Book Review: “A Cookbook Conspiracy” by Kate Carlisle (Bibliophile Mystery #7)



Title:  A Cookbook Conspiracy

Author:  Kate Carlisle

Series:  Bibliophile Mystery #7

Synopsis (from  It’s a recipe for disaster when bookbinder Brooklyn Wainwright is asked to restore an antique cookbook….

Brooklyn’s sister Savannah and her former culinary school classmates all became successful chefs, especially Savannah’s ex-boyfriend Baxter Cromwell, who went on to culinary superstardom. When he invites the old gang to the gala opening of his new restaurant in San Francisco, Savannah asks Brooklyn to restore a rare antique cookbook as a present for him.

The night they all gather, Baxter is found dead, the cookbook has disappeared, and Savannah becomes the suspect du jour. But Brooklyn knows her sister is innocent, and there are plenty of old grudges simmering among this backstabbing bunch. Now she’ll have to turn up the heat on the investigation before Chef Savannah finds herself slinging hash in a prison cafeteria.


My thoughts:  I took a break from cozies for a while to get back into some mysteries . . . and after my break it is so nice to be home!

I really enjoy this series. . . I mean a book about someone who likes to fix books and surrounded by a cozy food theme as well, sign me up.

I devoured this book in a day, tucked in under my favorite blankie, with a warm cup of coffee after the first snowstorm of the season, perfect book for a perfect day.

I truly enjoyed this book.  It was fun yet a good story at the same time . . . and the overall plot was not cheesy as we all know some cozy stories can be.  The characters are great, fun, engaging . . . and after you read all the books in the series truly feel like family!

Overall, a great series and a great addition to the series!

And remember,

Books Are Life,
