 Good gravy, Killer Takeout was a killer good read. Fantasy Fest is coming to Key West. It's includes adult themed parties gearing up for Halloween, including parades, a pet masquerade contest and a tutu party. Out of town visitors plan to invade Key West for the festivities. Including people painted in body paint and not much else. Food Critic for Key Zest Magazine, Hayley Snow is not reviewing many restaurants this time around she's sampling and reviewing some delicious takeout of the fabulous restaurants in Key West.

 Hayley's mom, Janet and fiance, Sam are in town to visit friend Connie's new baby and to get married on the beach but with tropical storm “Margaret” threatening to take over Key West their wedding may be in question. At the Zombie Bike ride where everyone dons their pest zombie paint on everyone's faces. Caryn Durckman fell of her bike and with Hayley riding in front of her Hayley gets off her bike to see if she can assist. They take Caryn to the Hospital and she is pronounced dead.

Danielle, Haley's friend and receptionist at Key Zest magazine becomes a person of interest after a fight Danielle and Caryn had before her death they were both competing in the Key West queen Competition where the person who raised the most money for AIDS Help won and the winner was Danielle. Caryn was known to be a “pain” and competitive. Hayley will put herself in the line of fire once again finding a killer and what happened with the voting of the queen.

 All the while Hayley and her heartthrob, Detective are having problems in the love department. Danielle may be the killers next intended victim when she is rushed to the hospital. Hayley must beat hurricane “Margaret” and ride out the storm to find a killer.

Delicious descriptions of food never fail to tantalize your taste buds in Killer Takeout. Fun and entertaining and thrilling hoping against hope they will be safe from approaching hurricane “Margaret”. With Zombie bike rides, pet dress -up, body paint, Key West was buzzing with parades, food and drag queens and hot weather and murder. Dogs dressed as royalty, cats in tutus, birds and even pigs. I ripped through the pages to get to the end. I look forward to reading and reviewing the next book in this awesome series.
