    1. I was about to regret reading this book because it was book 4 and I hate starting a mystery series in the middle of the run. I struggled through the first 3 chapters trying to catch up to speed with the regulars before the mystery started. I hung in and was richly rewarded. What stands out of this book is that Lulu has a village to help her with solving her mystery. She does not lone wolf it. I greatly appreciated the humor and the family and friend connections featured in the story. I look forw [...]


    2. This book was really a hoot!!It's amazing that murder can be funny, but, the drawls and the attitudes of the south,are really amusing.Start of a good series.



    3. As a BBQ professional, Lulu Taylor isn’t allowed to complete in the Rock and Ribs festival, but she’s excited to take some time off from her restaurant to attend the event. Lulu wants to give moral support to her best friend, Cherry, who is leading a team and has high hopes of winning the competition. Unfortunately, Cherry’s fun at the festival is dampened by conflicts with the team in the booth next door. Some of the arguments with the neighboring team become heated and cause quite a scen [...]


    4. There’s trouble in Tennessee when a buffoon named Reuben Shaw stirs up more the Barbecue Sauce and rubs nearly everyone at the Rock and Ribs Festival the wrong way. Lulu’s best friend, Cherry, tangled with him as soon as she realized his booth was next to the Graces booth. But no one was more surprised than her to find him dead with a butcher knife in his chest just a few hours later. While the police start grilling suspects including Cherry, Lulu sets off on her own investigation to make su [...]


    5. RUBBED OUTBy Riley AdamsUp for barbecue? Ribs maybe? While Lulu Taylor is busy running Aunt Pat’s—herbarbecue restaurant in Memphis—her best friend Cherry is helping out their friends at theRock and Ribs Festival.There, Cherry gets into a beef with another contestant in a neighboring booth. ReubenShaw apparently, has a tendency to rub people the wrong way and ends up getting ‘rubbed out’himself. And that happens right after Cherry discovers one of her booth’s tarps is missing. Shefin [...]


    6. It is time for Memphis, Tennessee's 'Rock and Ribs' festival and although professional chefs can not enter, Lulu Taylor, Proprietress of Aunt Pat's Barbeque is attending to support her friends, the Graces while they enter the 'Patio Porkers' contest.In this fourth novel of the series that finds us drooling with the delicious descriptions of the location featured (recipes in the back,) Lulu and Cherry happen on the next booth's leader, a detestable man named Reuben Shaw. There is no lack of suspe [...]


    7. This was my second visit to Aunt Pat's barbecue restaurant in Memphis Tennessee and it was as tasty a cozy mystery can be. Lots of Memphis flavorElvis, blues, Beale St anjd of course Memphis barbecue. While some might be turned off by the almost cliché details used by the author, it really is a fun read for those who enjoy quirky characters and plenty of suspects to go around. Lulu Taylor is a satisfying amateur sleuth and the plot kept me guessing. As soon as I thought I had figured it out the [...]


    8. "Rubbed Out" is a humorous cozy mystery. It's the fourth in a series, but you can follow this story without having read the first novel, and this novel didn't spoil the mysteries in the previous novels.The characters were engaging and reacted realistically to the situations. The details about the area, the festival, and the people brought the story alive in my imagination without slowing the pacing. Whodunit was high on my suspect list, but so many people had a motive that whodunit wasn't obviou [...]


    9. This is the first book in the series which I have read. I believe it would have been easier to follow if I had started at the first book.The mystery is an interesting one. And I recommend you get the first book in the series and enjoy the atmosphere.Lulu Taylor runs a barbecue restaurant in Memphis. Her fame as a cook is almost equaled by her ability to solve a mystery.The victim in this case is a man who is a reprehensible character who takes advantage of everyone he meets. So, the suspects are [...]


    10. I love this series. Lulu and the gang are very likeable characters. There is a big BBQ festival in town, and Cherry and the other Graces have a booth. The booth next to theirs is causing problems because one of the people working the booth has a definite attitude problem. When he turns up dead later anyone who was nearby becomes a suspect, including Cherry. Lulu snoops around to try and get the info that will let Pink know that her dear friend isn't a murderer.This series of books are nice easy [...]


    11. This was a hard book to get through. I loved revisiting Lulu and the supporting characters surrounding Aunt Pat's bbq, but I felt as though 2/3 of the book was Lulu and Cherry just talking about possible whodunit scenarios. Finishing this book was a core, which is the opposite end of the spectrum for which cozy mysteries are supposed to fill. These should be fun, easy reads with an interesting mystery that keeps you turning pages long after your bedtime. I hope the next entry in the Memphis Bbq [...]


    12. Mrs. Lulu, Cherry and the Graces are back at it again with some seriously good BBQ and top notch mystery sleuthing! This time things heat up when one of the competitors at the world famous "Rock and Ribs" BBQ competition and festival gets stabbed, and it's up to the gang at Aunt Pats to find out who did it! This mystery will keep you guessing and your mouth watering with all the mention of great food!


    13. These are decent little cozy mysteries that read fast. The stories remind me alot of the Tea Shop mysteries as the plotting moves along and the main characters rely heavily on gossip and putting themselves in harms way to help the police arrest the suspects. There's really not alot of problem solving going on but in this series the characters are likeable enough. This one focuses mostly on Lulu and Cherry with Flo and Evelyn making a couple of cameos.


    14. I enjoyed this BBQ mystery. It wasn't fast paced or exciting but it moved along at a steady rate and was enjoyable reading in my cushy chair with Spiced Chai and that's what reading a cozy is all about.


    15. Not the best Of this series but pretty good. Lulu seemed to never be in the kitchen and there wasn't much BBQ food talk in this one, other than in the beginning, and I missed that. I do hope this series continues!


    16. This was a slow read for me. I was sometimes bored, often skimmed through sections. Had it been the first in a series, I might have been more forgiving, but the author has had time to solidify the writing and tighten the plotting. I'll not be continuing this series.


    17. I thought this latest novel in this series was just ok. I figured out whodunit before the end? I still will read the series.


    18. Lulu and Cherry at it again.I really loved the way this novel ended, Lulu solved it and survived with a little help from her friends and family.




    19. This series has been one of the most enjoyable series I have read lately. Not only is it a good, fun cozy mystery, but the setting and the characters are outstanding!





    20. I really enjoyed this series. A little hard to follow with all the southern-style talk, but fun, none the less. The culprits remained a surprise until Lulu figured it out.
