein has found the perfect recipe for a marvelous cozy mystery. Wonderful characters mixed in a sensational story with a dash a romance and sprinkled liberally with humor. A delectable treat for every cozy lover.
~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book
Poppy’s family and friends are funny and unpredictable and you never know what they are going to do next, which is great as a reader, but not so great for Poppy.
~MJB Reviewers
Restaurant Weeks Are Murder by Libby Klein combines this splendid mystery with real to life character that stole my heart . . .
~Baroness’ Book Trove

Filled with sparkling humor and rich characterization, this story captured my interest from the first and moves at a steady pace throughout.
~The Power of Words
Poppy is such a delight . . . Aunt Ginny with her peppered comments. Gia, Poppy’s delicious male love interest. And a cat that weaves a sparkly trail throughout the book, popping up in the most unusual places. It was good clean fun . . .
Another fun, funny and interesting mystery with Poppy McAllister and friends.
~Laurra’s Interests
Libby Klein has crafted a book and series with the same skill as a top chef crafts their signature dish.

 And I thought
If  I was not already a fan of  Cozy Mysteries Libby Klein, Poppy 
and Aunt Ginny would win me over. 
I have to say this is my favorite series.  
It is hard to say which character is my favorite but Aunt Ginny sure steals the show. 
Poppy is a reluctant sleuth or so she thinks.  She seems to figure out Who Dun It actually with ease. 
She does seem to get into a bit or a scrape when the bad guy figures out she's figured out who he or she is.  
But in the end everyone comes out safe.  The bad guy is found out and everything is all tidied up. 

 At least until the next installment. 

I really enjoy this series and I can't wait to see what Poppy and the 
quirky Aunt Ginny get into next time. 

If you are a fan of Cozy's check out this series! This one is widely available.  Check out the list of places to purchase below. 

I received a complimentary copy. 
My review will appear on retail sites, Good Reads and will 
also appear on My Journey Back-The Journey Back blog.
