Once I read the first book in this series, Liver Let Die, I wanted to read this one.  It took me awhile to get my hands on it, but once I did I zipped through it.

Jordan now officially has the food column in her paper (as well as the personals) complete with some (few) perks and a (slight) pay raise.   To go with this permanent promotion, she has to deal with some less than ideal situations.  Like dealing with a known womanizer (which is uncomfortable), oh and some murder (I'm sure you can imagine this isn't especially ideal).

I'm not sure what exactly draws me to this series.  Maybe it's that I'm just about as clueless as Jordan when it comes to cooking (not quite - I can follow a recipe, I just don't choose to).  Or perhaps there's something else in the writing that I just can't name.  But I found this to be a fun addition to what seems to be a fun series.

Now I just have to get my hands on the third book, Murder for the Halibut.
