Publisher's Summary

Margaritas, spicy guacamole, and murder are among this year's preparations for Cinco de Mayo in the second Santa Fe Café mystery novel.
Tres Amigas Café chef Rita Lafitte is busy baking her green chili soufflés and chocolate flans for Cinco de Mayo. If only her friend, Linda, the daughter of Rita's octogenarian boss, Flori, could get into the festive spirit. Linda's cart, Tía Tamales, is losing business to Crepe Empire, the hottest food cart in Santa Fe. Napoleon, Crepe Empire's owner, is a pompous celebrity chef who wants to squeeze out the competition. But when Linda gets into a heated argument with Napoleon and his corpse is later found stabbed and pinned beneath the wheels of her tamale cart, she becomes the number-one suspect.
Determined to prove Linda's innocence, Rita investigates. From Napoleon's disgruntled former employees to a shady health inspector, the list of suspects is longer than Flori's strings of dried chili peppers. And when another corpse surfaces, Rita must scramble to find an elusive killer with an appetite for murder....

Entertaining and Fun

I enjoyed this book. The characters are well developed and interesting. The plot has lots of red herrings and twist and turns. This is a lighthearted and fluffy cozy mystery. The only thing I do not like is that Audible does not include the recipes. That's very annoying after you have read about delicious food throughout the book.

Great story. Reader needs basic Spanish lesson.

This is a really entertaining mystery. Good plot. Interesting characters. My only complaint about the book is the reader's mispronunciation of Spanish words and you can't have a tale about Santa Fe without lots of Spanish words. Just give the woman a basic pronunciation guide. Lots and lots of people in Santa Fe don't speak Spanish, but everyone pronounces the streets, towns, and menu items correctly.
