Review: Murder for the halibut - Liz Lipperman

Murder For The Halibut by Liz Lipperman is the third book in the “Clueless Cook” mystery series. Publisher: Berkley Prime Crime, December 2012

Tempted by the offer of a free Caribbean cruise, Jordan accepts a spot as a judge in a week-long big-time cooking competition aboard the Carnation Queen. She just better hope no one finds out that her famous palate is far from refined.  But there are bigger fish to fry when arrogant chef Stefano Mancini falls face first into his signature halibut dish during the first event. While evidence suggests that the handsome Italian chef’s death was an accident, Jordan thinks otherwise. But she’ll have to keep her wits about her—and the sea sickness pills handy—if she’s going to solve this one.

This book is awesome. Jordan is on a cruise judging a competition when one of the contestant suddenly dies. Was it an accident? or murder? Jordan has other ideas when she overhears a conversation that points to something sinister and as such, puts her and her friends on the hunt for a murderer. The author did a good job in delivering a delightfully entertaining whodunit that I could not put down and did not want to see end. The dialogue was engagingly witty and the scene with “sweetbread”; Priceless. This is the best book in this fabulous series and I can’t wait for the next exciting adventures with Jordan and her friends.
