Green chile has never been more dangerous.
 Psychologist Maddie Swallows’ decision to return to New Mexico seemed like a good idea at the time, considering the divorce and her two teenagers she’d dragged along for the ride.

Of course, with the help of two precocious teenagers and one meddling mother, the real murderer doesn’t stand a chance.

Dead before dinner. I liked the way the characters interacted in this story. The mystery of who did the murders had me guessing until the end. I’d recommend this book to everyone that likes reading cozy mysteries.


Charming story. Dead Before Dinner by Kat Bellemore is a throughly charming cozy story. The characters are are interesting and entertaining. There are twists and turns after the murder and some surprises during the investigation. Maddie’s family involvement adds to the depth and richness to the story. I throughly enjoyed reading this book and highly it’s entertaining. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.


Dead before dinner. Good story, lots of things going on to keep your interest but easy to follow. Thought it had a good ending.


A fun read!. Maddie Swallows has moved back to her home town with her two teenagers after her divorce. Things have changed a lot in 20 years and before she knows it she’s in the midst of looking into a murder or two. I look forward to reading what Maddie will be up to next!. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.


Great start to a series!. Once the introduction and rising action were established, the book really picked up and was more suspenseful as it progressed. The author does a great job telling the story and once all the facts are laid out, its apparent what has to happen! Can’t wait to read the next books in this series.


Dead Before Dinner. When Maddie Swallows moves back to her hometown, she just wants to get her psychiatrist practice started with her best friend Trish and distance herself from her ex husband. At the same time, she basically goes into seclusion to avoid old friends and new questions. Then Trish accepts an invite to a dinner party on her behalf and all other interests fade into the background when one of the guests eats something that disagrees with them. After meeting the new sheriff, Maddie decides to help out by using her psychiatrist skills to interview suspects. Her children and mother offer their assistance to the amateur sleuth. But are they putting themselves in danger? Will the murders stop at one body? Or does their agenda require more? The story was kind of amusing though it felt like the sheriff would have responded differently to the ongoing interference. It also felt like someone would have commented on one of the last minute details about the attendees much sooner.


Great 👍 book. The book was fabulous couldn’t put it down. You will enjoy it immensely.
