The Cormoran Strike novels have so many of the elements I love in mysteries. The main characters are flawed but winning, there is a fiendish puzzle at the heart of each book, and there are equal helpings of darkness and snort-inducing humour. On top of that, the series has one of the most delicious will-they-won't-they romance subplots I have ever read. - Ilana

Just like the high school friend your mother didn’t approve of, this book will shock you, make you cackle, and get under your skin. - Ilana

“Food is a religion of its own. This is my sermon about my Soul food.” I love reading the words in Todd Richards’s book as much as I love cooking from it. Richards starts each chapter with a recipe that is relatively traditional in African-American cuisine (like Collard Greens with Smoked Ham Hocks) then follows it with recipes that explore new techniques and flavor combinations (such as Young Collard Greens with Bacon, Calamari, Tomatoes, Olives, and Mint). This book is a beautiful example of how honoring your heritage can give you the roots to grow. - S.B.
