These days Hayley Snow
has a full plate. She is busy trying to keep her job at Key
Zest Magazine, refereeing “bouts” between her
mom and step-mom, and helping with her best friend’s
wedding. Oh yes, she is also trying to find a killer. It all
started when her 15 year old stepbrother, Rory, missed his
curfew. Key West has many interesting places to see and go
– but not after your curfew. So Hayley spends the night
searching for him with the help of a very cute police officer.
Still no luck in finding Rory, Hayley heads home to a tasting
of breakfast treats. This is for one of the many articles
she needs to get written this week.
Hayley and friends and family take to the ocean to look for
Rory. He seems to have stolen a Jet Ski with a girl he has
met. Finally an unconscious Rory is found in a derelict sailboat.
He is bleeding from a head wound and is soaking wet. Later
that day, the missing girl turns up in the ocean – drowned.
With no idea what Rory and the girl have gotten into, Hayley
gets involved with the investigation. Hayley better be careful
or she could end up being frosted.
Things to ponder: Why did Rory miss his curfew? What is the
real reason that the wedding was called off? Will Hayley’s
mother ever stop meddling in her love life? Is there really
a page on Facebook for the Courthouse Deli Bench?
You think you will be reading a book on relaxed Key West Time.
Hang on to your hats; this is going to be one crazy adventure
ride. This page-turner kept me up half the night – I
had to finish reading this book. Lucy Burdette does not disappoint.
This has to be my favorite book in the series. The author
has also provided some very yummy recipes. So, if you like
your mystery with a little Key West Style, then you should
be reading Murder with Ganache.
