Publisher's Summary

Food anthropologist Miriam Quiñones-Smith's move from New York to Coral Shores, Miami, puts her academic career on hold to stay at home with her young son. Adding to her funk is an opinionated mother-in-law and a husband rekindling a friendship with his ex. Gracias to her best friend, Alma, she gets a short-term job as a Caribbean cooking expert on a Spanish-language morning TV show. But when the newly minted star attends a Women's Club luncheon, a socialite sitting at her table suddenly falls face-first into the chicken salad, never to nibble again. 

When a second woman dies soon after, suspicions coalesce around a controversial Cuban herbalist, Dr. Fuentes - especially after the morning show's host collapses while interviewing him. Detective Pullman is not happy to find Miriam at every turn. After he catches her breaking into the doctor's apothecary, he enlists her help as eyes and ears to the places he can't access, namely the Spanish-speaking community and the tawny Coral Shores social scene. 

As the ingredients to the deadly scheme begin blending together, Miriam is on the verge of learning how and why the women died. But her snooping may turn out to be a recipe for her own murder.

Nonsense

The first chapter was so nonsensical and ridiculous that I couldn’t continue. I’ll probably try to return it, but I believe it was a Daily Deal.

FUN, FLAVORFUL, FAST, AND FURIOUS!

This is an excellent first novel featuring the Caribbean culture, especially the cuisine, and cleverly told in occasional easy-to-understand bursts of Spanglish. I found this a welcome change in the female mystery genre and a worthy sendup of the MURDER SHE WROTE mysteries the heroine admires.
