It’s always fun to find an author with her own twist on the genres I love. In this case, I’m talking specifically about Battered, the first Whipped and Sipped mystery from G. P. Gottlieb. It’s a culinary cozy, but the main character runs a shop that serves healthy treats.
Galit Gottlieb’s “culinary mystery” Battered: A Whipped and Sipped Mystery is part of the library’s Local Collection, a space on the second floor next to the Reference desk.
