A Feast for Private Eyes

This Thanksgiving you may need more than green bean casserole to get you through the long weekend. I recommend some stretchy pants and a few cozy books. I couldn’t think of anything more fitting for a November menu than this smorgasbord of mouthwatering culinary mysteries. Keep your skills of deduction as sharp as a chef’s knife as you join these sleuths in the kitchen and on the case. Fill your belly with the recipes sprinkled throughout the pages and learn to make dishes so delicious it should be criminal. The authors serve all-you-can-eat whodunits with all the fixings. Pop in a turkey, get comfy, and savor these great mysteries.

A Catered Thanksgiving: A Mystery With Recipes

If you crave a classic whodunit you’ll find nothing more satisfying than this story. Two sisters witness some fatal turkey tampering when they cater a Thanksgiving dinner at an isolated mansion. Was it the shady nephew? The jealous sister-in-law? I won’t spoil the ending but, at the end of this book, there’s recipes for two types of stuffing and pecan pie!

Cinnamon Roll Murder

Amateur sleuth and baked goods extraordinaire Hannah Swensen returns in this culinary mystery. It’s springtime, and the annual jazz festival brings more than music to the town of Lake Eden when somebody is found murdered. But with Hannah on the case, its a guarantee that this crime will be solved in time for dessert. You’ll drool over recipes for Tapioca Pie, and Carrot Slaw.

The Death of Pie

Stories that take place in Pennsylvania Dutch communities bring a sense of comfort and simplicity – even if the stories contain malice and murder. Join cranky innkeeper Magdalena Yoder as she bakes pies and solves crimes in this humorous mystery. Maybe add a recipe or two to your Thanksgiving baking repertoire. Inside you’ll find out how to make treats like Butterscotch Chiffon Pie and Brown Sugar Pie.


Pecan Pies and Homicides

Escaping hectic holidays can be hard, but stories with fantasy elements do just the trick. In Pecan Pies and Homicides, the bewitching owner of the Charmed Pie Shoppe puts out a few fires in her quaint, enchanted town. And not all the fires have started in the kitchen. Follow the clues and recipes in this delicious and mystical story. Recipes include Mini Maple Pecan Pies and Apple Pear Cherry Crisp.

The Diva Runs Out of Thyme

What could be better for Thanksgiving than a book stuffed with the sights, smells and tastes of the holiday season. Sophie Winston has a lot on her plate dealing with her childhood rival, divorce drama, and a bickering family, all during her busiest season as an event planner. When she discovers a dead body and is named a suspect, she must clear her name before the kitchen timer runs out. Impress the guests at your own Holiday table with savory sides like Bacon and Herb Stuffing, and Chesapeake Cornbread.
