Death of A Cookbook Author by Lee Hollis


This is the tenth in the A Hayley Powell Food and Cocktails Mystery.  Hayley meets her lifestyle guru/cookbook author idol at a book signing and gets invited to a cooking competition at her estate.  Once there, Hayley meets an interesting cast of characters, the perhaps errant husband of her hostess, the femme fatale assistant, the other chefs, and an old boyfriend, now landscaper.  A murder occurs and  that is just the start of mysterious incidents at the event.  Hayley investigates to try to prove that she isn’t a hysteric.  This was a pretty good cozy mystery.
