I disconnected the phone call, waiting for the sirens, ready to be arrested and thrown into the women's side of the tiny jail in Elkview, Alaska. A fine way to settle back in my hometown after a few years away.
Friday 56:
"You mean you want me to be a greeter? I don't think so." She'd pointed to her flat-soled leather boots. "I'm ready to work."
This week I am spotlighting Mousse and Murder by Elizabeth Logan. This book begins a new cozy mystery series. Here is the description from Amazon:
A young chef might bite off more than she can chew when she returns to her Alaskan hometown to take over her parents' diner in this charming first installment in a new cozy mystery series set in an Alaskan tourist town.

When Chef Charlie Cooke is offered the chance to leave San Francisco and return home to Elkview, Alaska, to take over her mother's diner, she doesn't even consider saying no. After all--her love life has recently become a Love Life Crumble, and a chance to reconnect with her roots may be just what she needs.

Determined to bring fresh life and flavors to the Bear Claw Diner, Charlie starts planning changes to the menu, which has grown stale over the years. But her plans are fried when her head cook Oliver turns up dead after a bitter and public fight over Charlie's ideas--leaving Charlie as the only suspect in the case.

With her career, freedom, and life all on thin ice, Charlie must find out who the real killer is, before it's too late.
