Dying for a Taste: A Sally Solari Mystery

We rated this book:


Dying for a Taste is as delicious as a four-course meal. Sally Solari is helping her father manage his restaurant in Santa Cruz, CA. Shortly after Sally’s arrival, Aunt Letta is found murdered in her own restaurant called Gauguin. Police suspect Javier, the chef at Gauguin, is responsible for the murder. Sally isn’t as easily convinced though. She has known Javier for a long time and can’t imagine what motives he would have to commit murder. Now, Sally has two responsibilities: looking after Gauguin and finding the real killer to help Javier stay out of jail. Sally will have to tread lightly since not everyone is thrilled by her amateur detective investigation.

The characterization of Sally Solari is what makes this book work. She’s smart, witty, thoughtful, and not lacking in a sense of humor. She is able to bring the reader right into the heart of the story, making them feel like a part of the family or a cherished customer at the restaurant. This is an enjoyable culinary mystery that will no doubt leave readers hungry for more. Hopefully, Sally will be back soon with more tasty mysteries to solve.
