Book #1 in the Taste of Texas Mystery series: In this all-new culinary cozy mystery series, reporter turned Tex-Mex waitress Josie Callahan is about to go from serving queso to solving cases...

After losing her newspaper job in Austin and having her former fiance unfriend her on Facebook, Josie Callahan scoops up her Chihuahua, Lenny, and slinks back to Broken Boot, Texas. Maybe working as head waitress at Milagro - her aunt and uncle's Tex-Mex restaurant - isn't exactly living the dream, but it is a fresh start.

And business is booming as tourists pour into Broken Boot for its famous Wild West Festival. But when a local jewelry designer is found strangled outside Milagro after a tamale-making party, Josie's reporter instincts kick in. As suspects pile up and alibis crack faster than taco shells, Josie needs to wrap up this case tighter than her Tia's tortillas - before another victim calls for the check...

My Review: This was a good cozy mystery. It's a little bit slow in places but overall a fun read. Josie Callahan is a great main character, I want to see what happens next.

I have the next book in this series and plan to read it soon: The Good, the Bad and the Guacamole

This was in a box of mysteries that JennyC1230 surprised me with. I know I will enjoy this one, perhaps I will find a good recipe for Texas BBQ tucked inside this new to me series. =) Thank you!

I really enjoyed this cozy mystery. The main character, Josie, is very likeable. Her dog, Lenny, is a Chihuahua and a cutie..."yip." The mystery is a good, fast read. No spoilers here. Looking forward to the next one, starting today.
