Robbie Jordan kicks as much butt as Jack Reacher…with way better food!

Jay Roberts


You’ll flip for this mouth-watering new series… a tasty mystery with a side of scenic country charm… a delicious read. The rolling hills of southern Indiana never looked so inviting—or so dangerous.

What a terrific debut! This deliciously clever cozy–set in a deceptively charming little town–is fresh, intelligent and delightful. A winner!
