An Eggnog to Die for: 04/10/22
An Eggnog to Die for by Amy Pershing is the second book in the Cape Cod Foodie mystery series. Ex-chef Sam Barnes finds herself going viral again when she's caught on video proclaiming that "Santa is dead." She had found the town's Santa dead in an office at a local cocktail bar.
To confuse matters, Sam's parents are visiting from Florida. They had lived for years on the Cape but had retired to warmer climes. Rather than rent a hotel room, they chose to stay with Sam in her still mostly ramshackle cottage. While she's glad to have them back on the Cape, she's frustrated at how they aren't quite like how they used to be.
This mystery takes a while to get going — to get all the pieces together. Even the murder weapon takes some time to identify. The lack of information combined with the holiday mayhem keeps things interesting and moving at an enjoyable clip.
The third book is Murder is No Picnic and is scheduled for release on June 7, 2022.
