Cute Delicious Murders
I was at the bookstore last night [because what else would a young fun gal be doing on a Saturday night] and I ended up spending most of my time in a section of the mystery aisle. These weren't regular mysteries I was perusing, no. These were the cute delicious ones.
There is an entire sub-genre of mystery centered around food — cute food, I should add. My local Barnes and Noble organized all these cute delicious murder stories into one section. And when you see them all together... it's overwhelming. There are so many. It really is a genre of its own, complete with aesthetic requirements: a cozy cover with bright colors and lovely food, an ominous but adorable tagline, and often a small dog or cat.
And the puns. OHHHHH the puns. These puns put the rest of us to shame.
Not be be confused with...
Though baked goods seem to lead this genre, it's not all about dessert! There's plenty of room for savory food, too.
I didn't buy any of these books. They're not my cup of tea. But I enjoy the fact that they exist and applaud the authors who write them.
