Val Deniston is catering the debut of Bayport’s newest bookstore—but the death of a customer is about to draw her into a real-life murder mystery …
Suzette Cripps has been occupying a spare bedroom at Val’s granddad’s house while she takes classes in this Maryland Eastern Shore town—but she’s always seemed a little secretive and fearful, and any talk about her past is a closed book.
After winning the costume contest at the Halloween-themed bookstore party, Suzette is mowed down by a hit-and-run driver—and Val and her grandfather start to wonder whether it was really an accident or if someone was after Suzette. Granddad is a little distracted by his new enterprise as a ghost-buster, but as Val talks to Suzette’s coworkers and fellow creative writing students, she grows more convinced that the dead woman’s demons weren’t imaginary—and that she needs to rip the mask off a killer …
Includes delicious five-ingredient recipes!
My Review

This cozy mystery is addictive and a total page turner, with suspense, twists and turns, lots of funny scenes and even a bit of romance.
It is set during Halloween. Val and her grandfather Don have several cases to solve, the main one is the death of Suzette, a girl who rented a room from Val's grandfather. She was killed after winning a costume race. At first it seems to have been an accident  but Val discovers that she was afraid, maybe she had discovered something terrible that cost her her life.
The characters are believable and engaging. One of the things that I really loved about this book was Val's wonderful relationship with her grandfather, mine was like that and I miss him so much. Don is an adorable and very eccentric character with so many hats.
This is the sixth book in Maya Corrigan’s Five-Ingredient  Mysteries series and even though I haven't read the previous books, the author provided enough background information that I had no problem jumping right into it. It so well written and now I have to find time to go back to the beginning and read this series from the start.
I was once again pulled into a story that was so completely captivating I couldn't put it down. Well written, fast paced with vivid descriptions, engaging characters and a intriguing storyline. A valuable addition to this book are the included recipes
I have no hesitation in recommending it highly.
