This is the fifth book in the Supper Club series that was given a complete overhaul and now has recipes in each book. There were several memorable things happening in this book and as you’ll see from my Goodreads review below, I didn’t even do a regular synopsis for fear of spoiling something in case someone just surfed in and got this review without reading the others. To get the most enjoyment from the series, I would totally recommend reading it in order.
My Goodreads review:
Black Beans & Vice by Ellery Adams
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The series is just progressively getting better as everyone’s story unfolds and relationships develop while friendships continue to grow. This story was very bittersweet in some spots but the parties involved ended up with a happily ever after or a very nice outcome. There was one little thing that remains hanging but I have no doubt that since it’s been spread over several books, it’ll be resolved soon. A couple of my faves were in physical danger for a bit but all became ok again.
I’m not going to write my usual synopsis since there are quite a few little subplots that I don’t want to spoil for anyone but instead of the usual small mystery happening at the library, something was going on in Jane and James’s lives that had to be taken care of. I didn’t guess the killer at all in the main mystery and even though there was no official showdown except for Lucy telling the story, sometimes I like it that way. The police have handled it, our friends aren’t in danger. I really love that Lucy became a deputy since it’s caused the sheriff’s department to put more faith in the five friends than they would have in the beginning. Lucy’s a good deputy too and she fiercely protects her friends while doing everything within the law. I think they might have come to a truce with Murphy as well!
Moving along to the seventh and final (for now, I hope there will be more!) book.
