When a killer strikes just before flan time, beloved food critic Hayley Snow is forced to sniff out the killer before someone else bites the dust.
Hayley Snow, fiery food critic for Key Zest magazine, has just landed a ticket to one of the most prestigious events in Key West: a high-brow three-day conference at the Harry Truman Little White House. Even though she’ll be working the event helping her mother’s fledgling catering business, there’s plenty of spicy gossip to go around. But just before her mother’s decadent flan is put to the test, Key West’s most prized possession, Hemingway’s Nobel prize gold medal for The Old Man and the Sea, is discovered stolen from its case.
Unsavory suspicions point to Gabriel, a family friend and one of the new busboys working the event, who mysteriously goes missing moments later. Anxious to clear his name, Gabriel’s family enlists Hayley to help find him, but right as they begin their search, his body is found stabbed to death in the storeroom.
Hayley has no shortage of suspects to interrogate and very little time before the killer adds another victim to the menu in national bestselling author Lucy Burdette’s delectable eighth Key West Food Critic mystery, Death on the Menu.

*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.
What a great addition to this wonderful cozy mystery series. Set in Key West, as the series name implies, we get a mystery that us just full of food as well as a smart heroine. Hayley Snow keeps busy at her regular job as food critic for Key Zest magazine and her agreement to help her mother's big catering gig when she finds herself in the middle of the investigation of another murder. Just full of Key West history, a mystery, and characters to liven up the book as the investigation goes on in between the plot twists. The food descriptions will make your mouth water with recipes given to help you recreate them yourself. Great for fans of culinary cozy mysteries. I really liked it so I give it 4/5 stars.
