9780070062757: Who Killed Olive Souffle?

Detective Angel Cardoni heads out for a relaxing weekend in the mountains but an accident leads her to a snowbound inn where chef Olive Souffle is murdered. With a killer on the loose, Cardoni had better work fast with the only crime-solving tools available--items commonly found in a kitchen.

From the Back Cover:

Cook up a crime-stopping recipe with hardboiled Detective Angel Cardoni! Stranded in a snowstorm, Detective Angel Cardoni finds shelter in a country inn and restaurant, not yet open for the ski season. Cardoni and her dog Miro are just settling in when a scream pierces the air-and Olive Souffle, the inn's French chef, is found dead on the gritty floor of the walk-in freezer. Who flattened Souffle? Was it Walter, the lodge manager? Employees Patty Bordeaux, Norm Adams, Sam Burnie? Or Caesar, the commanding sous-chef? You, the reader, and Detective Cardoni must set to work finding out whodunit, with the only forensic tools available: the inn's kitchen supplies!

From Kirkus Reviews:

As this entry in the Crime Files series opens, homicide detective Angel Cardoni (who seems to be in her mid-20s) is driving through a blizzard with her faithful dog, Miro. She swerves to avoid a deer in the road and ends up with her car nearly buried in a huge snowbank. Luckily, a nearby country inn is two days from opening for ski season, and Angel and Miro take refuge there at the invitation of the inn's award-winning French chef, Olive Souffl‚. Angel's exhausted sleep is interrupted by the sound of screams; an employee and a delivery man have just found Olive's body on the floor of a walk-in freezer, surrounded by heads of cabbage. Although there's a dearth of evidence--no murder weapon, little blood, no hint of a struggle--and the medical examiner can't get there until the roads have been cleared, Angel resolves to find the killer. She does, in spite of numerous red herrings thrown in her path, and with enough brio to satisfy readers who figure out the mystery first; as Angel pursues her investigation with an ad hoc laboratory made up entirely of kitchen equipment, a variety of simple science lessons become clear. Despite the ages of the players (all adults, some middle-aged) and simplistic plotting, there is plenty to involve readers who like their mysteries fairly straightforward and refreshingly gore-free.
