Spawning Suspicion by Maggie Toussaint-Great Escapes Tour-Review


About the book

The death of island playboy Curtis Marlin doesn’t register on busy caterer River Holloway’s radar…that is, until her brother and his girlfriend are arrested for the former athlete’s murder. Certain of the pair’s innocence, the amateur sleuth sets out to investigate. Suspicion on the island spreads like chocolate sauce when River questions the victim’s teammates. The suspects don’t appreciate her stirring up trouble, but she won’t let an election-hungry sheriff make her brother a sacrificial lamb.


But there’s more than murder on River’s to-do list. A missing groom, catered banquets, and River’s own wedding plans keep her hopping like a short order cook. And as the cherry on the sundae, she has a wild kitty to tame. Under mossy oaks and rustling palmettoes, fact and fiction blend in a mouthwatering romp of good eatin’ and yummy recipes. Spawning Suspicion is the second in Toussaint’s Seafood Capers Mystery Series.

And I thought

There was so much food talked about I couldn't wait to get the end and see what recipes we get to enjoy.

And an ending it was.  Cozy Mysteries don't usually have Fairy Take endings but surprisingly this one did.

I loved the mystery.  I enjoyed the twists and turns.  I stood behind River as she tried to figure out exactly when and what went down so she could find the real killer.

The other characters were fun giving the reader a few smiles along the way.  And the townspeople add to the story.

I must say I wasn't too taken with the cover but I read the back and I thought it might just be a good read.  And it was.

Since this one is book 2 I have added book 1 to my TBR list.

I enjoyed this new to me series and am waiting as patiently as I can for more!

I received a complimentary copy.

 My review will appear on retail sites and Good Reads.
