The only thing Eleanor Swift loves more then A Slice of Delight--her Timber Ridge, North Carolina pizzeria--is her sister Maddy. So when Maddy's cheating ex-husband Grant shows up with some pie-in-the-sky idea to win Maddy back, Eleanor is happy to see her sister swiftly show him the door. But they both know Grant isn't done yet. . .
Especially when he picks a fight with Maddy's fiancée Bob in front of the whole town at the annual Founder's Day Festival. Naturally, when Grant is later found stabbed in the heart with a barbeque skewer, Bob is featured on the police chief's menu as Suspect #1. And when it turns out that Maddy stands to gain a different kind of dough--and lots of it--from Grant exiting this world, she and Eleanor know it's up to them to cook up an investigation to find the real killer.
Was it that female singer at the festival who wanted a word with the recently deceased? Or maybe Grant's haughty sister, who's colder then a day-old pizza? Or Grant's "business partner," who seemingly had the opportunity, means, and motive to mortally skewer Maddy's ex-husband? Only one thing is for sure: Eleanor and Maddy need to turn up the heat and deliver this killer. . .or their next scrumptious pizza may be their last!
Includes a delicious pizza recipe!

Chris Cavender is the pseudonym for an Agatha Award nominated author who has appeared on the Independent Mystery Booksellers Association national bestseller list nine times. He’s published
A Slice of Murder, Pepperoni Pizza Can Be Murder, A Pizza to Die For, Rest in Pizza, and Killer Crust, also featuring Eleanor Swift; over 80 mystery short stories; and has been nominated for three Derringer Awards for excellence in short mystery fiction.
In the latest in Cavender’s Pizza Lovers series, Maddy, co-owner with her sister, Eleanor, of the Slice of Delight pizza shop, is concerned when her ex-husband, Grant, returns to Timber Ridge determined to get together with her. When Grant’s body is later discovered, the police suspect Bob, Maddy’s fiancé. The sisters begin by asking questions of an attractive singer in a band who seemed to be friendly with Grant. The police also want to know why Grant’s mother left Maddy something in her will, a bequest that was news to Maddy. In between running the pizza shop, Maddy digs deeper into Grant’s life and business associates, prompting a hostile reaction from Grant’s sister. This series remains delicious fun, with a well-developed cast and enough red herrings and possible motives strewn about to puzzle readers focused on whodunit. The pseudonymous Cavender, who writes the Donut Mystery series as Jessica Beck, will continue to draw food mystery fans with her appealing blend of crime, recipes, and, of course, pizza. --Amy Alessio
