Heather Havenabout this book: This is Book Six of the Alvarez Family Murder Mysteries and I wanted to highlight everybody's favorite uncle, Tío. What better way to do that than to have him fall in love? And as he's a retired executive chef, what better place to have intrigue and murder happen than at a culinary arts school? After that, it all fell into place. I created a lively cast of characters: a feisty, colorful lady chef from the deep south who wins Tío's heart, her ex, their two-grown sons, knife-wielding chefs and students, all who have motives to do the dirty deed, which is to off the school's head-teaching chef. And a disguised Lee Alvarez goes undercover to solve the case. The book took me fourteen months to finish. The research involved eating all kinds of wonderful food and visiting schools such as the The Culinary Institute of America at Greystone, all a labor of love. Also, it turned out a pretty authentic book, with the exception of the murders, of course! And then there's the food! Possum pie (just the name, no animal in it at all) is just the best. Arkansas's version of a chocolate silk pie, but done with Tío's Mexican touch. I'm proud to say even though this is the sixth book of the series, each book functions as a stand-alone. I can't stand it when I pick up a book and while reading it, feel like I'm coming in on the middle of something. So I don't do it to others!
