My favorite part about cozy mysteries are when they have a holiday theme. And Halloween is my favorite holiday! If you want to get in a Halloween mood, A Waffle Lot of Murder will get you there fast. Even here in California with triple-digit heat, I still feel the brisk winds of Fall closing in.
In addition to haunted houses, the book also contains three recipes from the plot: Pumpkin Spice Waffles, Breakfast Pie, and for the less culinary, a Vanilla Cinnamon Creamer. Yum! The mystery was challenging. The characters were genuine. A Waffle Lot of Murder is highly recommended. 4 stars!
Thanks to the author, Great Escapes Virtual Book Tours, and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.

For diner owner Gia Morelli, her seasonal fall menu calls for two main ingredients—maple syrup and murder . . .
While the first hints of autumn grace Boggy Creek, Florida, Gia misses the colorful harvest traditions she left behind in New York. On a scramble to make new fall memories—and promote her irresistible pumpkin spice waffles—things take a dark turn when she gets roped into the Haunted Town Festival, a spooky celebration held on deserted farmlands. The desolate area conjures plenty of eerie vibes at night, but Gia and her best friend, Savannah, are nearly frightened to death upon the discovery of the event organizer’s body buried in the nearby woods. More alarming, the local rumor mill says the woman’s shady dealings may have egged someone into sending her to an early grave. Now, there’s no shortage of creepy clues to feast on as Gia and her pals try to stop a killer with a very scary appetite . . .
Includes recipes from the All-Day Breakfast Café!
