Synopsis:
The only snow in Key West this Christmas is Hayley Snow, food critic for Key Zest magazine, who is not getting time off for the holiday…or time off from murder.
It may be Christmastime, but thoughts of peace on earth, good will toward men, don’t seem to extend to the restaurant biz. Hayley has been assigned to interview Edel Waugh, chef/owner of Key West’s hottest new restaurant. But off the record, Edel reveals someone’s sabotaging her kitchen and asks Hayley to investigate.
Things heat up fast when the restaurant is set on fire—and a body is discovered in the charred wreckage. Is someone out to destroy the chef’s business—or actually kill her? Amid holiday festivities like the lighted boat parade and visiting relatives who stir up mixed emotions, Hayley needs to smoke out an arsonist and a killer who may turn up the heat on her next…
INCLUDES RECIPES!

My Review:

This was a great cozy that kept my attention throughout ant kept me entertained.  I really like the character of Hayley Snow, she seems to be a down-to-earth person that I can relate too.  She also has a knack for sticking her nose into things that she shouldn't.  She has to figure out a mystery and try to keep her job all at the same time, but is it possible that the two situations have more to do with each other than what Hayley first thought?  This is a great cozy to start off your holiday reading if you haven't started it yet, wouldn't Christmas in Key West be great?

I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest review.
