Fatal Reservations

A Key West Food Critic Mystery, #6

Fatal Reservations is a great read for fall. With graveyard guides, tarot readers and a dead body on a boat. The food descriptions were so good that I could taste them and there were plenty of them as well.

Key West is somewhere that I have never been but I loved reading about the area and the weather. The quotes at the beginning of the chapters were fun to read, and some made me what to read the sources that they were from.

Recipes are also included in the back of the book.

Book Blurb for Fatal Reservations

In the latest Key West Food Critic mystery, Hayley Snow’s beat is reviewing restaurants for Key Zest magazine. But she sets aside her knife and fork when a dear friend is accused of murder…

Hayley Snow looks forward to reviewing For Goodness Sake, a new floating restaurant that promises a fresh take on Japanese delicacies like flambéed grouper with locally sourced seaweed. But nearby land-based restaurateurs would rather see their buoyant competition sink.

Sent to a City Commission meeting to cover the controversy, Hayley witnesses another uproar. The quirky performers of the daily Sunset Celebration are struggling to hold onto their performance space. The fight for Mallory Square has renewed old rivalries between Hayley’s Tarot-card reading friend Lorenzo and a flaming-fork-juggling nemesis, Bart Frontgate—but things take a deadly turn when Bart is found murdered.

If Lorenzo could read his own cards, he might draw The Hanged Man. He can only hope that Hayley draws Justice as she tries to clear him of murder…
