Death of a Country Fried Redneck by Lee Hollis

Death of a Country Fried Redneck (Hayley Powell Food and Cocktails Mystery, #2)

Book two in the Hayley Powell Food & Cocktails Mystery series. I did not like this book as much as I liked the first one. It starts with Hayley being really excited that her favorite country singer is coming to town to hold two charity concerts. He will be looking to hire a chef for his stay which gives Hayley hope that she can meet him by cooking for him. She sneaks into the kitchen at the diner to cook his breakfast and though and behold while things did not work exactly as planned she still got the job. While delivering his food she is harassed by one of his road crew so the singer fires him. Things should have been fine but the guy is found dead later after being burnt up in one of the tour buses. Of course the singer has to be one of the main suspects so Hayley has to finds out what really happened to clear his name. The murder investigation follows a normal pattern which in a good world would mean that it was good but all the fan girl antics in this book turned me right off. It seemed like every other page Hayley was acting like a teenager meeting her crush which is really annoying. I was happy to hit the last page so I can move onto the next book in the series hoping that it is more like the first one then this one. I marked it as 3/5 stars on Goodreads but if I am being totally honest it is more like 2.5.
