Any number of suspects present themselves - relatives, competitors, the pole dancer from Racine WI. It was the job of Brady Wells, town Sheriff, to find the murderer. But Teddie St. John had a habit of getting involved in these investigations - and she would do it again.
Two secondary stories made the book stand out. First, was the underlying story of Teddie St. John’s breast cancer survival and the occasional discussion of her feelings and decisions related to those events. The cancer did not define her, but it did play a part in her daily life. Second, was the collection of not-so-healthy dessert recipes in the back of the book. I am looking forward to trying the “Everything But The Kitchen Sink Cookies (aka Sinkers)” using my favorite bag of trail mix.
Deadly Delights presents small town Wisconsin at its best and at its worst. Having lived in Southern Wisconsin, I recognized many of Lake Potawatomi’s inhabitants and surroundings. The book presented a fun recollection of my past. The final result is a nice, but not great, cozy mystery. I give Deadly Delights four stars.
