~Carla Loves To Read
I have enjoyed each and every visit to Key West. These are some of my favorite cozy characters and a literary vacation to Key West is always fun, no matter what time of year.
~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book
A DEADLY FEAST is a fast-paced book centered around family with plenty of culinary treats and a mystery to die for.
~Cozy Up With Kathy
I love Hayley and the rest of the gang, so it is always fantastic to spend time with them . . . And if Miss Gloria, Hayley’s octogenarian roommate, doesn’t make you smile, then I don’t know what will.
I really liked Hayley and Analise, as well as the supporting characters and the setting.
~The Book’s the Thing
A Deadly Feast by Lucy Burdette is an intriguing mystery with lots of delectable foods. I loved the setting, characters and the intuition used to help find the clues.
~Baroness’ Book Trove
A DEADLY FEAST is a drool-worthy book and Ms. Burdette provides the reader with recipes at the back of the book to make those drools a reality.
~Cinnamon and Sugar and a Little Bit of Murder
Hayley is a great character . . . I loved . . . how she gets to the bottom of the mystery!
Kept me guessing though until the full reveal at the end mixing with the sweet wedding.

National bestselling author Lucy Burdette’s intrepid food critic Hayley Snow must sniff out a killer in the ninth Key West Food Critic mystery.
Key West food critic Hayley Snow scents-es something fishy when a customer falls stone-crab cold dead on a seafood tasting tour.
Thanksgiving is nearly here, and Key West food critic Hayley Snow has just one more assignment to put to bed for Key Zest magazine before she gets to celebrate with her family and her police officer fiancé, Nathan Bransford. Then, just days later, wedding bells will ring—if death doesn’t toll first.
The sweet potatoes and stuffing will have to wait when Hayley picks up a distraught phone call from her friend, Analise Smith. On the last stop of a seafood tasting tour run by Analise, one of the customers collapsed—dead. With the police on the verge of shutting down the tour—and ruining Analise’s business—Hayley can hardly refuse her friend’s entreaties to investigate.
As if wedding jitters and family strife weren’t enough for Hayley to worry about, there’s crusty pastry chef Martha Hubbard, whose key lime pie may have been the murder weapon—but did she poison her own pie or was she framed? As the hours to Turkey Day tick away, the pressure cooker is on for Hayley to serve up the culprit on a silver platter in A Deadly Feast, national bestselling author Lucy Burdette’s taste-tempting ninth Key West Food Critic mystery.
