There is something very fun about a book that gives you something to take away and use in your everyday life. I don't mean mere advice on how to live your life to the fullest or how to become an amateur detective. I am referring to books that provide the reader with gluttonous urges to run to the kitchen and test out an author's latest tempting treat. Some of the greatest mysteries I have encountered answer this call by supplying the reader with recipes and ideas to try on their own. In case you too wondered what reads might tempt you to wander into cozy culinary success, a few must-haves are listed below:
Goldy Bear Culinary Mysteries, by Diane Mott Davidson
Coffeehouse Mysteries, by Cleo Coyle
A Mystery A La Mode Series, by Wendy Lyn Watson
Cupcake Bakery Mysteries, by Jenn McKinlay
Please let us know if there is a particular book or series that inspires you to take action (either in the kitchen or elsewhere)?
