Brittany from The Book Addict’s Guide has started a new weekly feature called The Deja Vu Review, where we can give mini reviews of books we’ve read before we started blogging (or books we never wrote reviews for). I think this is a great idea, and although it means I’m participating in five memes a week (I know that is crazy! But I will still post at least two book reviews a week) I wanted to support Brittany. Plus, it is fun!
Topic: a book with a food theme
Something’s Cooking by Joanne Pence
Rating: 3/5 Stars
Goodreads Summary: For sassy food writer Agenlina Amalfi, life’s a banquet – until the man who’s been contributing unusual recipes for her column is found dead. Suddenly Angie’s being stalked by a killer. Not one to simper in fear, instead she simmers over the delectable homicide cop assigned to the case. Then two more deaths follow, and Angie is on the run.
Mini-Review: I was completely addicted to these Angie Amalfi mysteries when I was a freshman in college. I started reading them after I had read all the Stephanie Plum books at the time. It’s been awhile since I’ve read them, and I am certainly not up-to-date on all the books, but I particularly liked this one (which is the first in the series). I thought Angie was a great character, and I definitely had a little crush on the detective (actually I think he was an Inspector – it’s set in San Francisco). So if you are looking for a light mystery with fun characters and a little romance check out this one.
