Welcome to another Spotlight Saturday. This week, I’m reading Murder for the Halibut, written by my friend and loopmate, Liz Lipperman.
Title: Murder for the Halibut
Author: Liz Lipperman
Genre: Cozy mystery
A sports writing job would have been the perfect catch for Jordan McAllister, but in Ranchero, Texas, all she could reel in was the food column. Though she may not know her way around a kitchen, she has no trouble finding herself in a kettle of fishâ€¦
Tempted by the offer of a free Caribbean cruise, Jordan accepts a spot as a judge in a week-long big-time cooking competition aboard the Carnation Queen. She just better hope no one finds out that her famous palate is far from refined.
But there are bigger fish to fry when arrogant chef Stefano Mancini falls face first into his signature halibut dish during the first event. While evidence suggests that the handsome Italian chefâ€™s death was an accident, Jordan thinks otherwise. But sheâ€™ll have to keep her wits about herâ€”and the sea sickness pills handyâ€”if sheâ€™s going to solve this oneâ€¦
