The Stalking Grounds

Thursday, Mid-October A bead of sweat rolled down Deputy Mattie Cobb’s face beneath the plastic guard on her helmet. She tilted her head to keep the sweat from going into her eyes and caught a glimpse of the sky.”

My review

The second book continues the story of Mattie Cobb and Robo, a K-9 dog. A missing person case Deputy Ken Brody’s girlfriend is missing. The team begins to search for her but there are almost no clues to where she might be. An anonymous phone sends Mattie and Robo into the high country where they find the body. It is late and Brody leaves to bring the CSI team and supplies. Mattie and Robo stayed with the body. An early snowfall arrives and the night is cold and long. The description is so accurate you are right there with Mattie and Robo.
Dr. Walker leaves at once to take food, tents and other supplies. He arrives in time to help Mattie. I was so engrossed that I read it in one sitting. The sheriff officers find the clue to the answer and headed to arrest the killer, only to learn Dr. Walker has not returned from a visit to the ranch.  I HIGHLY recommend this book and series.

MINCED, MARINATED AND MURDER By Noel Balen

30221789

The first and new series showcasing good tasting cuisine and its and bouchons (aka restaurants). In Lyons, France you will find many bouchons dating back to the World War years. Laure Grenadier, a food journalist along with her photographer, Paco Alvarez are in Lyons to do an article on the bouchons and special food dishes. We travel with as they sample the dishes, Laure writes the text and Paco takes photos of the dishes. Often the recipes are included in body of the book. Shortly, after they arrive one of the chefs is brutally murder. This is followed by a second victim. Laure aids the police in finding the solution to the cases. I did have a problem with following the story as I am not familiar with the French words. This book was written in French and has been translated into English. The mystery is no much as the food and restaurants are more important. I recommend this book for those wishing to know more about the Cuisine of France.

Disclosure: Many thanks to LeFrench for my copy to review. The opinions expressed are my own.
