The 3rd book in the Taste of Texas series and a new author for me. I found the characters were developed, good information on Cinco de Meyo, Texas style, the writing did not flow smoothly making it difficult at times to understand. A different method of death was used. I will read the first two books in this series.
Josie Callahan and her long-haired Chihuahua, Lenny are doing a folk dance for a feature at the Fesita in Broken-Boot Texas. Her Uncle Eddie, is hosting the first annual chili cook-off as he is hoping to impress the town council. Josie is inspecting the Chili Cook-off area when she finds an unpopular man dead. This brings the cook-off to a stopped and the state police to the grounds. The twists that occur will keep you amuse until the surprise ending. I recommend this book.
Texas and Mexican recipes are included.
