A Trifling Murder


A Trifling MurderA Trifling Murder by Jo A. Hiestand
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

We’re back in the little Missouri town of Beaudin Trace for this 2nd book of the Cookies and Kilts cozy mystery series. The story starts in the Community Center with the Scottish Society holding their annual dinner to celebrate Robert Burn’s birthday. Kate has created a trifle from her bakery for their dessert...

However, before they even get to the main course, a haggle breaks out between the current President and the “Hopes to be President” and a knife happens to end up in his or her chest.
This is a fun cozy and I enjoyed it as much as I did the first book, Shortbread and Dead. The author always builds the plot around food and murder in this series. What a hoot. But this isn’t just another “bakery cozy”. The author pays attention to detail as well as to her characters. The mystery always has a few tricks and treats thrown in to throw us off figuring out the evil-doer. I love a good mystery where you can picture the town and its people, there are definitely a few quirky ones here.

If you aren’t careful you may end up searching your brain for rhyming words. You may be a poet and don’t know it.
