First I would like to say that there are a couple of recipes at the back of this book that I definitely am going to try-I'll give you a hint--they both include avocado! The rest of the recipes will have your mouth watering as well. Now on to my review----
Roger, Liz's husband, was invited to the most exclusive hunting lodge in Texas. Liz did not hunt but decided that since Roger really wanted to do this-they would go. If you have read any of the the other books in this series you will know that Liz is a magnet for murder--and darn good at solving them! Sure enough, they no sooner had gotten there and slept-the next morning Roger's friend was found dead in his room. Now I did mention that Liz was not a hunter so with all that time on her hands she decided to look into the death which she had a feeling was murder. She is also a magnet for dogs. The Bull mastiff, the owner of the lodge's dog--adopted Liz--thank heavens!! She also made friends with the chef which is where she got the recipes and some tricks of the trade which she was planning to use at her hotel and spa, along with information which helped her solve the mystery, and along with the dog--saved her life!! As usual there were several viable suspects--will you be able to figure out who did it? This time I actually was able to--but the story line is so good it kept me reading until the end. And then those recipes!!
About the book: (from Amazon)
What could go wrong at The Big T Lodge, the most expensive and prestigious hunting club in the United States? Well, murder for starters!
When Roger Langley tells his wife, Liz, that they're leaving for Texas in three days for an unexpected hunting trip at the club, neither of them has a clue that Liz will spend most of her time looking for the person who murdered Roger's law school friend, Milt Huston, who just happens to be the Attorney General of California and a candidate for Governor of California.
There's no lack of suspects, but who did it, and what was their motive? Anger from Milt's former lover? Revenge from the lover's husband? Milt's proposed cigarette tax increase despised by a North Carolina tobacco farmer? The California Senator who wants to be Governor of California? Or the chef's assistant who hates Milt's liberal views?
Join Chef Wes, Liz, and her new doggie friend, Sam, a huge bullmastiff, as they search for the murderer and the motive.
