Four Cuts Too Many is the fourth installment in the Sarah Blair Mystery series by Debra H. Goldstein. This is a fun, light series for cozy lovers of all ages. In this case, Sarah, who is part owner in her sister’s restaurant, meets with Grace Winston, an employee who is an adjunct professor teaching a knife skills class at the community college, to discuss a problem Grace is having. Unfortunately, a professor is found dead with one of Grace’s knives and plenty of other evidence. Sarah must scramble to prove Grace innocent, and puts herself and others in danger.

Those who have read the previous books in this series know that Goldstein has done an excellent job of developing her characters and making them seem real. Granted, these aren’t serious characters, but their personalities align with people in most reader’s lives that they know personally.

Since these books are culinary mysteries, in the cozy genre, there is no graphic language, sex, or violence. They are fast reads, and there is enough suspense to keep readers on the edge. There is enough happening that readers won’t be sure if Grace is really guilty, and there isn’t enough information (by design) for most won’t be able to figure out who the culprit really is. Readers won’t actually find out until the dénouement which comes at the very end of the novel.

This is a fun series, and this is a well-written novel that will definitely keep the interest of cozy lovers. There are also recipes, which is a necessary element of a good cozy.
