"Recipe for Murder" by Lisa Harris

My personal Rating-
This was a little “cozy mystery” that had a murder (however, it’s not a suspense murder book), but there was a bit of a sweet romance/matchmaking and quite a bit of Spiritual Content for such a small book!

See y’all on Monday with a new review!
