My Thoughts: Holy Fritters and Meatballs! This book was a Feast of Laughs!

     This book is a hilarious Mystery RomCom that keeps you laughing and reading page after page. Now when you combine a whole lot of misunderstandings and a detective who swears in foods instead of expletives. A reader can be assured of one thing, you will laugh your asparagus off. 

      Imogene "Mo" Tuttle, works for Incredible Love, which is not an escort agency. Mo had higher dreams in life of being a chef, but life changed and she became a sleuth, who was instructed to stop cussing. Her solution, use her culinary background as her form of obscenities substitute. Mo's snarky and food mouthing attitude makes one man irritated yet very intrigued. His name is Stephen Dagger, aka Ross Grant, in real life, but he is only recognized by his once big role as the action hero from the past blockbuster hit. Ross wants to rid himself of Mo but she and him find themselves mixed up in a dangerous plot. Ross and Mo run from Russian mobsters, slimy reporters, ex-fiances, fans, clients and Hoochie Mama's House! 
      Overall, This is just one of those RomCom stories that you read and can't help but laugh the whole way through. Mo has to be one of my favorite heroines, because she's snarky and tough but totally a girl too. She's just too funny with her comebacks and sparring moments with Ross, "Thank you,' she said with a bright smile. 'That wasn't a compliment.' 'That's okay because I didn't mean it as a real thank you,' she responded. 'Sometimes thank you means something else entirely . . .but I'm too much of a lady to drop the f-bomb.' 'You're impossible,' he said. 'Thank you.'" Now if you didn't think that was funny, or you haven't said a thank you in place of an f*** you before, then perhaps this book will fly right over your head. However, if you are open to a good many laughs and are okay with two sex scenes, then give this book a try, the crazy characters will certainly brighten up your day, night or rainy day.
