As the new food critic for Key Zest magazine, Hayley Snow went from being a culinary groupie to one of Florida’s cutting-edge tastemakers. But as always, when life serves Haley a dream come true, it comes paired with a most exquisite murder....

The annual Key West literary conference is drawing the biggest names in food writing from all over the country, and Haley is there to catch a few fresh morsels of insider gossip. Superstar restaurant critic Jonah Barrows has already ruffled a few foodie feathers with his recent tell-all memoir, and as keynote speaker, he promises more of the same jaw-dropping honesty.

But when Hayley discovers Jonah’s body in a nearby dipping pool, the cocktail-hour buzz takes a sour turn, and Hayley finds herself at the center of attention—especially with the police. Now it’s up to her to catch the killer before she comes to her own bitter finish.

    An engaging & charming "foodie" mystery!

    The second book featuring Haley Snow, an up & coming, or struggling food critic, in Key West (depending upon whose interpretation you hear) is a cozy & engaging food mystery. Haley is juggling entertaining her visiting mother with trying to retain her job writing for "Key Zest", helping a friend to avoid a murder charge and attending the local literature conference. The conference, this year, is focusing on food writers & Haley & her mother are looking forward to attending the conference even though Haley wishes she was one of the panel members. When one of the writers is killed the first evening of the conference, Haley is inadvertently drawn in to the investigation. How many secrets are the panelists hiding? Is one of the attendees responsible for the death or is the murderer a food writer? Will Hayley be able to keep her job with the magazine? I love the Key West setting for these books and the descriptions of the food encountered at the conference & the local restaurant scene. The interpersonal relationships between Hayley, her mother, her friends & her possible boyfriend are well written & believable. The recipes given at the end of the book are an added bonus to this enjoyable read & are much appreciated! I am looking forward to catching up with the rest of the books in this charming series.
