Review; Murder with Collard Greens and Hot Sauce by A. L. Herbert

I was recently fortunate enough to recieve an ARC of the cosy mystery Murder with Collard Greens and Hot Sauce by A. L. Herbert through Netgalley. As this mystery also fits into the 2019 Diversity Reading Challenge, I read it a short time after I recieved it and today I'll post my review.

Description from Goodreads
Mahalia’s Sweet Tea boasts the most flavorful soul food in all of Prince George’s County, Maryland. But as events at the beauty industry’s leading trade show turn ugly, owner Halia Watkins needs to bite into an unsavory new item on the menu—murder!

When the chicest hair convention of the year gets cooking in town, so does business at Mahalia’s Sweet Tea. Halia can barely handle the influx of customers looking to satisfy their appetites after spending the day surrounded by outrageous runway styles. As buzz builds around beauty mogul and pop culture icon Monique Dupree, collard greens start moving out of the kitchen faster than models strutting down the catwalk . . .

But the glitz fades the moment Monique is found shot to death. Turns out, the glamorous entrepreneur’s vanity empire was stained by bitter rivalries, explosive affairs, and backstabbers scheming for fame and fortune. With more suspects than ingredients listed on a bottle of deep conditioner, Halia and her cousin Wavonne rush to discover who pulled the trigger—before the conniving culprit dishes another deadly surprise . . .

My Thoughts on the Book
Murder with Collard Greens and Hot Sauce is a charming and funny cosy mystery. I loved several of the characters, Halia included, and how Southern comfort food plays a role in this book. There's also a few recipes included in this cosy mystery. It's fair to say I got a bit hungry while reading and I am now keen on reading more books in this series.
