Book Review: Chicken Caccia-Killer by Liz Lipperman

Updated on January 24, 2022

Every January I painstakingly go through past reviews of series authors to see if they’ve added a new installment to the series. It takes awhile to check and sometimes they sneak one in.

About two years ago I discovered there was another installment in this series and it was a tough one to find.

Because it’s been awhile since I had read the last installment, the series revolves around journalist Jordan McAllister, a would be sports reporter, who finds herself writing the personals and writing the Kitchen Kupboard culinary column. Of course Jordan is clueless when it comes to cooking.

In this installment, her column is on the line when original columnist Loretta Moseley pops up out of nowhere and wants her old job back.

Even though Jordan is clueless about what goes on in the kitchen, she’s willing to fight for the column and the “write off “ begins later that evening when both are covering a VIP party for the upcoming International Italian Festival.

Her boyfriends sister, Kate, is one of the organizers and gives her extra passes to the party, so the residents of the Empire Apartments accompany her.

While at the party, playboy Marco Petrone falls over the balcony to his death after a fight with Kate.

Kate becomes the prime suspect following his death since she didn’t know that he was engaged to Tina Calabrese. The love triangle gets a little deeper as well.

In order to clear Kate’s name, Jordan also finds out information regarding her boyfriends mother, Natalie and doesn’t know if she should share the information, or have Natalie tell the kids herself.

While there is a good suspect list, the clues weren’t that obvious, I did figure it out a page or two before the identity was revealed.

In order to really enjoy the series, it’s best to start from the beginning (although Lipperman did bring back some past events, which helped jog my mind a little).

I had also forgotten that the past installments included recipes and after the story some great recipes are included.

A fifth installment is in the works (per her website) but a date has not been given as of this review.
