Listen up, my friends, because I've got a juicy scoop for you. Ellery Adams has cooked up a tantalizing tale that will have you craving more, and Karen White is here to narrate it all in her mesmerizing voice. But be warned, this audiobook might not satisfy your cravings as much as you'd hope. I'm dishing out a rating of 2.4 out of 5 stars.
In this mouthwatering story, we follow James Henry and his fellow food lovers, the Flab Five, as they embark on a savory adventure. They've snagged a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be judges at the renowned Hog Fest, a finger-licking barbecue festival nestled in the luscious Virginia mountains. But hold onto your napkins, folks, because things take a spicy turn when one of the "pit masters" meets an untimely demise. To make matters worse, a member of the supper club finds themselves accused of the crime. It's a saucy situation that requires James and his crew to roll up their sleeves and sink their teeth into catching the real killer.
Picture this: a vibrant fairground bustling with fascinating characters and an aroma that will have your stomach rumbling. The Flab Five, however, are faced with a challenge. Can they resist the seductive flavors that surround them and stay on their diet? But that's not all that's on James's plate, my friends. His trusty bookmobile has hit the brakes, leaving him stranded without his beloved library on wheels. To add more spice to the mix, there are some shady dealings happening within the hallowed walls of his library. And if that's not enough, his relationship with Murphy Alistair is on the rocks. James needs to put down the pork ribs and the fried pickles (believe me, it's tough) and focus on solving these simmering problems. Hog Fest might be a celebration of all things tangy and succulent, but underneath it all, a killer is lurking.
With Adams' delectable storytelling and White's captivating narration, you'll be transported to a world where mysteries sizzle on the grill and every clue tastes as sweet as barbecue sauce. So grab your headphones and prepare yourself for a feast of intrigue, because Hog Fest is anything but a walk in the park. Just don't blame me if you find yourself craving some finger-licking goodness along the way.
