Music, Mousse and Murder by Lori Woods

Ever since she was a child, Megan Lee loved her mother’s cafe. The Pearl Street Kitchen was a little spot of dining goodness, and big city flavor in the small seaside town of Ampleforth.

But, tragedy strikes at The Pearl Street Kitchen. When one of the performers dies with poison on her lips, and a fork in her hand, it looks like Megan’s dreams for the place are about to crash and burn in a huge way.

When all fingers point to the newest employee as being a conspirator for the murder, Megan has to make a choice to either cut him loose and save her dream, or risk everything and trust him when he swears he’s innocent.

But will digging for the truth put her own life at risk?

And, why does Megan feel an inextricable pull towards the mysterious and handsome reporter, Max?

It’s all up to Megan Lee to find out who killed the songwriter before the killer targets someone else!

All Megan Lee wants is for her reopening of the Pearl Street Kitchen to go well. She wants her mother, Bianca, to approve of the work that she and her best friend Karlie have done in getting the place ready. To make sure that the night goes well, Megan’s booked two acts to perform: Anomaly and Electric Madness.However, all of these plans come to a crashing halt when Anomaly member Destinee keels over dead, murdered by poison in her dessert. Can Megan find out who is behind this nefarious crime, and will the mysterious and handsome Max be a help or an added complication?

Lori Woods gives the readers a murder mystery in a brief read that takes place in just one night. Even though the novel is relatively short, there are several characters to interest the readers, and hints at a couple possible romances that might develop in further works. A supernatural element exists as well in the house spirits that seem to be aiding Megan in her investigation. It’s hard not to enjoy this story, especially as the author has included a recipe for the dessert at the end. (sans poison, of course)

There are a lot of characters involved in this story, and a few threads that are introduced but not really developed in this particular story. A good example is the fate of Megan’s father, who has disappeared and is presumed dead. I expect the author made the choice to keep the story brief and leave some of these other threads for the next stories at the Pearl Street Kitchen, but I personally tend to like things developed further. There are also several characters to juggle, as I’ve said, and not all of them have clear voices or motives. Overall, though, this is a fun and quick read for people who like a little mystery in their romance stories.
