The proprietors of A Little Taste of Heaven, their Longely, N.Y., catering company, prepare a Thanksgiving feast for Scrooge-like fireworks manufacturer Monty Field and his family at the Field mansion. When Monty comes into the kitchen to test the roasting turkey, Bernie and Libby watch in horror as Monty taps the pop-up button in the bird's breast and the turkey explodes, blowing off the top of his head. Libby fears their stuffing made the turkey explode, but they soon learn that there was plenty of rivalry among the assembled family members, any one of whom had reason to want Monty dead. A heavy snowstorm ensures the suspects stay put as the sisters start to investigate. That their father, Sean, was on bad terms with the victim complicates their task. The action builds to more fireworks and a dramatic rescue--Publisher's Weekly.… (mere)

My mom got this book from her library's book exchange area and passed it on to me to read. The Field family is not very likable, though I think that is by design. They are all in it for themselves and what they can get out of it. I didn't really enjoy the sister sleuth characters, Bernie and Libby, much either. Though they work together, I often felt like Bernie was forcing Libby to go along. This might be a good thing since Libby is so timid seeming that she might not ever do anything out of her comfort zone without some prodding, but over the course of a series, I think it would grind on me. It did even in this one book.

To be fair, the author did create a realistic reason why the sisters would need to do their sleuthing rather than having the police there and have the amateur sleuths interfering in an investigation. The police contacted after Monty dies though don't seem too concerned with preserving evidence in a suspicious death case.

The recipes included (which are at the end of the book rather than interspersed as some culinary cozies do) were not ones I would be interested in making, though they do have a Thanksgiving theme as befits the book. ( )

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I figured I would get in the spirit by reading this book. Needless to say, it didn't hold my interest for long. I got about 1/2 through it and decided that I had better things to read. ( )

Terrible. Could not even finish this dull, dull story with absolutely inane dialogue and unbelievable premise. ( )

Cute little mystery- nothing too different or surprising, but decently written and once you get into the book, quite gripping. I did really enjoy the Agatha Christie-type suspense of a snow bound house party where one of the members is a murderer. However, some of the narrative techniques and red herrings that the author tried to employ were just too threadbare to come off effectively. In the end though, it is a nice, clean, few hours of reading entertainment that I would not feel qualms about recommending to anyone. ( )

It was two days before Thanksgiving, and five members of the Field family were huddled around the fireplace in the study off of the living room.
