By Cook Or By Crook
by Maya Corrigan
This cozy mystery had a lot to offer. Several mysteries, lots of colorful characters, danger, and romance.
Laura’s Ramblins and Reviews
Maya Corrigan serves up a tasty blend of mystery, small-town charm, and a hint of romance in By Cook or By Crook. I really enjoyed getting to know Val Denniston, her lovably curmudgeonly grandfather, and the Eastern Maryland town of Bayport…

This first book in Maya Corrigan’s Five-Ingredient Mystery series is a mouth-watering delight for fans of culinary cozies.

I enjoyed this first book in a new series with recipes that only have 5 ingredients…my kind of recipe! I liked all of the characters and have to say the author throws out some great red herrings…
This is such a fun cozy mystery! I loved it. Val and her grandfather are really well-developed characters and made the story really enjoyable.

(A Five-Ingredient Mystery)
New Cozy Series
Mass Market Paperback: 320 pages
Publisher: Kensington (November 4, 2014)
Take one burned-out city girl. Add a crusty codger, a pinch of gossip, and a dash of romance. Stir in a generous helping of murder and you’ve got the ingredients for one truly delicious mystery…
Haunted by the car accident that ended her career as a cookbook publicist, Val Deniston has traded in the chaos of New York City for a quieter life near the Chesapeake Bay. Living with her curmudgeonly grandfather in the tourist town of Bayport is hardly glamorous, but she enjoys working at the Cool Down Café at the local fitness club, and she finally has time to work on her long-planned cookbook. But when one of the club’s patrons is found dead, she’ll have to cook up a scheme to find the killer.
Includes 8 five-ingredient recipes!
