"Murphy's Mercantile, known as the Merc, has been a staple in Jewel Bay for over a hundred years. To celebrate their recent makeover as a gourmet food market, Erin has organized a town festival, Festa di Pasta, featuring the culinary goods of Jewel Bay's finest--including her mother Fresca's delicious Italian specialties. But Erin's sweet success is soured when the shop's former manager, Claudette, is found dead behind the Merc on the Festa's opening night. With rival chef James Angelo stirring up rumors that Fresca's sauce recipes were stolen from Claudette, Erin's mother is under close scrutiny. Now Erin will have to hunt down some new suspects, or both her family and her store might wind up in hot water..."--P. [4] of cover.

Well written and interesting. I enjoy this author's books both set in Seattle and in Montana. You get a bit of local flavor and interest and they are well written. She doesn't dumb anything down and the characters are complex.

Although I did enjoy this book, I found many of the characters rather hostile. Maybe as the series proceeds this will improve. Her relationship with her mother seems particularly convoluted and hostile. I liked the book enough to give another one a go,

First in the food lover's village mystery series. Something to read to pass away the time. The family setting running a store and the description of the food made the book interesting. The murder part of the story was okay.
