A Key Lime pie mishap in Key West

In this first installment of a new series, The Key West Food Critic by Lucy Burdette, we meet Hayley Snow.   A recent transplant from New Jersey who is growing very fond of her new home in Key West.  Although crashing on her friend's houseboat probably isn't what she had in mind when she followed her boyfriend to Key West.  This character is a bit of a mess but is likable none the less.  The book has lots of good descriptions of the character of Key West and the foods that Hayley consumes while on her quest to become the new food critic for the Key Zest magazine.  The supporting characters of her friend, Connie and Eric as well as their significant others add to the story line and develop her world as we get a glimpse into it.  All in all I enjoyed this book and will look to find others in the series.

An Appetite for Murder (Key West Food Critic Mystery, #1)An Appetite for Murder by Lucy Burdette
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A fun cozy set in Key West. The main character, Hayley Snow, is a bit flighty but lovable character who makes some bumbling mistakes while trying to prove she didn't commit a murder of her ex's current flame. She is simultaneously trying to land a food critic job at a new magazine in town. All the while trying to prove to herself and her family she didn't make a mistake by following her heart to the Southernmost point in the US. If you enjoy reading about food dishes and the fun lifestyle of Key West you will enjoy this book.
