Hi, Ginnmi, I can't speak for everyone, but I do like the "food/drink" mysteries - along with others. I like Sue Grafton, I like Sara Peretsky (which I probably spelled wrong!) and others. I tried to read one Nevada Barr book because it was set in Michigan, but I didn't like it so I didn't finish. Right now, I'm reading "Death by Darjeeling" by Laura Childs but I have a few books waiting for me and not all are mysteries. Do you *not* like the food/drink mysteries?
