Sifting Through Clues A Cookbook Nook Mystery, Book 8

Hello my cozy friends,

Todays book review is "Sifting Through Clues" the 8th book in this series bu Daryl Gerber.  Luckily you don’t have to read the previous books as this was the first time I am reading this series. Even though  this book can be read as a standalone, I do suggest that you do start at the beginning so you get to know some characters better.

Print Length: 364 pages
Publisher: Beyond the Page (April 23 2019)
Genre: Cozy Mystery


The Agatha Award–winning author of Wreath Between the Lines returns to the Cookbook Nook, where culinary mysteries are giving everyone food for thought . . .

Book clubs from all over have descended on Crystal Cove to celebrate the library’s Book Club Bonanza week, and Jenna Hart has packed the Cookbook Nook with juicy reads and tasty cookbooks. But she’s most excited about spending an evening with the Mystery Mavens and their moveable feast, when they will go from house to house to share different culinary treats and discuss the whodunit they’re all reading. It’s all good food and fun for the savvy armchair detectives, until one of the members of the group is found murdered at the last stop on the tour. 

As if that weren’t enough to spoil her appetite, Jenna discovers that all the evidence points to her friend Pepper as being the guilty party. And with Pepper’s chief-of-police daughter too close to the case to be impartial, Jenna knows she’ll have to step in to help clear her friend’s name before a bitter injustice sends her to jail. Sifting through the clues, Jenna unearths any number of possible culprits, but she’ll have to cook up a new way to catch the killer before Pepper’s goose is cooked . . .

Includes tasty sweet and savory recipes!


This is a well written mystery and I was captivated from the start. I love it when I get drawn into a story and can picture everything in my mind.  I loved the characters and that they listed them in the front which helped as I had not read any previous installments in the series.  There were lots of clues, twists and turns with a bunch of suspects to choose from.

I found it was filled with quirky characters, picturesque settings, references to other books and yummy food.  I always enjoy a story with these ingredients!

There are lots of great recipes at the end that would be fun to try. 

I highly recommend this series to all my cozy mystery loving friends!

My Rating
I received a complimentary ARC from Beyond the Page Publishing through NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are mine.

Agatha Award-winning Daryl Wood Gerber writes the brand new French Bistro Mysteries as well as the nationally bestselling Cookbook Nook Mysteries. 

As Avery Aames, she pens the popular Cheese Shop Mysteries. A DEADLY ƊCLAIR, the first French Bistro Mystery, comes out November 2017.

Daryl also writes stand-alone suspense: DAY OF SECRETS and GIRL ON THE RUN.

Fun tidbit: as an actress, Daryl appeared in “Murder, She Wrote.” She loves to cook, and she has a frisky Goldendoodle named Sparky who keeps her in line!
