The Corpse Who Knew Too Much

 This is the 4th installment in the Food Blogger series by Debra Sennefelder.  This book focuses on Hope's relationships with friends from her childhood and centers around a missing person case from 20 years prior when she was in high school.  The mother of a friend went missing and now this friend, Devon,  has returned to town to try to determine what happened back then.  Unfortunately the truth of that event is not the only past secret that is dredged up in this story.  

Hope manages to alienate quite a few members of her small CT town while trying to assist Devon and her sister Felice determine what really happened to their mother.  Some of these relationships will be more difficult to mend than others.  The book also delves deeper into Hope's relationship with Jack.   All in all it is a good read with plenty of plot twists.  At times the story could use a bit more details but it is still an enjoyable read.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Hope Early continues to be a strong female character in this cozy mystery series. This book has plenty of shocking reveals and unexpected criminals. The book does a great job of showing Hope’s struggles with her relationships while pursuing her natural curiosity. The book is the 3rd in the food blogger series but can be read alone
