I'm also joining in Book Beginnings on Friday. It's hosted by Rose City Reader

I read the first one in this series and loved it.  I hope I can get to this one soon. Excerpts are from the E-ARC.

First Chapter

Grant Robinson swept through the front door of Carly's Grilled Cheese Eatery and and scooted behind the counter.  "It's over, Carly.  I finally did it.  I gave my notice at the sub shop."

From 56% on my e-reader...

As for Carly, she wasn't a member of any particular church.  Though she tried to lead a spiritual life, she'd never felt comfortable subscribing to a specific religion.

Synopsis from Goodreads:

The second book in a delicious culinary cozy series—the muensters have arrived in Balsam Dell in this Halloween cozy mystery featuring a grilled cheese shop owner turned amateur sleuth

After a long hot summer in Balsam Dell, Carly Hale is ready for crisp Vermont weather and gourmet grilled cheeses at her Grilled Cheese Eatery. And the upcoming Halloween food competition is the perfect way to impress the locals.

But Ferris Menard, the owner of Sub-a-Dub-Sub, is nursing a serious grudge against Carly. Two days before the competition, one of Carly's employees quit his part-time gig at Menard's sub shop, sending Menard into a serious snit. In a confrontation at the Eatery, Menard accused Carly of sabotage and vowed to bring her down.

That's when Menard's body is found in his kitchen the morning after the competition, a steak knife sticking out of his heart. But Menard had a slew of enemies, and if Carly doesn't figure out which one is the culprit, she might find herself—or someone she cares about—serving grilled cheese sandwiches under lock and brie!

  1. The titles of these cozy mysteries always make me laugh, they are so delightful! I wonder if the authors come up with them themselves or if there's someone at the publisher whose sole job it is coming up with amazing pun-ny titles? I hope you enjoy this one and have a lovely weekend :)
