The third novel in the Sarah Blair Mystery Series, Three Treats Too Many, by Debra H Goldstein starts when Sarah’s ex-husband’s old lover, Jane, opens a new restaurant across the street from the carriage house and Marcus and Emily’s new restaurant where Sarah is part owner. Because of a hold-up on a city building inspection, isn’t ready to open. Jane is holding several pre-opening tastings, and everyone is raving over the vegan dishes put out by Jane’s chef, Riley. Unfortunately, Riley is found murdered in the parking lot, with Sarah’s good friend Jacob kneeling over her, and he is the prime suspect. Sarah must use her best sleuthing skills to find the real murderer, since she knows Jacob didn’t do it. Much of the plot in this novel is based on a motorcycle group that most of the suspects were involved with.

Goldstein is a great storyteller, and the cozy novels in this series are really fun to read. The characters are well-developed, and Rah-Rah and Fluffy (Sarah’s cat and dog) add much to the fun. No cozy novel is complete without pets, and these pets play a big role. The main characters are the same in all of the novels, so readers will be familiar with them. Most are likeable, although the ones, like Jane, are unlikeable, but necessary. Food lovers will enjoy the food references, and everyone will enjoy the recipes at the end of the novel.

Anyone looking for a fun series, and a good cozy with good recipes, should pick up this book as well as the previous novels.
