Very good first in a series mystery. The setting on a houseboat is a bit different and Key West is always entertaining. Characters are interesting with room for them to grow. Love the food description. Nice addition of Ms. Gloria as an elderly character. Looking forward to book 2 in teh series.
decent overall- the first half of the book was kind of slow (pretty much all that happened was the murder and the police suspecting her!), but the second half was a lot better (more sleuthing,etc). There was a good twist at the end that I didn't see coming.
*although I get that it's a "food" mystery, I felt there was Too Much description of food in it
