Review: The Corpse Who Knew Too Much (A Food Blogger Mystery) by Debra Sennefelder

Food blogger Hope Early takes on a cold case that’s heating up fast– The Corpse Who Knew Too Much (A Food Blogger Mystery) by Debra Sennefelder

Hope Early is a very busy person. Creating and cooking new recipes for her food blog, teaching a blogging class at the local library, and getting involved in yet another murder, she doesn’t have much time for herself. 

Hope’s high school friend, Devon, is back in town, with her true-crime podcast, to investigate the disappearance of her mother twenty years prior. She plans to turn the town upside down and shake it until she gets her answers. When she turns up dead, it is up to Hope to find those answers. Someone in town has been keeping decades-old secrets and they don’t want them to come out.

This is another great mystery from this author. The clues add up bit by bit and lead in an interesting direction. She also does a fantastic job of letting the reader in on the nitty-gritty of blogging and social media presence. Those touches, along with mouth-watering descriptions of the various recipes and dishes Hope tries out on her friends and family make this a must read.

This is book four so there is a bit of history in the story and between the characters. I do think it reads well as a standalone, but it would be worth it to start at the beginning just to get the flair and of course the recipes, several of which are included at the end of the story.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

Food blogger Hope Early takes on a cold case that’s heating up fast . . .

Building on her recipe for success with her food blog, Hope at Home, Hope is teaching her first blogging class at the local library in Jefferson, Connecticut. She’s also learning about podcasts, including a true-crime one called Search for the Missing, hosted by Hope’s childhood friend, Devon Markham. Twenty years ago on Valentine’s Day, right here in Jefferson, Devon’s mom disappeared and was never found. Finally Devon has returned to solve the mystery of what happened to her mother—and she asks Hope to help.

The next day Hope discovers Devon’s apartment has been ransacked. Her laptop with the research on her mother’s cold case is missing, and Devon is nowhere to be found. When her friend’s body is later discovered in a car wreck, Hope is convinced it’s no accident. Clearly, Devon was too close to the truth, and the cold-blooded killer is still at large in Jefferson. Now it’s up to Hope to find the guilty party—before the food blogger herself becomes the next subject of another true-crime podcast . . .
