Mergency room where her date is DOAWhen Rusty's mother begs her for help Jordan knows she needs to grab the bull by the horns and get to the bottom of this mystery before she corrals herself into troubleINCLUDES RECIPES. Jordan McAllister might be rather clueless when it comes to cooking but she sure has the readers of the Ranchero Globe fooled with her weekly food columns She has caught the eye of a local rancher who has invited her to the Cattleman's Ball with the hopes that her review will boost beef sales in the area He even provided her with a swoon worthy date who unfortunately dies in her arms later that night Jordan uickly finds herself mixed up in uite a few mysterious involving people scared for their safely in ways than one I really enjoyed the first book in this series The seuel definitely didn't disappoint The mystery and side mysteries ghosts at the lake house and Maria were really well done and kept me guessing for uite some time All were well paced the clues were slowly delivered and there was plenty of suspects to work through However what I absolutely love about this series are the characters Jordan is a great lead She is funny her big heart often gets her in trouble and she has the most amazing group of really great friends All of my favs from her apartment returned for this book as well as their appetites They love to hang out eat and just have a fun time together It feels like a true friendship amongst all of them Sandy made a great addition to the group I also really liked meeting Jordan's brother Danny I hope he moves to Ranchero and becomes a permanent character Too bad Rusty was the main victim Sounds like he would have made a fun character I believe Alex needs to make a few appearances as well I also love the setting Being a native Texan it is so easy to relate to the descriptions of a North Texas town and the wealthy ranchers that live there There's no doubt that the author resides in this area and has gotten great inspiration from her surroundings This is definitely a great Culinary Cozy It cracks me up that Jordan uses other resident's recipes and just renames them something fancy for her food column The girl doesn't even know how to cook lol The food descriptions definitely leave your mouth watering at times The book includes several recipes at the end I'd love to try Maria's Sangria The third book is already lined up and waiting on my shelf The characters discussed going on a Caribbean cruise together to help judge a food competition It will be fun to see the lot of them out of their normal Texan environment
