Description

5.0 out of 5 stars. A main course Cozy mystery with some Sausalito dishing on the side! FUN!  —Deborah Coonts, author of The Lucky O'Toole Series

A totally fun inside look at life in small-town Sausalito, CA–all wrapped in a cozy mystery! I loved the setting–the characters pop off the page. The writing paints wonderful word pictures, bringing me right into the story. If you love small-town mysteries in the style of a parlor mystery ala Agatha Christie, this one's for you!

5.0 out of 5 stars. Small town life can be deadly. —Charles A. Ray, VINE VOICE

The Gossiping Gourmet by Martin Brown is an intriguing mystery that peels the flesh off a dried up social system; the kind that exists in most small towns, and gets to the guts of what makes little towns tick. The characters, even good old Warren Bradley, will be with you long after you stop reading, and if you’re one of those people who has contemplated shucking the big city for small town life after retirement, you might just rethink it. Witty dialogue and detailed (without being overbearing) descriptions pull you in like a high-powered Hoover, and the ending will sucker punch you.

5.0 out of 5 stars. Terrific!! —ZL

This book was fantastic! The characters were well developed, the plot was surprising and the twists and turns were definitely not expected. Can’t wait to read more of Brown’s books!

5.0 out of 5 stars. Terrific Mystery from Martin Brown. —GrizzlyWife

I lived in San Francisco's Bay Area for about 7 years and I am familiar with Sausalito, CA. Mr. Brown does a great job setting up the culture and dynamics of this town. It may slow down the mystery a little but I enjoyed getting to know the various characters involved before the murder and mystery begin. Mr. Brown did a great job in the mystery's twists and turns while staying true to his characters. I highly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars. Spicy Story. —Susan Carroll

Excellent descriptions of a beautiful part of this country. I loved his characters, and almost felt like I knew them. I didn't put this book down until I finished it.
It was easy to read and very enjoyable. I will get his next book.
