Publisher's Summary

The food here is to die for... 

Thirty-year-old Allie Treadwell is a singleton. She's a foodie and a runner. A restaurant reviewer by day, and a Netflix aficionado by night.

Even if it doesn’t make her the most popular dinner guest in the charming southern town of Lanai, Georgia, Allie’s reviews are always honest.

And her latest is no different from any other. 

But Allie’s review isn’t the only thing to hit the newsstand. The restaurant’s owner and Allie’s one-time high school nemesis, Jessica Hayes, was found murdered. When Jessica’s husband, Miller, is labeled the prime suspect, Allie’s convinced the police are mistaken.

As if dodging the bad press while she works to clear Miller’s name isn't enough, one false step could put the real killer onto her. 

Can Allie clear Miller’s name without winding up with the next obituary? 

Foodie Files Mysteries are quick reads of around 30,000 words.

This book contains no swearing, no gore, and no cliffhangers.

A quick modern cozy

I'm a big fan of cozy mysteries- but sometimes they seem like they're written by your great Aunt Ethel- and seem pretty dated. Not so with this one! The Salty Taste of Murder has a realistic young main character who is a food blogger who loves Netflix and talks and acts like the young person she is. Even though this book is fairly short- I enjoyed getting to know the characters- and was rooting for the heroine (and her possible love interest?) by the end of the book. I also enjoyed hearing about her food blogs- but if I had a suggestion I'd like to hear more about that in future books- and maybe even include a recipe or two? I'd highly recommend this as a quick modern cozy! (This book was provided to me at no cost in exchange for an honest review)

Tasty fun

This was my first food related cozy. I enjoyed the characters and didn’t see the end coming. The narrator was pretty good but at times did get a little monotone. It wasn’t enough to make me want to stop listening and I’ll get more books in the series. I also grabbed the first in one of the author’s other series.
