Reviewed by:  Tina


Our feisty and sassy "Chili Chick" dressed as a sexy hot pepper complete with stilettos and fish net stockings, Maxie  is at it again this time Maxie and her half sister, Sylvia are in San Antonio,Texas with "The Palace"  food  truck, that makes their missing father Jack's delicious chili by the pot full. They are a part of the "Chili Showdown" featuring the Chili Queens.

 In the old days of San Antonio the Chili Queens made chili from their homes and gave appetizing bowls to the people. Maxie and Sylvia together The "Chili Showdown"and the "Chili Queens"  and other cooks an example being Maxie and Sylvia's neighbors in the next tent, drag queens and also the descendants  of the "Chili Queens" themselves.

When a strumming and dreamy guitar player at the Showdown finds himself a victim after being strangled by his own guitar strings Maxie has to put her chili cooking on hold when friend and Maxie is head over her stiletto heals for, head of security for the showdown,Nick he soon becomes a suspect when it's discovered that the victim and Nick knew each other but not a friendly way.

 This casa nova, dirty dealing guitar player is more that what he says his was and more suspects at the festival surface, like a jilted ex-girlfriend beauty queen and the "Chili Queen" descendants and someone is desperately  trying to stop Maxie in her tracks even if it means she could possibly end up dead.

Author Kylie Logan writes a fast paced fun and exciting and very hard to put down mystery with Revenge of the Chili Queens. Once again her plotting and writing are better than ever. I love food competitions on television and when I discovered this series I was hooked and being a lover of chili made it even better reading about a food I love.

 Characters that make you want to come back for more, half sisters with a questionable relationship with conflict and a history and with worry and searching for their missing father,Jack made Revenge of the Chili Queens more  hard to put down.
