Mystery Writer’s Foodie Book Review is Divine

You never know where a review of your book might show up. Here’s one in Kings River Life Magazine of five “foodie mysteries” that includes Wisconsin author  Christine DeSmet’s Five-Alarm Fudge, published by Penguin.

The review, by Cynthia Chow, opens with, “Few can doubt the appeal of divinity candy, but who would have thought it was actually divine? Local lore in Door County, Wisconsin has it that in the 1860s Sister Adele Brise created a foolproof recipe for divinity, one that she shared along with her vision of the Blessed Mother of God. The recent discovery of an antique cup has linked the Oosterling family to royals in Belgium, so this–and the rumored recipe–has Belgian prince Arnaud Van Damme and his mother Princess Amandine planning a visit to their American sister city of Namur. In order to promote both Namur, Wisconsin and Namur, Belgium, the prince hopes to exhibit the priceless recipe and attract countless tourists to both cities. Now all Ava Oosterling has to do is find the recipe!”

Five-Alarm Fudge is part of Christine’s The  Fudge Shop Mystery Series, set in Door County. Congratulations to Chris for the publication of this book  and the great review.
