This is the twelfth book in the super fun Cookbook Nook Mysteries by one of my fave cozy authors, Daryl Wood Gerber. Unfortunately, the Goodreads page was made without a link to the series name, but you can look at the author’s page to see the others. Jenna’s sleuthing abilities have really grown over the twelve books, and she’s actually pretty useful to the police. And of course, she digs in and sleuths regardless of what Cinnamon says, lol.

My Goodreads review:
Poaching Is Puzzling: A Cookbook Nook Mystery #12 by Daryl Wood Gerber
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Poor Aunt Vera! When a crossword expert was killed, he happened to be an old friend of hers, but the worst part was being a suspect for his murder. Jenna was more invested than ever to figure this out. Cinnamon always cracks me up at how stern she comes off and warns Jenna, then she turns around and admits there’s just something about our Jenna girl that people like and love to talk to. Hey she’s got charisma, lol. But Jenna and Cinnamon have been getting along lately, at least tons better than in the early books, and Jenna does do her best to make sure she keeps that friendship. Even prickly Pepper, Cinnamon’s mom isn’t quite as bad as she was once.
Rhett and Jenna are the cutest married couple! It hasn’t changed a thing (unlike how some fave sleuth couples that got married on TV and the show got cancelled shortly after) between them, and while Rhett worries about her, he’s not about to squelch her curiosity. Jenna had another life-threatening showdown but she had a trick up her sleeve too, so all was well in Crystal Cove once the perp (who I hadn’t guessed this time) was hauled away. Vera and Marlon were another super cute couple even though the poor guy couldn’t work the case for most of the book. Can’t wait to see what our fave cove dwellers get into in the next book!
I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book provided by Beyond the Page via NetGalley, and my opinions are my own.
