    One thought on “Pasta Pinot & Murder”

    1. 3.5 star rating.A cozy mystery and recipes. Meet Willa Friday, food blogger and food photographer, which requires styling food for the photographs. I found the topic interesting, especially when they use "fake" food and drink to look real for a photo and what they use to do it. No wonder, I thought, my husband always asks me when he sees commercials for food"why doesn't it look like that when you actually get one in your hand?" Well, it's cause there are professionals who arrange food or fake fo [...]

    2. HmmmWhat I liked The priceThe setting -Sonoma Valley is gorgeous country!The lengthWhat I hope gets improved for the next bookMore character developmentLess of a story rush - the length pushed the story to conclude without letting the characters become real and plot really unfold

    3. A very quick, easy read. I find it hard to identify with a woman who makes her living photographing fake food and policemen who are happy to discuss a murder investigation with nosy locals. The narrative trips happily along but this is a world whose values I reject.

    4. It's written like the 6th book in a series not the first. You have no description of the characters and no emotional connection to them. There was no mystery I had it figured out from the time the murderer was introduced. However there are some tasty recipes at the back and it's a really easy read. Great for a camping trip or bath tub relax.

    6. Tedious writing. Every little thing was described in more detail than necessary. She washed her hands and then she dried them. No! Really? You didn't leave them wet? Wow. She made a cup of coffee for like the third or fourth time and still described it step by step. Even though how she took the coffee was exactly the same. Then Willa carried her mug of coffee by the handle. Who cares? It doesn't move the story forward. It doesn't connect the reader to the character. It's just wasted words.Willa [...]

    7. Willa Friday runs a food blog, lives with her ex-husband, and rents her home and office space from her ex-mother in law, who owns the land and vineyard that she lives on. Their daughter, her assistant is starting college so she has hired a new one who is a professionally trained chef. She tends to have a catty attitude toward others who like to flaunt their wealth and believe they are better than others.Dreading a meeting with Alice Parker to get the basics for a poster for a planned event.

    8. Jamie Lee Scott's foray into a milder genre has exactly the result one would expect of her work! Pasta Pinot & Murder is excellent! A strong and interesting main character is supported by intriguing secondary characters and I am dying to spend more time with all of them. I love that the victim was not generally likeable but that there were still people who were touched by her death; life is not all black and white, and books that reflect the grays usually have more depth.The plot worked. Twi [...]

    9. All my favourite things, Food, Wine and Murder.A great first in a new series for Jamie Lee Scott and I have to say I loved it, the characters were engaging, the storyline was interesting the setting was gorgeously described throughout the book and I love that the author combine food wine and murder together but not just a winery and restaurant, Willa being a food stylist and blogger adds a refreshingly new element to the story.Impressive mystery

    10. BAM!!!This is a page turning, sizzling new series. Willa is well developed, loveable and quirky enough to draw the reader in and keep them coming back for more. I loved the whole concept and can't wait to see what comes next along with delicious recipe ideas that the whole family will enjoy. Fellow readers grab your fork and spoon and get ready to indulge yourself in a delectable new series with the Friday's.

    11. Willa is a food blogger and stylist who lives at her in-law's vineyard. Stumbling over a body at a neighboring vineyard becomes a serious distraction. I really enjoyed the setting and learning about food styling. There were a good number of suspects and red herrings though not the most complex of mysteries. Hattie, the mother in law, was a great character. Willa's character became less likable as the story progressed. She seemed very entitled.

    12. A lovely mix of an intriguing profession and mysteryPasta Pinot & Murder checks all the boxes for a great cozy. Intrepid heroine. Interesting, somewhat unavailable love interest. Cast of interesting characters, including beautiful best friend and feisty seniors. Lots of lovely food. Law enforcement good, but not good enough.There is an issue of wanton crime scene contamination, but we can overlook that, right?

    13. Whether I like a mystery series or not depends on the main character. While this novel is well-written and I know many people will like it, I did not find the main character to my liking. I did not connect with Willa Friday, a writer and owner of a food blog. The novel is set in wine country in California. Willa lives in a house with her ex-husband who owns and operates a restaurant. His mother owns the property and a winery.

    14. A new food/mystery series. Willa Friday is a food stylist and food blogger who lives with her ex-husband and on the vineyard/restaurant/bed and breakfast owned by her ex-husband's family. All a little too close, but adds lots of opportunities for future murders. Willa goes to an appointment and finds a dead body. There are lots of potential suspects and lots of food and wine. Quick and easy read with fun people.

    15. Willa and Peter have a unique living arrangement and unique relatiship!I enjoyed this short book, fun read but are there really people like Willa, Peter and Hattie? Perhaps yes, perhaps no, but the author made made me wonder about it. Read it you will enjoy it be introduced to some interesting recipes. The cucumber avocado sandwich with pomegranate dressing sounds good enough to try.

    16. This is the first in the series and I can't wait for more. The main character is Willa, who marries into a very rich winery owning family. Though she is no longer married, she is still involved in many parts of the running of it all. She goes over to see the owner of the neighboring winery and finds her body. She finds herself involved in find out who done it. It almost gets her killed. Look forward to the next one.

    17. I'd give a 0 if I could. I'm a therapist and always look for and believe in strength however this was the worst writing I've ever read. I have a personal issue with not leaving things unresolved thus I forced myself to finish the bookever I wanted to throw it away the whole time. I painfully finished via forcing reading during commercials. No wonder why it was free on Bookbub. I'm sorry Ms. Scott!

    18. A quick read which means not a lot of character or plot development. I did like that most of the main characters are likable though, even with their foibles. I found the food styling and photography aspect especially interesting since I do a lot of food photography for recipe reviews and blogging. The recipes included at the end also sounded really good.

    19. This story wasn't anything to right home about. I won't be continuing the series. There were many points where it didn't make since how Willa was getting the answers she wanted. Why people were opening up to her. A lot of the wrap up didn't see logical. Willas personal life, and life story was well laid out, and fun.

    20. Light and enjoyable murder mistery novel, Pasta Pinot & Murder earned 4 stars from me for the writing style and the food recipes in the end. The combination between food blogging and murder investigation is nice, and the title is catchy. The story is not that amazing, but not too predictable either. Overall, an enjoyable way to spend 3 hours, and easy to read in one go.

    21. I really liked the mystery, as well as the addition of the recipes, but the tediousness of each action paired with Willa’s insistence on keeping her college-aged daughter in the dark about death/murder AND Willa’s ridiculous feelings for the ex-husband who *cheated on her* Willa is not my favorite character. Frankly, she’d be better off with that interesting new assistant of hers

    22. I was really interested in Willa's job as a food stylist and how she goes about her job. The rest of the book, not so much. Willa was way too nosy (in an annoying way), it was unnatural how everyone would just open up to her and tell her things, and there was no character development. I won't be reading the rest of the series.

    23. A short novel of murder in the world of wine growing and restaurants (a strange combination?). The plot was, by the nature of the size of the book, not very detailed and the characters somewhat of a cliche for the genre.As a short read its okay hardly taxing on the brain and don't expect Agatha Christie-like plot twists because you'll be disappointed. I certainly was

    24. Good readI enjoyed this book and is the first one I've read from this author. Good character building. Enjoyed the interactions with the characters in the story. Really wanted to leave for Sonoma for some great food and wine. Look forward to seeing what Willa and her friends get involved in next.

    25. It was a good, fast paced book.This book was well written with the first person point of view perspective. Characters were well written while plot was mild. Clues were shuttle and while clues didn' t give ending away, they led the unsuspecting reader to the perfect ending.Recipes were a nice addition at the end of book.

    26. MediocreThis is definitely a cozy mystery . Very bland and boring . The author actually had the writing here several times about washing your hands and using a paper towel . The discussion of what they were doing was so very boring and basic you had to skip the pages just to get through it. Seems like it was written by an 11 grader

    27. I over rated it because it was an inoffensive, frothy read with very few errors. Someone must have actually read it rather than relying on spellcheck. The characters are paper dolls, not well developed and the fact it's a 2 hour read should explain the sparse plot.
