Food blogger Hope Early takes on a cold case that's heating up fast . . .
Building on her recipe for success with her food blog, Hope at Home, Hope is teaching her first blogging class at the local library in Jefferson, Connecticut. She's also learning about podcasts, including a true-crime one called Search for the Missing, hosted by Hope's childhood friend, Devon Markham. Twenty years ago on Valentine's Day, right here in Jefferson, Devon's mom disappeared and was never found. Finally Devon has returned to solve the mystery of what happened to her mother--and she asks Hope to help.
The next day Hope discovers Devon's apartment has been ransacked. Her laptop with the research on her mother's cold case is missing, and Devon is nowhere to be found. When her friend's body is later discovered in a car wreck, Hope is convinced it's no accident. Clearly, Devon was too close to the truth, and the cold-blooded killer is still at large in Jefferson. Now it's up to Hope to find the guilty party--before the food blogger herself becomes the next subject of another true-crime podcast . . .
This is the fourth book in the Food Blogger mysteries by Debra Sennefelder.
Hope is teaching her first blogging class at the library and she is really liking it. One of her old friends, Devon, a podcaster, is back to town to research her mother’s disappearance for one of her podcasts. Then she turns up missing and all her research gone. Later her body is discovered and they now know that her mother’s disappearance was probably murder after all.
I really like this series. The whole blogging aspect really appeals to me. I wish the author would write an ebook about the ins and outs of blogging and how to do marketing and such. I would totally be interested in that. I love all the little tips she gives out.
This is one of those series I would probably start with book one and read up on the back story before digging into this one. But it can totally be read as a standalone.
Loved the intricate mystery and the cast. They compliment each other so well. Makes me want to stay in town and know what is going on day to day even when there isn’t a mystery afoot.
If you like cozy mysteries, definitely check this one out. You won’t be disappointed.
