The town of Wrensdale is abuzz with excitement when Steeltop Foods sponsors a cooking contest to promote its new product, the Flavor Dial. With a $25,000 prize at stake, all the contestants are on edge, including Talia Marby, owner of Fry Me A Sliver. She hopes her mini deep-fried apple pies will win her the money to pay off the renovations on her restaurant. But when Norma Ferguson wins with her flaky-top chicken stew, the tensions dial up even more. 
After Norma is found dead at her cooking station, the police suspect a losing contestant got a little too hot under the collar. Now its crunch time as Talia works to catch the killer and clear her name before another cook gets burned. 
Includes delicious recipes!"

Tina's Review

I knew I was in for a delicious mystery with A Frying Shame. Reading about Talia in her Eatery, Fry me a Sliver, cooking up delicious fish and other delectable entries with her friends made me want to be there and be her friend too, it made it a fun mystery.

A fast-paced mystery cleverly plotted and written. My favorite foodie mysteries are ones with cooking competitions. Talia's Deep Fried apple pies was a perfect fit for the cook-off/bake-off.

Maybe I'm a little biased when it comes to foodie mysteries but it's for good reason. Author Linda Reilly writes about food and mystery with perfection.
