This a long running series but the book was new for me. I had problems keeping the characters separate. I found the descriptions of the characters fully developed and of the area easy to imagine yourself there. The zombies were very detailed and I good feel myself in the zany crowd. Hayley has been assigned to write stories about ‘grab and go’ eateries. We find ourselves eating some special meals. There wasn’t much of a mystery, the cause of death being a problem. Hayley’s friend Danielle is Queen of the Festival and her opponent dies in the parade. Danielle is a ‘person of interest’, Hayley inquiry about the case to clear Danielle’s name.
Disclosure: I received a free copy from Berkley Publishing Group through NetGalley for an honest review. I would like to thank them for this opportunity to read and review the book. The opinions are my own.op
