Overview
"Hayley Snow, the food critic for "Key Zest "magazine, has her plate heaped high with restaurant reviews, doughnut and sticky bun tastings, and an article on the Hemingway cats. But this week she s also in charge of her best friend s wedding. And then someone adds a side of murder "
For better or worse, Hayley has agreed to bake over 200 cupcakes for her friend Connie s wedding while still meeting her writing deadlines. The last thing she needs is family drama. But her parents come barreling down on the island like a category 3 hurricane and on their first night in town her stepbrother, Roby, disappears into the spring break party scene in Key West.
When Hayley hears that two teenagers have stolen a jet ski, she sets aside her oven mitts and goes in search of Rory. She finds him, barely conscious, but his female companion isn t so lucky. Now Hayley has to let the cupcakes cool and assemble the sprinkles of clues to clear her stepbrother s name before someone else gets iced."

Gourmets who enjoy a little mayhem with their munchies will welcome Burdette's fourth Key West mystery featuring food critic Hayley Snow (after 2013's Topped Chef). Soon after the arrival of Hayley's dysfunctional family in Key West, Fla., for the wedding of Hayley's best friend, her 15-year-old stepbrother, Rory, the epitome of sullen adolescence, disappears. A search locates Rory in a coma aboard an abandoned sailboat the next day, but the subsequent discovery of the drowned body of the girl Rory ran off with makes the boy a murder suspect. Burdette (the pen name of Roberta Isleib) does a good job integrating information about runaway teens into the plot, along with appealing food details. Mystery purists may disapprove of a solution that involves someone not identified until late in the story—as well as an otherwise intelligent lead who flouts a police order to stop following the chief suspect and throws herself into the fray. Agent: Paige Wheeler, Folio Literary Management. (Feb.)
