A Measure of Murder: A Sally Solari Mystery
Sally Solari leads a deliciously complicated life. She has inherited Gauguin, an upscale restaurant, from her aunt, complete with all of the headaches that brings with it, including staffing issues and the odd kitchen fire. Meanwhile, she’s still helping her father at Solari’s, their family’s Italian restaurant. Combine that with taking care of an inherited dog, house, and vintage auto, landing an alto spot with the local chorus, and dealing with an ex-boyfriend, and it makes one wonder how she would find the time to become involved in another murder. However, when the lead tenor in the chorus dies during the first rehearsal and his grieving girlfriend begs Sally to do some investigating, she finds it impossible to say no.
Leslie Karst bring whips up another tasty story in the second in her Sally Solari Mysteries, A Measure of Murder. Her wit is as razor sharp as chef’s knives, and with the liberal toss of red herrings into the mix, this savory story is sure to be as much of a hit as the first.
The addition of the recipes is a lovely touch, and I must admit to doing a little damage to the book as I was cooking and reading! Truly a pleasure!
