I'm currently reading The Key Lime Crime by Lucy Burdette. This book is the tenth in the Key West Food Critic Mystery series and was released yesterday.
The week between Christmas and the New Year is Key West's busiest time. Locals try to capitalize by holding special events, such as the search for the best Key Lime Pie, as more rowdy tourists than ever arrive en masse. It's not only the streets that are crowded. Since construction on their new houseboat isn't complete, newlyweds Hayley and Nathan are squeezing in with Miss Gloria and each of their pets. Nathan's announcement that his mother, whom Hayley has yet to meet, is
arriving for an unexpected visit is the icing on the already tilting
cake. While Hayley's mother-in-law seems slightly aloof and not at all interested in Hayley, her foodie lifestyle, or food in general, she becomes very interested and involved after she and Hayley discover a dead body. Could the murder be due to a culinary feud? While Nathan urges Hayley to stay out of it, his mother encourages Hayley to investigate. Will Hayley be able to please them both? More importantly, will she be able to avoid becoming the murderer's next target?
