Death Fricassee (Recipe for Death) by Tawdra Kandle

Pour some wine, put up your feet and spend some time in Palm Dunes . . . where people aren't always as they appear.

From USA Today bestselling author Tawdra Kandle comes the second book in this paramystery series with a touch of humor. If you enjoy the Stephanie Plum books, you'll fall in love with Jackie, Lucas and the quirky Florida retirement community where they live as the only non-senior residents--and the only ones with otherworldly connections.

Want a recipe for disaster? Take one thirty-something food columnist, living the high life as the youngest resident of a Florida retirement community in the house she inherited from her grandmother. Sprinkle with early-bird specials and nights of bingo.

Add one college professor-turned-novelist, seasoned heavily with deep, dark secrets sprung from a night of drunken fun that left him changed in ways he doesn't understand.

Toss in a dash of murder that rocks a quiet community.

And heat until neither one can deny their growing attraction to each other.

Best served hot with a side of wicked humor and a glass of Pinot Grigio.

Bon Appetit!

Save Tomorrow is a series of paranormal romances that begins in the small town of King, Florida, winds through the Serendipity and Recipe for Death books, and finally culminates in Age of Aquarius, the inevitable showdown that ties all the characters together in a fight to stop the ultimate evil.

Death Fricassee is a great start to the Recipe for Death series.


I love how Kandle has placed Jackie in a retirement community, surrounded her with elderly people and she still manages to meet someone she can relate to. Her new neighbor Lucas is a hot vampire type of guy but there is so much more to it than just that. Lucas isn’t your stereotypical vampire; he is also a “Death Dealer”, which makes this book that much better. I also really love her kooky nosy neighbor, Mrs. Mac. The characters are all fun and entertaining; the mystery is as it should be, intriguing. She gives the readers just enough to make them keep asking questions and speculating what is actually going on.


Overall, I loved this book. I can’t wait for the rest of the series and to find out all of the secrets! The tone of this book is fairly lighthearted even with the dark undertones. I recommend it to anyone looking for a good mystery with slight paranormal activity.
