Debra Goldstein's One Taste Too Many introduces Sarah Blair whose life has gone through many changes. She is recently divorced, culinary challenged, and lives in a studio apartment with a Siamese cat named RahRah. She has a new job as a law firm receptionist.

Sarah is barely used to being single when her world is turned upside down once again. Her ex-husband is murdered, and her twin sister Emily is the prime suspect. Emily is a trained chef and the police believe that the murdered man had eaten one of her signature dishes, containing an ingredient to which he was highly allergic.

To make matters worse, Sarah is suspected as well, and she might lose RahRah to someone she can't abide. She fights tooth and nail to retain custody of RahRah. I liked Sarah. She has gumption and is not going to let life get her down. The plot works. And I appreciated the insertion of RahRah the cat. The author has a nice sense of humor.

One Taste Too Many is the first in this new series from Debra Goldstein. It's a delightful cozy, with some interesting recipes on the back pages.
