*A Key West Food Critic Mystery***BY LUCY BURDETTE**

**ABOUT THE BOOK:**

*Hayley Snow, the food critic for Key Zest magazine, has her plate heaped high with restaurant reviews, doughnut and sticky bun tastings, and an article on the Hemingway cats. But this week she’s also in charge of her best friend’s wedding. And then someone adds a side of murder...***For better or worse, Hayley has agreed to bake over 200 cupcakes for her friend Connie’s wedding while still meeting her writing deadlines. The last thing she needs is family drama. But her parents come barreling down on the island like a category 3 hurricane and on their first night in town her stepbrother, Roby, disappears into the spring break party scene in Key West.**

**When Hayley hears that two teenagers have stolen a jet ski, she sets aside her oven mitts and goes in search of Rory. She finds him, barely conscious, but his female companion isn’t so lucky. Now Hayley has to let the cupcakes cool and assemble the sprinkles of clues to clear her stepbrother’s name—before someone else gets iced.**

Poor Hayley has her hands full. I'm dizzy just reading about it. And exhausted, too. I'd like to see how she gets everything done, solves the murder and clears Roby's name.

I see she posts on Thursdays on the

Mystery Lovers Kitchen blog. I haven't paid attention but now I will look for her posts. It's always fun to see what they have cooking.

After enduring a winter that has been the worst in years here in Minnesota---a book set in Key West sounds wonderful.

On the author's website I found links to some wonderful recipes, including one for pesto pizza that I think I'll try.

Besides being a food critic and do your own baking for her business Hayley commits to baking for her friend's wedding. Her life becomes more hectic when her stepbrother disappears and when found his girlfriend is dead. I want to read how Hayley with her busy lifestyle figures out who is really the killer.
