Of Mushrooms and Matrimony

Severn House. (Tish Tarragon, Bk. 6). Jan. 2023. 220p. ISBN 9781448306541. $29.99. M
Tish Tarragon is already in trouble before she even caters a wedding weekend at a local B&B. Her ex-boyfriend, who is also her landlord, has evicted her. She is homeless and without her café as her base. At least she’s working out of Abbingdon Green, where the wedding party is staying, for the weekend. She and her new love interest, Sheriff Clemson Reade, are on site when TV chef Gunnar Randall verbally attacks the B&B’s owner. Glory Bishop is scared that the powerful celebrity, known for his scathing reviews, will destroy her business. But within two days, Gunnar is dead. He’s been poisoned, the victim of a deadly mushroom, which could have been served by a half-dozen chefs in the area, all with reasons to hate the obnoxious chef. As a consultant for the sheriff’s department, Tish sits in on the interviews with subjects and learns how hated Gunnar was in the foodie world.
VERDICT Those who read Krista Davis’s “Domestic Diva” mysteries for the close-knit cast will enjoy the supportive group of friends in Meade’s charming follow-up to From Ladle to Grave.
