This time, there is simply NO WAY our polite and caring heroine will manage all of these family, pet and dessert problems, let alone solve the murder and maintain her sanity. Can she?

    10. I enjoyed this delicious book very much. This is the first of the series that I've read (I won a copy from the author); I'll definitely read the rest. Hayley Snow and her wacky relatives are the characters that drive this book. They've shown up for a wedding that is definitely (and maybe permanently) cancelled. Hayley has to try keeping them entertained on Key West during spring break. There is tension between Hayley's mother and her stepmother to be managed. Hayley's boss keeps piling on additi [...]

    11. At this time of year, those of us buried in snow are longing to get away.

    12. Key West restaurant critic and magazine feature writer Hayley Snow has a lot on her plate.

When Hayley’s cats tangle with the neighbor’s new Schnauzer, the cupcakes are the casualties. That’s a minor problem—on his first night in town, Hayley’s fifteen year old stepbrother go [...]

    13. Lucy Burdette, aka Roberta Isleib, is a solid writer with a soft heart that packs a punch. Her characters are more on the real side than many cozy mysteries provide, and there's enough spice and sizzle to keep the plot moving along from the appetizers straight through the entrees and finish off nicely with the perfect dessert. I haven't tried her recipes because I am convinced I gain pounds enough just reading them.If you haven't followed Hayley Snow on her scooter through the streets of Key Wes [...]

    14. This series is fun and smart, especially psychologically smart. This time Hayley is helping put on her friend Connie's wedding (yummy key lime cupcakes) and there's plenty of family drama (her divorced parents arrive with new significant others) even before her stepbrother disappears. It's the perfect antidote for winter. Perfect for fans of Diane Mott Davidson. (I was thrilled to get an early copy of this.)

    15. A cozy mystery with a familial twist. Add a sprinkling of food and you have a delightful read.The main character is dealing with a friend's wedding and the arrival of a less-than-comfy assortment of family members. In particular, her teen-aged, angst ridden step brother.The brother disappears, the wedding is off (or is it?), and the search for answers is on."Visit" Key West by reading this book and have a good time.

    16. Wedding bells, murder, treasures, family troubles and more. This was such a good book. It was great to meet more of Hayley's family and it looks like there are two possible romantic interests for her. I had an inkling who was involved with the murder but didn't know for sure until the end when it came out. Looking forward to reading the next book!

    17. I enjoyed this book a good bit. The story was interesting for the most part and it wasn't slow paced. The mystery elements were well written. I'd recommend this book. Note: I received a copy through first-reads but that doesn't affect my review or opinions of the book.

    18. It was a little slow at first but the very end is really good. You do not know who the murderer is till near the end with Hayley getting into trouble because she wanted to help someone in trouble. Great recipes at the end. This is more of an enjoyable one.

    19. This is a fun series of books with Key West the location it centers around. The restaurants I think are fictitious but the streets and sights are real. I love this main character and her adventures and this one I read out of order but explains her family and a wedding to take place. The ganache is not prominent in the story till the end. Her step brother gets hurt spoils the family reunion until Hayley Snow can figure out what has happened and lead the police to the right people chasing the home [...]

Yup, this book (and series) has it all for the cozy mystery buff.I'm not one to just jump into the middle of a series of books. I hate that not knowing feeling about c [...]

    24. This especially bad winter has been the perfect time to catch up reading Lucy Burdette's Key West Food Critic Mystery series. Each book is like taking a vacation to my favorite tropical spot for relaxation and fun. Burdette captures the essence of Key West perfectly, while taking readers on a delicious journey of culinary offerings on the island But, she doesn't shy away from exposing some of the less savory aspects of the island life. It's a feel good read anchored in reality. In Murder with Ga [...]
