A young chef might bite off more than she can chew when she returns to her Alaskan hometown to take over her parents' diner in this charming first installment in a new cozy mystery series set in an Alaskan tourist town.

When Chef Charlie Cooke is offered the chance to leave San Francisco and return home to Elkview, Alaska, to take over her mother's diner, she doesn't even consider saying no. After all--her love life has recently become a Love Life Crumble, and a chance to reconnect with her roots may be just what she needs.

Determined to bring fresh life and flavors to the Bear Claw Diner, Charlie starts planning changes to the menu, which has grown stale over the years. But her plans are fried when her head cook Oliver turns up dead after a bitter and public fight over Charlie's ideas--leaving Charlie as the only suspect in the case.

With her career, freedom, and life all on thin ice, Charlie must find out who the real killer is, before it's too late

My thoughts
Would I recommend it? Yes
Would I read more of this series ? Yes
Would I read more by this author? yes
This is the first time I've ever read anything by  this author and I don have to say that while I liked it and enjoyed the story it was kind of slow for a cozy mystery. And I tend to read a lot of them , you can say that their one of my go to when I want to just read something and get lost in story and what got me to pick it up in the first place was the title itself. And I even liked the characters and the Charlie's cat name which I thought was funny, the story does pick up the more that you read it and it also have as feel to that there might be a bit more of a something between Charlie and one of the characters.Over all  it had  this had likable characters and a different setting, but the slow pace.But I do want to read more of this series to see if it gets better. With that said I want to thank Edelweiss for letting me read and review .
