Title: Fatal Reservations
Author: Lucy Burdette
Series: Book 6 Key West Food Critic Mystery
Publisher: Obsidian Mystery
Source: Received For Review From Publisher
Format: Paperback
Genre: Cozy Mystery
Rating: Five Stars
Reviewed by: Tina


It's time for me to head back on my annual trip to my favorite foodie paradise, a place called Key West for a visit with my favorite Key West Food Critic, Hayley Snow, Lorenzo, the tarot card reader, a gentle soul in Hayley's opinion. Of coarse the local police are not far behind.  There's tension in the air over a opening of a new floating restaurant, with a charming name, For Goodness Sake serving Japanese fare. A restaurant on the water. It has another restaurant owner of Bistro on the Bight on the island, up in arms in fear of a little competition.

At the city commission meeting where they debated the new floating restaurant debacle a different kind of problem was discussed and witnessed by Hayley and the whole of Key West and this problem had residents, the preformers of the Sunset Celebration are fighting to keep their  preformance space and the struggle becomes so bad that a murder of the fork juggling preformer and another Key West resident sends the people of Key West in a tail spin. When Hayley's friend the tarot card reader is arrested for the murder is nothing but misery in the cards for Lorenzo but Haley must have the power of the cards on her side when seeking justice for one of her dear friends that has been her spirit guide through life.

Hayley is one of my all time favorite characters, her passion for food, eating and reviewing it for Key Zest Magazine. You can't help but love Hayley's passion and determination. There's trouble in paradise for Hayley and the magazine owner, Wally when their relationship starts to deteriorate before Hayley's eyes. It may be time for Hayley and Wally to put their romance on the preferable back burner. But all is not lost for her when something happens that I found myself rooting for from the very beginning. Complete with delectable food descriptions, my favorite moments are always when Hayley is cooking or in a restaurant eating and reviewing.

Author Lucy Burdette's love for food and mystery shows through her writing. With a dash of murder  Hayley's life wouldn't be complete with out a little mayhem mixed in. Imagine yourself sitting down in one of your favorite restaurants and your mouth is watering as you scan the menu to find your very favorite meal, you order it and time seems to drag by while waiting for it but when it's set down in front of you, Fatal Reservations is a feast for your senses just like your very favorite meal at a restaurant . I cannot continue to come up with enough adjectives that describe how much I loved this book and this series and I can't wait for my next to trip to Key West to be with Hayley once again.
