Cozy Book Review: Murder for Good Measure

#MondayCozy Mystery

The luck of the Irish runs out when a young nanny from Dublin is killed in the new Cook-Off Mystery . . .

Not long after her family’s store suffers serious damage in a punishing nor’easter, things go from bad to worse for Sherry Oliveri when her new neighbors’ nanny is killed. It soon comes to light that the sous chef for her brother’s food truck was with the young woman the night she was murdered, and the police have him squarely in their crosshairs as the main suspect. With the store closed for repairs, Sherry puts her extra free time to work trying to clear his name.

Juggling impromptu cook-offs and her investigation, Sherry learns that before she was murdered, the nanny was an endless source of old Irish folktales and superstitions, most of them forecasting gloom and doom for any who didn’t heed their warnings. Wondering if the young woman foresaw her own demise, Sherry starts looking for hints she might have left behind—and discovers an enigmatic clue in her own store’s attic. Deciphering the note and unraveling the case will take Sherry on a trip through Irish mythology that leads right back to her family store’s very doorstep . . .

Includes recipes from Sherry’s kitchen!
