Angie Turner is all prepped to face Boise’s culinary best when she enters her restaurant, The County Seat, into a big State Fair challenge. Instead, she gets dunked into a new murder investigation after a killer starts scrapping her competition . . .
The Idaho State Fair is in full swing and chefs are lining up to enter Boise’s Best Restaurant contest, including Angie and her County Seat crew.
They might be the hometown favorite, but the competition is steeper than a funhouse floor. And when a top contender is felled following a heated confrontation over a corn dog recipe, winning suddenly becomes a matter of life or death.
With a foul foodie on the prowl, it’s up to Angie to dig into the case and put a murderer on ice.

Title: Deep Fried Revenge

Genre: Cozy Mystery
Published: April 7, 2020
Publisher: Kensington Books
My Rating: 4.5 stars
Even though I came in late to this particular series with the recent holiday novella, I’m absolutely loving the Farm-to-Fork Mystery series. The characters are realistic, the mysteries well, they certainly “could” happen, and the supporting cast is already a favorite of mine. Deep Fried Revenge simply cemented my continuing this series with a well planned out, believable Cozy Mystery that kept my attention glued to my Kindle.
At the Idaho State Fair, Angie and crew are set to enter into the Boise’s Best Restaurant contest which plays out like a TV reality cooking show with deep-seated rivalries in a contest that everyone is desperate to win. So much so that one top contender ends up dead by poison and not only is Angie right in the investigation’s crosshairs but she’s determined to discover exactly who committed this crime because she’s not leaving her freedom up to anyone else but herself and her crew. What follows is a fast-paced search for a killer, an interesting secondary plotline, and so much carnival food that it brought back memories of my own childhood when my parents and I followed our state’s carnival circuit every summer. I was easily swept up in this Cozy Mystery and didn’t even try to solve it along the way – I was having too much fun for that detail.
If you love a really good Cozy Mystery of the foodie style, then you’ll want to pick up Deep Fried Revenge right now and dive into the craziness of the state fair meets a murderer. I had a blast and would definitely recommend.
