BODY AND SOUL FOOD by Abby Collette is my first book by this author. I was intrigued by the concept of combining soul food and a bookstore. Books & Biscuits is a lovely place that I think people would enjoy reading about. Because the setting and main characters are so delightful, this book will appeal to readers who may not normally be mystery fans.


While I enjoyed the fraternal twins, Keaton and Koby, I hope to get more background info and more twin banter in future books. Since this is only the first book in the series, there’s still plenty of time to learn more about them. Because this is a first book in a series, the author teases the reader with things that will probably be expanded on in future stories.


This first installment has whetted my appetite, and made me curious to see how the rest of this new series will pan out. Since I’m such a sucker for foodie mysteries and books, I know I’ll be coming back for seconds.

In this page-turning new mystery series, fraternal twins Keaton and Koby will pull double duty when they take down a killer while preparing to open their new bookstore and soul-food café, Books & Biscuits.

When Koby Hill and Keaton Rutledge were orphaned at age two, they were separated, but their unbreakable connection lingered. Year later, they reunite and decide to make up for lost time and capitalize on their shared interests by opening up a well-stocked bookstore and cozy soul-food café in the quaint Pacific Northwest town of Timber Lake. But this new chapter of their lives could end on a cliffhanger after Koby's foster brother is found murdered.

The murder, which occurred in public between light-rail stops, seems impossible for the police to solve. But as Keaton and Koby know, two heads are always better than one, especially when it comes to mysteries. With just a week to go before the grand opening of their new café, the twins will use their revitalized connection with each other to make sure this is the killer's final page.
