Carly Hale is back in the fourth installment of the Grilled Cheese Mysteries in Brie Careful What You Wish For, where Ross Baxter, who has a food delivery business to earn money for college, delivers to a woman who is generally hateful and difficult. He finds her body in her kitchen, and evidence points to murder. Many of the small town residents, including the Balsam Dell police are convinced that this young man is the murderer, even though those who know him are sure he isn’t guilty. Because Carly knows Ross isn’t guilty, she puts her sleuthing hat on, against the wishes of the police and investigates. Carly uncovers enough clues to be sure that the list of suspects becomes longer and longer, and Carly, as usual, puts herself in danger.

This cute cozy is a fast read. The story flows well and the suspense slowly builds. Reilly does a good job of developing the characters, and for those who haven’t read the previous books, gives readers enough information that they can relate to them and come to know them. They are quite believable, and most are likeable. One of the nice things about the novel is that Reilly makes reference to several mouthwatering grilled cheese-type sandwiches. There are clever plays on cheese words, too, including Carly’s beloved dog, Havarti.

All told, this is a cute cozy and it includes a couple of recipes for grilled cheese sandwiches at the end. This is fun, and is suitable for readers of all ages.

Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this book.
