Stiffs and Swine by J.B. Stanley

Shop Indie Bookstores

The whole purpose of this Supper Club is for its five members to lose weight. As in real life, some are more successful than others, but they all keep trying. Librarian James Henry, new sheriff’s deputy Lucy Hanover, schoolteacher Lindy, postman Bennett, and pet guru Gillian have actually gained more fame from their joint sleuthing escapades than they have from their various diet attempts. In this fourth rollicking adventure, they are invited to be guest judges at the forty-seventh annual Hudsonville Hog Festival. They can’t resist the offer; they’ll get back to their diets after the barbecue. All goes well until one of the barbecue contestants is found dead, and one of the flab five is accused of the murder. As always, a few recipes are included in the story, some of them more diet-friendly than others.
