Book Review: A Calculated Whisk
A Calculated Whisk by Victoria Hamilton
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
The tenth installment in the Vintage Kitchen Mystery series finds Jaymie Leighton determined to solve not just one, but two murders – and one of those was five years ago. What connects both these tragedies is young Mia, a grade-school girl with a life-changing tragedy of her own.
If you enjoy cozy small-town settings, with their inevitable scandals, secrets and alliances, you’ll like following along as Jaymie tries to solve two seemingly unrelated murders that have torn a family to pieces. The deeper she digs, the more secrets she finds… and the longer the list of suspects grows.
Written in a relaxed, detail-oriented style, with much of the sleuthing taking the form of chatty conversations, this story makes a nice companion for your relaxing tea-breaks.
My thanks to author Victoria Hamilton, Beyond the Page Publishing, and NetGalley for allowing me to read a digital advance review copy of this book. This review is my honest and unbiased opinion.
