starts out her White House Chef mystery series with a bang and a complete Presidential menu of recipes in the back of the book. I can't wait for the next one!

White House Chef
1. State of the Onion

She also has two books about Chicago news researcher Alex St. James that I haven't read yet.

1. Deadly Blessings
2. Deadly Interest

Okay, here's my question. Why do cosy mysteries have to use twee little puns for their titles. (Is it puns that I mean?) Is it the same sort of shoot-your-genre-in-the-foot attitude that puts ridiculously OTT 'clinch' pictures on the covers of romances?

Well, anyway, I've had pathetic pun overload and am only going to read cosy mysteries with proper titles from now on - lol - once I get through the stuff in my TBR!

Proper titles, hear! Like The Body in the Moonlight, The Body in the Vestibule, The Body in the Cast ... Oh my! It is apparently a requirement that cosy mysteries have twee titles.

Just like with the cover art, it's all about catching your eye and making you look twice at the book.

The Body in the Gallery comes out in April! ;)
