Deliciously Suspicious

A special book arrived yesterday.  It has a colorful cover and an enticing title.  You might recognize it...
Delicious and Suspicious by Riley Adams

Who is Riley Adams? you ask.  Why, it's none other than our talented blogger friend Elizabeth Spann Craig!  That's right, her newest book and series-beginner is out and ready for purchase.

Here is the description from Elizabeth's blog:
When a food scout from a cable cooking channel is murdered, it's only natural for restaurant owner Lulu Taylor to take it personally. After all, her barbeque restaurant served the scout's last meal. But danger lurks as Lulu investigates the crime. Will she clear the restaurant's name, or is she next to be skewered?

If you love cozies, mystery, and good food, this is a book you'll enjoy.  I'm not reviewing the writing here (it just arrived yesterday!), but we all know Elizabeth's talent and detail-oriented nature.  In fact, success is already touching this book.  See the numbers her book is generating here.

Let's just say, if you don't have a Spann Craig/Adams book on your shelf, you're going to be one of the only readers who doesn't in the near future.

  1. Very cool. Book sounds great. cool pen name too.

  2. All these years I didn't even know there was something called a cozy mystery, because we don't stock that genre in India. And guess what I found last week - D&S - not just Elizabeth, an entire genre has arrived.

  3. Thank you so much, Michele, for plugging my book today! I really appreciate it. :) I hope you'll enjoy it.

    Tabitha--it's a family name of mine...the publisher let me pick my pen name.
