 About the Book: The Day of the Dead is approaching in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and cook Rita Lafitte is busy decorating sugar skulls, taste-testing pan de muerto (bread of the dead), and refashioning her post-divorce life. She loves her job at Tres Amigas Cafe and feels like she’s found a good home for herself and her teenage daughter…until her kindly landlord is found dead next door, seemingly from suicide.Although Rita discovers evidence of murder, the police aren’t convinced, especially one of the lead detectives who’s also Rita’s ex-husband. To uncover the truth behind her friend’s death, Rita teams up with her octogenarian boss Flori, the town’s most celebrated snoop. Soon, their investigation encompasses other crimes, including break-ins and the murder of their number-one suspect. Rita won’t feel safe until the killer is caught. But when she unearths a long-buried secret, will she become the next victim?

My Review: It was a hard to get into this book at first. I'm not really sure why because it turn out to be a good read. It remind me a little of Angela Lansbury. You know the Murder, She wrote lady. Rita started off wanting to turn over a new leaf and stop snooping but outside forces just wouldn't let that happen. One is her boss who is known as the town snoop. The second, is that her neighbor turns up dead of an apparent suicide but something is just not right.

Surprisingly, there isn't a romance in this. It's about the mystery. The setting is described well. There are also recipes. Being that the main character and her boss work at a cafe food is very much a part of this novel. Really this novel just lives up to the cozy mystery description. Good read for anyone who like light hearted mystery novels.
