Murder with Ganache

 This is the 4th book in the Key West Food Critic mysteries by Lucy Burdette.  The mysteries do a wonderful job of mixing Key West flair and a cozy mystery together.  I appreciate how Burdette creates a storyline that introduces extra characters while still fitting within the inner circle of Hayley Snow's life.  The book is full of character interaction, family drama and miscommunication, just like real life.  The charm of Key West is shown during this book as Hayley hosts family from out of town, it gives a glimpse into the major tourist sites while in the context of the eyes of a local.  The books continue to engage my interest and indulge in a foodies desire to read about food and recipes

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Good twist with unexpected villain

These cozies set in key west are always a joy to read. I enjoyed the take on the crime that mixed some of the treasure hunter lore and Hemingway notoriety into the mystery. Good balance of personal life mixed with crime solving
