Fit to Die by J.B. Stanley

Welcome back to Quincy's Gap, Virginia, where James Henry and his dieting group contend with dangerous secrets, dark intrigue, and delicious praline sundaes. Six months after starting their low-carb diet, the Flab Five are feeling motivationally- challenged. A new ice cream shop has come to town, but so has the Witness to Fitness weight loss center, run by the fanatical Veronica Levitt. Maybe Veronica's "take-no-prisoners" approach is just what the group needs.

Between dieting, caring for his cranky father, and struggling with his growing affection for Lucy, James has his plate full. But when he and his fellow dieters poke around in an arson case that turns into a murder investigation, the Flab Five discover that they may have bitten off more than they can chew.

A cozy "village" mystery, Fit to Die is the second book in the warm and wonderful Supper Club Mystery series

This is a really great series. The characters are so likable and for me, so easy to relate to. I get a good chuckle out of their reasoning for having something to eat they *shouldn't* I liked the introduction of new characters in this book, and they flowed so easily into the story line. I enjoyed the development of the characters who were present in the last book, especially James' dad, although a small part of the overall story, I really enjoyed the parts in the book that included him. Can't wait to hear more about the happenings in Quincy's Gap!! :) 4.5/5
