Review; Death of a Wicked Witch (Hayley Powell Food and Cocktails Mystery #13) by Lee Hollis

Last year I was fortunate enough to recieve an ARC of the cosy mystery Death of a Wicked Witch (Hayley Powell Food and Cocktails Mystery #13) by Lee Hollis through Netgalley. I read it shortly afterwards and today I'll post my review.

Description from Goodreads
Bar Harbor, Maine, is quieter in the off-season, but the population has just increased a bit with the arrival of Ted and Trudy Lancaster. Ted's taking over for a retiring minister, and Trudy runs a food truck called Wicked 'Wiches. When she stops in at the Island Times office to place an ad, Hayley happily devours the sample sub Trudy offers--and the two become fast friends.

When Trudy tragically dies in her truck while catering a Halloween party, suspicion falls on a cranky, competitive caterer who'd made veiled threats to Trudy. But the case becomes more complicated when Hayley's husband admits he'd seen someone dressed as a witch hurrying away from the food truck--not very helpful when countless women at the party wore the same costume. Now Hayley finds herself sandwiched between witches and witnesses as she considers a smorgasbord of suspects. If she finds the killer, she'll be a local hero . . .

Includes delectable recipes from Hayley's kitchen!

My Thoughts on the Book
Death of a Wicked Witch was a fun, fast paced and engaging cosy mystery. The characters were well developed and interesting, even if I didn't like them all. However, I did enjoy all the recipes in the book and I'm tempted to try a few of them.
