One Taste Too Many (A Sarah Blair Mystery)
by Debra H. Goldstein
ONE TASTE TOO MANY is a “different,” slightly edgy, cozy from an author with extensive knowledge of legal procedure.
~Mallory Heart’s Cozies
This one was a fun ride. A few twists that will keep you turning the pages may be a little slower to keep up.
~My Reading Journeys
What a fun engaging start to a new series!
~Cozy Up With Kathy
I kept changing who I suspected but when the real murderer is revealed, I was shocked! I did not see that one coming at all.
It is exciting and fresh with plenty of twists and corkscrew turns. The author drops in the clues with such precision. I was up in the air about the killer right up until the big reveal.
~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book
I love culinary mysteries and One Taste Too Many was a delightfully entertaining story that had me wanting to visit Emily’s restaurant for a bite of one of her amazing dishes.
The mystery is well plotted and was carried on well throughout the entire book. There were a lot of twists and turns and red herrings thrown in to make this a more difficult mystery to solve.
One Taste Too Many is a lighthearted cozy mystery . . . will appeal to those who delight in pet and food cozy mysteries with a perplexing whodunit.
~The Avid Reader
The author weaves several subplots into the central murder mystery, providing lots of twists and turns with many suspects.
~Cinnamon, Sugar and a Little Bit of Murder
This well-written read is sure to be enjoyed by lovers of culinary cozies.
The characters literally jump off the pages (or in my case off my e-reader screen). Sarah and Emily are a wonderful sister pair.
~Socrates’ Book Reviews…
I really enjoyed the authors writing style which made the story flow well. I thought the plot was well thought out and the mystery was great with many twists and turns to keep me guessing
~Melina’s Book Blog
Overall, this book is a testament to what a cozy mystery series should be like. Enjoyable characters with a victim that you will dislike and a cat that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy.

For culinary challenged Sarah Blair, there’s only one thing scarier than cooking from scratch—murder!
Married at eighteen, divorced at twenty‑eight, Sarah Blair reluctantly swaps her luxury lifestyle for a cramped studio apartment and a law firm receptionist job in the tired hometown she never left. With nothing much to show for the last decade but her feisty Siamese cat, RahRah, and some clumsy domestic skills, she’s the polar opposite of her bubbly twin, Emily—an ambitious chef determined to take her culinary ambitions to the top at a local gourmet restaurant . . .
Sarah knew starting over would be messy. But things fall apart completely when her ex drops dead, seemingly poisoned by Emily’s award-winning rhubarb crisp. Now, with RahRah wanted by the woman who broke up her marriage and Emily wanted by the police for murder, Sarah needs to figure out the right recipe to crack the case before time runs out. Unfortunately, for a gal whose idea of good china is floral paper plates, catching the real killer and living to tell about it could mean facing a fate worse than death—being in the kitchen!
Includes quick and easy recipes!
