Publisher's Summary

As the owner of Mahalia’s Sweet Tea, Halia Watkins is famous in Maryland’s Prince George’s County for her down-home cuisine. But when she has the chance to showcase her talents on national TV, she becomes the star of a murder mystery that’s too hot to handle! 

When Halia is invited to serve as a guest judge on the popular cooking competition show Elite Chef, she’s delighted to add some extra flavor to the mix. But as filming ramps up in Washington D.C., there are too many fiery personalities in the kitchen. Halia discovers that pulling off her small screen debut unscathed means contending with a longtime competing restaurant owner, an infamously crass hospitality mogul, and a group of cutthroat contestants vying for culinary glory....

The competition sizzles with only a few finalists left standing - and goes cold when the gorgeous young frontrunner is found dead. As murder accusations are slathered over a recently eliminated contestant, Halia, with some bungling assistance from her wise-cracking cousin Wavonne slides into an investigation of their own. A little snooping reveals the victim burned lots of bridges, leaving a slew of alleged affairs and stolen recipes in her wake. With a fast-rising list of potential suspects, Halia must sort through mindboggling clues to fry the flaky culprit before someone else gets baked to a crisp....

3 stars

The voice actress didn't sound comfortable. She got better as she went but the beginning sounded really stilted.

Half of the book went by before the murder actually occurred. The first half was largely spent discussing a trip to the African American Museum in DC. The other books in this series relied heavily on certain stereotypes of African Americans to flesh out the characters. I couldn't help but think that this walk through the harsher realities of the African American experience was used to placate critics of the series.

Once the murder mystery part of the story actually began, the story got a bit more interesting. It was just an 'okay' book and that's why I gave it 3 stars.

I’ve Never Seen a Cooking Show

This just doesn’t interest me. I tried by fast forwarding it, but couldn’t find anything interesting. The reader didn’t do it for me.

very good!

This is the first A L Herbert and Hallia books I've listened to. (Accidentally started with book 3.)

Very good! The characters are intelligent and interesting. The pace of the story is good and the mystery was unpacked well. The narrator is excellent as well. I could always tell who was speaking and no one sounds ridiculous.

Ready to listen to the whole series.

Love, Love, Love this series!!!

I love these murder mysteries. Wayvonne has to be my favorite character, hands down. Although, some may say she's stereotypical, I say she's just hilarious and fun loving! Mahalia is great also paired with Wayvonne. The reader does an excellent job, her voice is great to listen to. I have listened to three of them so far.
