This book was not only offensive with racial and sexual stereotypes, but the heroine was insipid and annoying. I don't know what kind of impression Nancy Fairbanks was trying to make with Carolyn Blue. After two books with this character, I can't say that I like her. The husband, Jason Blue, had his own turn at solving a murder mystery in this book. Unfortunately, it became hard to distinguish his voice from his wife's. That was disappointing because I like reading plots that are told from two different points of view.

The plot was ridiculous and hard to believe. The ending was an insult to the reader. It seemed as if the author threw a basketful of ideas in the sky and grabbed a random idea to end the book. The conclusion was so unbelieveable and silly that I felt cheated.

I am an avid reader of "foody" mysteries, so I know what to expect. It seems as if the author tried too hard to include food and recipes in this novel. Many of the foods she described did not sound appetising. Ususally a "foody" mystery would encourage me to try a recipe, cook, or eat. This book didn't.

I give this book 2 stars because it had some potential. If you're interested in reading this book, I would suggest borrowing it.

Budding food columnist (amateur sleuth) Carolyn Blue finds herself knee deep in another murder mystery -- this time in New York City. And while "Truffled Feathers" is not as quirky as "Crime Brulee," this second Carolyn Blue murder mystery is as interesting and as engrossing as the first.
The Blues have come to New York on business: Jason is being recruited by Hodge, Brune and Byerson for a consultancy gig, while Carolyn has an appointment to meet her agent (face-to-face) for the first time. And while Jason is looking forward to his interview, Carolyn is girding herself to let her agent know that she has no desire to write the book on New Orleans culinary delights, esp because of the traumatic memories attached to that trip. However minutes after landing in the city, they learn that the head of research and development who had been responsible fore recruiting Jason, Max Heydemann, had keeled over and died over a pastrami sandwich. (Actually he was murdered in a manner that suggests a professional hit.) The Blues are shaken, and things at Hodge, Brune & Byerson seem to be especially tense. Gossip reveals that while Max was well liked by nearly everyone, he was hated by his ex-wife and children. And then Jason discovers that there have been some rather shady goings-on at H, B & B, that Max was investigating. Could that have been the reason why Max was murdered? Jason leans towards that theory, and determined to keep Carolyn from getting herself entangled in another murder mystery, he starts poking around H, B & B hoping to unmask a killer. In the meantime, Carolyn is lunching with the wives of H, B & B and picking up all kinds of gossip that leads her to suspect Max's neurotic ex-wife and his poisonous children of having offed him. Who is right: Jason or Carolyn? Both the Blues are determined to get to the bottom of this perplexing mystery.
While "Truffled Feathers" did not have quite the same wry tone that "Crime Brulee" did, it was still an entertaining read. I think that Nancy Fairbanks did a rather good job at capturing the tone and essence of New York City; I also liked the manner in which she portrayed the different scientists at H, B & B, as well as those she ran into in the publishing world. And for a mystery novel that was divided into two different narratives -- since both Carolyn and Jason were independently investigating Max's murder, but from different angles -- the book unfolded smoothly and flawlessly.
"Truffled Feathers" is a fun read: Fairbanks has peopled this mystery novel with enough eccentric and shady characters and red herring plots that should keep any avid mystery readers happily guessing for a couple of hours. I liked her first novel, and her second one has proved to be as good. This series is shaping up to be a rather drool and fun one, and one that is worth recommending.

Scientist Jason Blue specializes in how to clean toxins from the environment while his wife Carolyn is a gourmet chef. Carolyn receives an advance to write a cookbook on New Orleans cuisine. They travel to New York because Hodge, Bruce & Byerson want to hire Jason to help them with their "Cleaning the Environment Through Chemistry" mission while Carolyn meets with her editor.

Upon their arrival in the Big Apple, they learn that someone murdered the person who recruited Jason. Without informing one another, Jason and Carolyn independently investigate the homicide. Though approaching the puzzle differently, each of them draws the same conclusions about the perpetrators.

This reviewer provides two tips before reading this complex mystery. First fill up with a big meal before starting because the descriptions of food are salivating and torturous. Second ignore why two amateurs would investigate a killing especially since they are at best remotely impacted. Nancy Fairbanks writes a delicious, often amusing amateur sleuth story that will satiate the sub-genre's gourmands.

After being slightly disheartened at what might have been a cute whodunnit in Creme Brulee, I decided to give Caroline Blue (main character) another chance. Now after two books I feel that the mystery part of the story is good: There are a number of clues and twists and turns to keep you guessing right until the end. However, like Creme Brulee, I felt that the wrap up was very Matlock-ish/Scooby Doo and the gang "I would've gotten away with it too if it weren't for those meddling kids"-ish. The story itself was rather wordy and I found myself wondering how my high school English teacher would've edited the manuscript. I do realize that the book is a bit dated and that might account for some of my issues with it, but I think I'll stop reading the series with this book and move onto something new.
