The Diva Runs Out of Thyme by Krista Davis

Gracious living can be murder. First in an all-new mystery series— includes delicious recipes and great tips on entertaining!

Few can compete with Natasha Smith when it comes to entertaining, but her childhood rival, Sophie Winston, certainly tries. Natasha may have stolen the spotlight—and Sophie’s husband—but Sophie is determined to rob her of the prize for the Stupendous Stuffing Shakedown. She just needs the right ingredient.

But Sophie’s search for the perfect turkey takes a basting when she stumbles across a corpse. And when the police find her name and photo inside the victim’s car, Sophie will have to set her trussing aside to solve the murder—or she’ll be serving up prison grub.

I truly loved this book!!!!! What a great start to a new series!!! :) I loved the little tidbits that start off each chapter, and loved finding out what the chapter entailed that the tidbit was linked to!!! The cast of characters were great, such fun getting to know them all, and you have to love all the animals that were included in the story!! The details were terrific, I felt as if I was in the kitchen cooking up something wonderful with Sophie as I read the descriptions of her making her meals. This was SUCH an enjoyable read for me, and I can't wait for the progression of this series!!! :) 4.5/5
