… for the debut of the Cape Cod Foodie!

This is one of the freshest, funniest murder mysteries I’ve ever read.

A Side of Murder is a rich, satisfying meal that delights from beginning to end, and Amy Pershing is a wonderful and clever author.” Elizabeth Gilbert, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Eat Pray Love and City of Girls

“LOVED it!! I literally walked around trying to clean my house with the book in my hand! I couldn’t put it down!Deborah Crombie, author of the award-winning Duncan Kincaid/ Gemma James novels.

“A delicious mystery lovingly set in Cape Cod featuring a cast of charming characters. Amy Pershing writes with a fresh fun voice that will delight cozy fans. Chef turned restaurant critic Samantha Barnes proves a clever sleuth whose helpful cooking tips will be a big hit with culinary readers.” Krista Davis, New York Times bestselling author of the DOMESTIC DIVA mysteries

An exquisite Cape Cod setting, a shamed but resilient chef, murderous secrets, and a long-buried but still steaming romance… Amy Pershing’s debut mystery will leave you longing for a seaside vacation, complete with fried clams and the next book in her charming series.Lucy Burdette, national bestselling author of THE KEY LIME CRIME
