Hope Early is constantly working on her blog, Hope at Home, and presently is also doing a feature for a popular food magazine. She’s also active in her small community, and is participating in the annual scavenger hunt with a group of friends. The problem is that Hope discovers a dead body – something not on the scavenger hunt list – and it belongs to a disreputable realtor and developer, Lionel Whitcomb, and when his wife sees the body, she is pretty upset. Not as upset however, as when she finds out that her husband never properly divorced his ex-wives, and they all show up as possible heirs. Lionel’s present wife, Elaine, asks Hope to look into the murder, since Hope has also done some amateur sleuthing, and while investigating, Hope just may lose her life. Three Widows and a Corpse is the third installment of the Food Blogger Mysteries by Debra Sennefelder, and not only does it have all the elements of a good cozy mystery, it also contains plenty of food references and recipes at the end.

Readers who haven’t read the previous mysteries in the series will find that Sennefelder has done a good job of developing her characters and rehearsing enough of what happened before that the novel makes sense and doesn’t leave anyone in the dark. The characters not only seem real, but also seem to belong in the small town. There is plenty of suspense, which builds throughout, as well as a surprise dénouement.

The Food Blogger Mysteries are fun, fast reads, and contain no graphic violence, sex, or language. This is one for all ages.
