Banana Split Giveaway & Review

Who doesn't love to spend a lazy day reading a good book during the summer? I've been cramming in as many books as I can and I still haven't made a dent in my To-Read pile. I love reading, and lately I've been using it as a reward when I get a certain amount of editing or writing done. So to celebrate with you, I'm participating in this hop and giving away two copies of Josi Kilpack's culinary mystery, BANANA SPLIT. Two lucky winners will each receive one copy (courtesy of her publisher). I was lucky enough to receive a review copy of the book, so I get to tell you what I think.

BANANA SPLIT was my favorite book in the Sadie Hoffmiller culinary mystery series. It may have had something to do with the fact that the book is set in beautiful Kauai, which I just traveled to in May (and coincidentally did a lot of research for a book that I am writing which will be set in Kauai as well). But the biggest reason I liked this book is that the writing is solid, the characters are developed, and Josi had my mind spinning trying to figure out whodunit. It seemed like everyone was keeping a secret and although Sadie was in a fragile state of mind, she still pulled off an excellent investigation to help a young boy answer questions about his mother's death.
If you click on the Amazon link below, you can read the blurb about the book and more reviews. Check out all of the books in this series and learn more about Josi at her website,
