Hoping for some good publicity, Hayley's boss signs her up to help judge the Key West Topped Chef contest. Stakes are high as the winner could be the next cooking-show superstar. Hayley shows up for the filming nervous but excited, until she sees who's on the judging panel with her: Sam Rizzoli, big shot businessman and owner of the restaurant she just panned in her first negative review. When Rizzoli turns up dead, the police assume his killer is one of his business rivals. But Hayley wonders whether someone is taking the contest a little too seriously. With the police following the wrong recipe, it's up to Hayley to find the killer before she's eliminated from the show permanently.

This was my first taste of this series, and I loved it. Many cozies are set in the north-east USA which I am fine with, but the change to sunny Florida was a welcome treat. I grew to like the characters and it was a good mystery. Will Hayley hook up romantically with her boss or not. I am looking forward to more mysteries in this series.

I'm a fan of the Food Network and this mystery showed some of the underside of t.v. shows about cooking and food. Apparently there are at least two books that are earlier in this series and I have put them on hold. I like the characters and the story was interesting. Looking forward to reading the earlier books and to any future ones too.
