Just when I thought Summer Prescott might be running out of words, I discovered the Hawg Heaven series of culinary cozy mysteries. I’m wondering if she’s either really a robot, or several people? Can’t be, the books are all too much fun to read!
These mysteries center on a military widow whose husband was killed in the line of duty. She goes back to her childhood home with her son, buys an old building, and starts an eatery called Hawg Heaven with lots of scrumptious pork and bacon dishes. Everything goes great until a dead body turns up and scary characters threaten her.
Believe it or not (after that last post about the 32-book series), Summer Prescott has produced yet another cozy mystery series. Chasand Missyand the gang continue their adventures in Calgon at the inn and cupcake shop in this 15 or 16 book series, depending on whether a 12th book shows up. The first book is Irish Creme Killer. Characters from the Frosted Love series appear in this series also, so if you’re a fan of Spencer(my personal fave), Izzy, Tim, Echo, or the others, you’ll get to read more about them, too.
I love reading series, I love cozy mysteries, and I love reading about things I seldom eat but wish I could eat more of. I mean, I’d weigh a ton if I ate cupcakes every day, but reading about people baking cupcakes costs me no calories, right? This series has everything… food, romance, plus an inn. Inns are excuses to have all kinds of unsavory guests and serve lots of fattening food, with endless possibilities for plot variations, and endless cupcake flavors.
This series has 32 books! Yes, now you can binge-read big time. For a long, long time. In these books, Missy Gladstone and Detective Chas Beckett team up to solve a murder in the tiny town of Calgon. The first book in the series is Murder Moist Fowl.
