From Publishers Weekly
Pizza lovers will relish the pseudonymous Cavender's delightful first in a new cozy series, which introduces Eleanor Swift, owner of A Slice of Life, a pizzeria in Timber Ridge, N.C. When late one winter night Eleanor delivers a pizza (one of my specials decked out with pepperoni, sausage, ham, bacon, hamburger, and little bits of sliced sirloin), she finds her customer, Richard Olsen, lying dead on the floor with a kitchen knife in his chest. Kevin Hurley, the surly local police chief who pursued her back in high school, responds to her 911 call. Suspecting Eleanor is guilty, Kevin does his best to make her life difficult. Olsen's dotty sister thinks so, too, but once she's convinced of Eleanor's innocence, she asks Eleanor's help in solving the murder. Eleanor's occasionally married sister, Maddy, assists in the sleuthing. A lively pace and a thrilling climax more than compensate for some distracting chatter and not always relevant sibling spats.

I'm passing it on in person this weekend to bookstogive whom I am meeting for the first time at the 10th Anniversary Bookcrossing Convention in Washington DC! I hope to read it in the next few days, but that remains to be seen! ;)

Journal Entry 3 by Ri at Cincinnati, Ohio USA on Saturday, April 30, 2011
Just a mediocre cozy. The story is overpopulated with so many characters that I couldn't always keep people straight, especially if I set the book down for a couple days. I am usually quite willing to suspend my disbelief readily when reading cozies, but this final scene was a little much for me to buy. I probably won't seek out any more books in this series, but if one falls in my lap I would probably give it another try. Oh, and the chief is just annoying. ;)

I didn't finish this in time to hand off to bookstogive at the convention, so I'll be mailing it off to her.

My Review: This was a cute story! Not the best cozy, but not the worst, I've ever read. It was entertaining and fun. One drawback, all the talk about pizza kept making me hungry. ;-)
