It's the perfect time of year to savor and dig in to Death with all the Trimmings as it is Christmas time in Key West. Hayley,  Key West's resident food critic for Key Zest Magazine is set to interview Edel Waugh, the chef/owner of a new restaurant, Bistro on the Bight. Edel is worried that someone is tampering with ingredients in her kitchen and it's sending Edel into a tailspin, with the appending opening of her restaurant and Edel knowing the  credibility of Hayley in helping solve past investigations Edel  asks her to help out.

Edel Waugh relocated to Key West to prove herself as a chef, open her restaurant and start a new life but when the restaurant is set on fire and a body is found in the charred wreckage Edel realizes that someone is out to get her and her restaurant. When Hayley discovers Edel is keeping secrets and she discovered who the arson victim is she is shocked but is still determined to find this killer and firestarter to save this fiery chefs reputation.

Chefs, food, restaurants and murder make for a perfect well crafted mystery. Food descriptions that jump right off the page. You can feel Hayley's love for her job as a food critic and her love of food. . My favorite part of the book would have to be when Hayley is dining with the New York Times food Critic, I wanted to eat all the food they were eating. Lucy does a great job at making you feel like you can taste the beautiful food she is describing as you are reading, that's what I love about the Key West Food Critic mysteries. I love reuniting with the characters, Hayley's family and friends. Hayley's passion for food, finding justice, and solving murders is what makes her one of my very favorite characters on the written page.
