Sally Solari has a nose for trouble,
but when her sense of smell goes missing, it's not just her career on the
line . . . it's her life.
Restaurateur Sally Solari is a champion, both in the kitchen and on the
case, but after getting mixed up in one too many murders, her nonna's friends have taken to crossing themselves every
time they meet. Sally's determined to stay out of trouble and focus on her
cooking. It's too bad the food scene in Santa Cruz is cut-throat - sometimes
literally. When a head cold knocks out Sally's sense of taste and smell, at the same time
her old acquaintance Neil Lerici is murdered at the annual Artichoke
Cook-Off, her powers of investigation are once again called into action.
Could Neil have been killed by the local restaurant owner who took his
winning spot at the competition? Or maybe by one of his siblings, who were
desperate to sell the family farm to a real estate developer? Sally plunges headfirst into the case, risking alienating everyone she
knows - including the handsome Detective Vargas, who finds her sleuthing both
infuriating and endearing. And soon it's not just her restaurant and her
tentative new relationship that are on the line - it's her life . . .
The Fragrance of Death is a non-stop fun cozy
mystery that will keep your mind buzzing and your mouth watering, and
contains a selection of delicious recipes to cook at home.
