Managing a fitness club cafĂ© and collaborating on a cookbook with her grandfather are Val Deniston’s usual specialties, but she’s about to set sail into nearby Chesapeake Bay—straight into a murder case . . .

Since catering themed events is a good way to make extra cash, Val agrees to board the Titanic—or at least cater a re-creation of the doomed journey on a yacht. The owner of the yacht, who collects memorabilia related to the disaster, wants Val to serve the last meal the Titanic passengers ate . . . while his guests play a murder-mystery game. But it is the final feast for one passenger who disappears from the ship. And that’s only the tip of the iceberg.

Now Val has to reel in a killer before s’more murders go down . . .

Includes delicious five-ingredient recipes!

Review: S'more Murders by Maya Corrigan
(A Five-Ingredient Mystery #5)

This engrossing Chesapeake Bay area cozy mystery contains more twists than a knotted-up python! The plot surely kept me guessing. Val Deniston operates a fitness cafe and caters for extra funds, so a request to cater a replica of the Titanic' s final Captain's Table dinner seems tasteless, but she and her grandfather need house repairs, soon. So better judgment aside, Val, Grandpa, and best friend Bethany cater the dinner, on a wealthy attorney's yacht, and he insists guests participate in a Titanic-themed murder mystery role-playing game. The object seems to be an opportunity for attorney Otto to reveal denigrating information about the guests; but then Otto disappears from the yacht. Not a dull moment is there, as everybody is suspect, then Val is endangered, and other dangers threaten. Val and Grandpa diligently research backgrounds of suspects and victims, and discover a manipulative killer hiding in plain sight.


  1. Hi Mallory,
    Thank you for featuring my book on your blog. I appreciate the time it took to read and review it. An I'm glad you enjoyed the book.

  2. What a great concept! I've read prior books in the series, and I adore the sweet relationship between Val and her grandfather. He really makes the series! The Titanic theme sounds great--I loved Maya Corrigan's earlier Poe-themed installment in the series, and this sounds just as intriguing.
