A cozy mystery series for calorie conscious readers

I love listening to cozy mysteries.  However, if you’re familiar with this genre, you know that many of the amateur sleuths in these stories are affiliated with establishments that produce scrumptious comfort foods (bakeries, diners, ice cream shops, etc.).  Well, if you’re on a diet and can’t stomach all the talk of high calorie dishes, the Supper Club Mystery series is a good alternative.
What does a librarian, a teacher, a mail carrier, a wannabe sheriff deputy, and a new age pet groomer have in common? Each of them has struggled with weight issues for several years.  In Carbs and Cadavers, the first installment of this seven-part series, these characters happen upon each other and decide to combine forces to motivate each other to lose weight.  They dub themselves “The Flab Five” and meet regularly as a “Supper Club” to share healthy meals. And, of course, as improbable as it sounds, in addition to encouraging each other in their weight loss efforts, they also work together as amateur sleuths to solve the most recent instance of foul-play that occurs in each book.  Set in the fictional town of Quincy’s Gap, Virginia, this series has all the components of a good cozy mystery series: quirky characters, humorous situations, and romantic interests.  Also, the series has a racially diverse cast of characters.
