Topped Chef by Lucy Burdette Tour

Lucy Burdette the author of Topped Chef is visiting here today. Let's give her a warm welcome!

Book Description
May 7, 2013 Key West Food Critic (Book 3)

Hayley Snow loves her job as the food critic for Key Zest magazine, tasting the offerings from Key West’s most innovative restaurants. She’d rate her life four stars, until she’s forced into the spotlight…and another murder investigation.

Hoping for some good publicity, Hayley’s boss signs her up to help judge the Key West Topped Chef contest. Stakes are high as the winner could be the next cooking-show superstar. Hayley shows up for the filming nervous but excited, until she sees who’s on the judging panel with her: Sam Rizzoli, big shot businessman—and owner of the restaurant she just panned in her first negative review.

When Rizzoli turns up dead, the police assume his killer is one of his business rivals. But Hayley wonders whether someone is taking the contest a little too seriously. With the police following the wrong recipe, it’s up to Hayley to find the killer before she’s eliminated from the show…permanently.

my review:

Lucy Burdette has done it again with the newest installment of the Key West Food Critic Mystery. I adored this book! She is such an amazing Author!

Hayley Snow is a food critic in Key West who had to write a bad review for a local resturaunt, that doesn't set well with some of the townies.
 She has been asked to be a judge for the top reality show, Topped Chef. Hayley gets more than what she bargained for when one of the judges is murdered.  Hayley doesn't know that one of judges is the owner of the resturaunt she gave the bad review to.
She starts to investigate on her own to find the killer before they find her and end her career. As she gets a little closer to finding out who the killer is strange things start to happen.
This was a sensational read! This series is great if you haven't read it pick it up today!
