Book description
Former reality TV baking show contestant and recent divorcée Hope Early is trying to find her recipe for success as a food blogger—but murder keeps getting in the mix . . . When Hope’s elderly neighbor perishes in a home fire, she can't help but feel somewhat responsible. Only the day before, Peggy Olson had called her over, having burned a pot on the stove while she was sleeping and filling the house with smoke. In fact, she couldn't even remember cooking. Clearly, it was dangerous for the woman to live alone. But it turns out she wasn't alone. When a second body is discovered in the basement of the burned house, suddenly what appeared to be a tragic accident is beginning to look like premeditated murder. As rumors spread like wildfire, Hope is determined to sort out the facts and smoke out a killer, but she might be jumping from the frying pan straight into the fire . . . Includes Recipes from Hope’s Kitchen!

My thoughts
I enjoyed this book and thought it was fun.  Although it did touch on some real life issues of memory loss, which for me hit home as I had/have two grandma's that went though/going through this very issue. I like how the story flows and the author gives you more than one suspect.  The food blogger part of the story just adds a neat little touch for me. I look forward to more books in this series and watching as the characters grow.
