AN APPETITE FOR MURDER
A Key West Food Critic Mystery
BY LUCY BURDETTE

ABOUT THE BOOK: 
Hayley Snow's life always revolved around food. But when she applies to be a food critic for a Key West style magazine, she discovers that her new boss would be Kristen Faulkner-the woman Hayley caught in bed with her boyfriend! Hayley thinks things are as bad as they can get-until the police pull her in as a suspect in Kristen's murder. Kristen was killed by a poisoned key lime pie. Now Hayley must find out who used meringue to murder before she takes all the blame.

I got stuck on the recipe in the review---it made me think of spring and all the rhubarb I'll be getting from my CSA membership. I love rhubarb and it's only available fresh for such a short period of time. Cozy mysteries with good recipies are always fun to read so I'd like to try this one.

Sue Farrell said...

On the author's website I tried to find her golf cozies---I did finally find the titles of three books, but could not find descriptions. She wrote them under the name of Roberta Islieb, so I guess I'll do some more internet searching.

She has a recipe for hot fudge pie that is so easy and so (as she describes it) artery-clogging. It sounds wonderful.
