Death of a Country Fried Redneck by Lee Hollis

Here's a good cozy mystery with recipes!  Haley is back again and, without even trying, becomes a suspect in a new murder case...

Kensington Books sent me an ARC of this book for review (thank you).  This book will be published on November 6th, so you can get a copy soon.  There is another in this cozy series if you haven't run across it yet.  They're both a good read.

Hayley's "almost" boyfriend is going out of town for a couple of weeks.  She's OK with that.  Especially after she finds out one of her favorite country singers is coming to town to do a couple of benefit concerts.  She has a crush on him.

Poor Hayley has no idea how much a schoolgirl-type crush can get her in.  She gets a job cooking his meals for him and she's excited.  That means she'll get to see him and even talk to him a bit.  But it also means that she earns his ex-wife's wrath, a member of his crew turns up dead, and someone is trying to kill her!  

Lee Hollis is a brother/sister writing team and they do a nice job.  Their stories have enough mystery to make it interesting, the recipes are good, and the killer is not obvious.  I find this series fun to read.

Why not pick up Death of Kitchen Diva and read that one first?  Then you can enjoy both of their books.  There's another one coming, too.

If you'd like my copy of this ARC, please leave a comment here on my blog and then email me at info at with your name and address and why you'd like to read it.  I'll pick a winner in about a week.

Happy reading.

Will be checking out the first book, hoping to find it available as an ebook. I do enjoy a good mystery, especially when the murder is not obvious from the beginning or shortly thereafter. Thanks for the review and for the info on the first one, and that there will be a third.
Would love to win this cozy mystery!
