Publisher's Summary

Trick or treat - and murder - are on the menu in this first in a new culinary mystery series.

Life couldn't be sweeter for Tres Amigas Café chef Rita Lafitte, decorating sugar skulls and taste testing rich, buttery pan de muerto in anticipation of Santa Fe's Day of the Dead bread baking contest. That is until her friendly landlord, Victor, is found dead next door.

Although the police deem Victor's death a suicide, Rita knows something is amiss. To uncover the truth, she teams up with her octogenarian boss, Flori, the town's most celebrated snoop. The duo begins to sift through long-buried secrets to take full measure of duplicitous neighbors, but the clock is ticking, and their list of suspects is growing ever longer. Just as the clues get hotter than a New Mexican chili, one of their main suspects winds up dead. Rita fears that the killer is dishing out seconds - and her order might be up.

Don't waste time or money

This was an awful book. I could not get passed the first few chapters.
