Culinary Mysteries

I love the series with recipes. Diane Mott Davidson write about Goldy Bear, a caterer, who marries a police detective. She puts her recipes in the books. Tamar Myers also does this with her Mennonite character Magdalena Yoder. There are others like this, too. Does anyone have a favorite? Patti

Has anyone else read Prime Cut by Diane Mott Davidson. It wasn't bad but I like some of her earlier ones better.

I LOVE the cullinary mysteries. I don't know why. I enjoy: Diane Mott Davidson, Tim Hemlin, Lou Jane Temple, Joanne Pence, Philip Craig, and probably some I've forgotten. I haven't tried any of the recipes yet.

I haven't read any cullinary mysteries except for Diane Mott Davidson. And I love her books. I just got her Tough Cookie and am looking forward to reading it.

Ihave tried some of her recipes with good results

Where have all the culinary mystery fans gone? I hope you're still out there. I'll be starting a new story and have a couple of questions for you: 1. Do you expect or want actual recipes to be included in the books along with the story? 2. If so, do you prefer the recipes integrated in the text of the story or at the end? Thank you! Joanne Pence, author of the Angie Amalfi mysteries,

I prefer them at the end, so they are easier to find. Too often I know which book they are from but can't find them in the text. By the way, your books are great

You can check out anytime you like...but you can never leave!

I also prefer the recipes at the end. I find it distracting when it is in the middle of a chapter.

My three special angels.....

Hi All, Just finished reading THE CHOCOLATE COOKIE MURDER by Joanne Fluke. It was wonderful. Her heroine, Hannah Swensen, owns a cookie shop in Lake Eden, Minnesota. For a first novel, it makes me want to go back for more. Her latest, THE STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE MURDER, is on my shelf waiting to be read. The recipes in the books are also great. Have tried Chocolate Chip Crunchies and highly recommend. Happy Reading Everyone. Carol

I like the recipes to be at the end. I got started on cooking mysteries after reading "The Cooking School Murders". i forget the author, but she had a grandmotherly sleuth like Miss Marple and great recipes. She (the author ) died and Nancy Pickard finished her last book. Can anyone supply the author's name?!

Marsha Francis - 07:17pm May 21, 2003 PST(#26 of 28)

The name of the late author was Virginia Rich

why do you like culinary mysteries?

I guess a lot of people are interested in both cooking and mysteries! It's fun to read new recipes and try them out for yourself. It's also something that a vast number of people can relate to.
