    One thought on “The 27-Ingredient Chili Con Carne Murders”

    1. This author is up and down There are some books I really like and others, such as this one, where I kept skipping over descriptions and fluff to get to the real story It was really a much shorter story, stretched to be a novel I wanted to get to the who dunnit part and she added less interesting details that did not add to the forward action of the book If there had been a sub plot it would have been better In the end, she didn t even answer the only very thin sub plot question about who were th [...]

    2. I rated this 4 because it was one of my Grandma s books that I took after she passed away It has her initials in it and the whole time I was reading it, I pictured her reading it Couldn t help but feel somehow connected to her.

    3. This story just moved at a snail s pace for me Instead of using the main character s first name, Mrs Potter was repetitiously used on every page and through the entire book Sadly, this all detracted from the mystery for me.

    4. Eugenia Potter loves food She loves to cook it, research it, and eat it She dreams of recipes, ponders recipes as she moves throughout her day, and puts her recipes into action every chance she gets Luckily Mrs Potter s second love is solving puzzles, because when her ranch foreman and his granddaughter go missing, she realizes that she may be their best chance at being found again It s a fun mystery All of the food talk is ok, though honestly I was interested in all the gossip about the townsf [...]

    5. I really enjoyed this I had read and liked Nancy Pickard s No Body , and I chose this e book based on my remembering that author I didn t realize until the end that she had been chosen to write this book based on the late Virginia Rich s notes I feel that Nancy did a wonderful job I m not familiar with Virginia Rich s work although I suspect I read The Cooking School Murders some years ago I really must re acquaint myself with it All I can say for sure is that I felt so connected with the charac [...]

    6. This was a pretty good cozy mystery It held my interest until the end, and the storyline was pretty good I read a review that said it seemed like a short story that had been expanded, and I can understand that comment There were long sections of description, and I sort of skipped over some of that I would read other books in this series.

    7. I discovered this author and her books quite by accident, scrolling through the listing of new books recently acquired at my local library I hadn t read a detective novel in quite a few years, and I was intrigued by the plot summary.I immediately fell in love with the main protagonist Eugenia Genia Potter and enjoyed spending time with her for the duration of the book Of course as soon as I finished reading The 27ingredient Chile Con Carne Murders, I couldn t wait to get back to the library to f [...]

    8. I m rounding this book up to 2 1 2 stars Meaning no disrespect to the author who wrote this book after the late author Virginia Rich, the main character, Mrs Potter, seemed older than her 60 yrs than an elderly woman To be fair, I ve never read any of the late author s other books but I m sure that all of her others were written this way too She has a first name, mentioned a few times but throughout the book, she s predominately referred to to Mrs which seems to be an elderly woman Even the wri [...]

    9. Somehow I can t take a book seriously when it includes a recipe for chili, enough to serve 20 people, which has only 2 4 tablespoons of chili powder and 2 garlic cloves Though otherwise the recipe wouldn t have been too bad, that s getting down to homeopathic levels of spicing.I read two of the first three in this series, which were written by the original author, and they weren t too bad I may search out the first, but I ll leave the ones by Pickard strictly alone Perhaps I wouldn t have minded [...]

    10. Quite a good book, actually I always liked the main character and this time she didn t really do much to figure out the answer to a series of grisly murders and the kidnapping of a family friend This shows her very intuitive nature She also has an apparent beau, which is charming for the storyline I did wish that the story could have stayed put in Maine but it turned out to be fun in the Southwest too I know that the author died while writing this book but you really can t tell where her writing [...]

    11. The fourth book in the Eugenia Potter series continued by Nancy Pickard with notes left by Virginia Rich I admit I haven t read the other books in the series and only picked this up because Nancy Pickard wrote it Eugenia Potter owns a ranch in Arizona She s at her house in Boston when her ranch manager Ricardo Ortega calls to urgently have her return to the ranch though he won t say why By the time she arrives in Arizona Ricardo and his granddaughter Linda have disappeared A decent cozy mystery [...]

    12. I first read this about 20 years ago, when it first came out Although I enjoyed it then, it is still a well written mystery with well rounded characters, a good sense of place, etc I like Eugenia Potter, but sometimes she reminds me of Mrs Pollifax not necessarily a bad thing, I suppose It was funny that a couple of plot points were based on the fact that the telephone service was of the party line variety I wonder if modern readers will know what that is Even in the novel it was remarked on as [...]

    13. A little slow going to start but not bad overall The atmosphere at the beginning of the book is a little maudlin as the main characters seems to keep agonizing over the friends and family she s lost and worrying about her increasing age Things pick up, ironically, as the body count rises and our amateur sleuth, Eugenia Potter, starts to focus on figuring it out Eugenia is also an amateur chef, and the book also includes a handful of featured recipes in the back, a couple of which I might actual [...]

    14. Nancy Pickard continues the Eugenia Potter mystery series begun by Virginia Rich in this book, the best of the series I ve read Set on Eugenia s Arizona ranch, the entire valley pulls together to find her missing ranch manager, Ricardo, and his granddaughter Linda As the bodies pile up, Eugenia sets out to discover what mysterious thing Ricardo had discovered, which set this chain of events in motion.

    15. This book was such fun I have to read about the charming Mrs Potter, her ranch, and her escapades Have already ordered an earlier book in the series.Highly recommended to those who love cozy mysteries, ranches, charming women of a certain age , and taking care of the villain without excessive violence.

    16. Given that the author wrote this based on notes by another beloved but sadly deceased author, I think this lady did a nice job writing it I enjoyed the view of ranch life in the southwest, and the plucky, older heroine.

    17. This book started out slow but quickly picked up speed, from then on it was hard to put down The added romance was a great touch and I hope to see of that in the next 2 books As far as the mystery goes I was truley surprised at the end a great book.

    18. This is the first Eugenia Potter mystery I read and It led me to the rest of the series and Nancy Pickard Virginia Rich I think this the best one of the series the main character is well drawn, the setting is interesting and the solution is not obvious.

    19. Not the best murder mystery I ve read, but I ll probably read the others in the series The recipes are entertaining how they re worked into the story I d like to try the chili recipe minus the mushrooms.

    20. Everything I said about the Blue Corn Murders is also true of this novel, but even better This is a page turner of a fun, light read If your troubles have you feeling down, this is a good choice for entertainment So much better than TV

    21. It did not piss me off to read this book but I really don t ever need to see it again I did predict the murderer but there were some fun plot twists Probably a good beach book but I read it in the mountains.

    22. It s been a while since I read this, but I remember it to be a good mystery It led me back to Virginia Rich Must say, I prefer Nancy Pickard s writing style.I do, however, love the chili recipe and the Albondigas soup recipe They are now family standards.

    23. Very good book Very good book I loved that this book kept me guessing A very well written book with lovable characters I will definitely be reading of these.

    24. Eugenia Potter, maker of the 27 ingredient chili, has to solve the mystery to clear her good name A pretty solid mystery.

    25. Fun, easy to read book with no huge surprises, but a few twists and turns enough to keep things interesting

    26. I had a hard time getting into this book It started moving about half way through I did like reading how the author stumbled into writing this story.
