Carried to the Grave and Other Stories by Leslie Budewitz contains tales involving the characters from A Food Lover’s Village Mystery series. Erin Murphy in Jewel Bay, Montana runs the Merc, a local food market. There are five short stories and one novella in this book. This is a nice addition to the series. Each storyline ties back to Erin Murphy and/or The Merc. We get to see how Adam went from friend to husband in this collection. I especially enjoyed An Unholy Death where we get to go back to the opening of The Mercantile. I thought the stories were well-written and engaging. We get a chance to explore Jewel Bay and get to know the unique characters (past and present) that reside in the town a little better. Fans of the series will enjoy these fun mysteries. You can read all at once or one at a time. Carried to the Grave and Other Stories contains humor, romance, mystery, kindness, and more than a little mayhem.
