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?


Book Review
I really enjoyed reading this cozy mystery by Ann Myers. Being the first book by her that I have read, I loved her writing style and the expert way in which she left clues to the mystery while also entertaining us with Rita's experiences at the Day of the Dead.

I enjoyed reading about all that tasty food which made me hungry and loved the Day of the Dead with its many intriguing customs. A new one for me, I loved reading about this day and really wish to experience it first hand someday!

A lovely story that had me engaged throughout, I strongly recommend it to everyone and give it 4 out of 5 stars. I also look forward to reading more Ann's books and recommend this author to everyone.



I received an ARC from the author and the tour organizers and I am very thankful to them. The above review is my honest and unbiased opinion and in no way influenced.
