CHILI CON CORPSES is the perfect mystery novel for those embarking on a New Year's diet. Join overweight librarian James Henry and his friends, The Flab Five, as they battle the bulge and a ruthless killer.

Things are chugging merrily along for librarian James Henry. He has a closet filled with new clothes, a trimmer waistline and a closer bond with his father. His only real problem is that his girlfriend Lucy's interest in him seems to have inexplicably cooled. When schoolteacher Lindy suggests the club members join a Mexican cooking class, James jumps at the idea. Over cervezas and black bean dip, the supper club members warm to their new adventure. The class heats up even more when a reporter and her friends, twin sisters with supermodel physiques, enroll. But when people start turning up dead, and the evidence points toward Lindy, things become hotter than a jalapeño. James, who was looking to add a little more spice to his life, gets much more than he bargained for.

The critics say:

Publishers Weekly:
"Heavy on fun, light on gore, this savory mystery comes complete with yummy recipes."

Kirkus Reviews:
"Mexican recipes, the cozy hometown setting, and a touch of romance make [Chili con Corpses] a pleasant read."

Booklist: "Stanley offers another entry in the popular Supper Club Mystery series, and her fans now have a new volume to relish."

Also by J.B. Stanley: "Carbs & Cadavers" and "Fit to Die" as well as the Molly Appleby Antiques & Collectibles Mystery Series including: "A Killer Collection," "A Fatal Appraisal" and "A Deadly Dealer."
