Cooking up a Good Mystery

December 02, 2010

Writers are so creative with their titles and book content. To combine food and a murder mystery makes for a great book, especially if you like both. 

Tiles, such as Crime Brulee and Dying For Chocolate, make you want to read and cook at the same time.
I found some mystery writers that write about food. Many of the books include some recipes. Some of these authors are:

Isis Crawford  Lou Jane Temple
Denise Dietz Josi Kilpack
Ellen Hart  J. B. Stanley
Diane Mott Davidson Nancy Herndon
Claudia Temple  

Check out Fiction Connection in the MCPL resource databases under Books and Reading, type in culinary mysteries, or just go to on the internet.
Curl up with a good mystery book, and then head to the kitchen to bake up some food to share while you discuss the book with family and friends. Enjoy!
