#Book Review and Giveaway: An Appetite for Murder

Friday, January 06, 2012 Posted by Dina N

Book Description
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.

My Thoughts
An Appetite for Murder by Lucy Burdette is a delightful cozy mystery, full of quirky characters and delicious food. The heroine, Hayley, is trying to land her dream job as a food critic at a local magazine. Her chances are slim since one of the owners of the publication is dating Hayley's ex. Then the other woman turns up dead - poisoned with a homemade dessert. Hayley quickly becomes number one suspect and now she must clear her name if she wants to stay out of prison.

Ms. Burdette writes with genuine affection for her characters, love for great food and first-hand knowledge of charming Key West. Her wit and sense of humor makes the book even more delectable. This cozy mystery is the first in a new Key West food critic series, and I can't wait for seconds.

An Appetite For Murder: A Key West Food Critic Mystery hit the shelves on January 3, new from Signet.
