Summary

Halia Watkins has her hands full cooking, hosting, and keeping her boisterous young cousin, Wavonne, from getting too sassy with customers. Having fast-talking entrepreneur Marcus Rand turn up in her kitchen is annoying enough when he's alive - but finding his dead body face-down on her ceramic tile after hours is much worse.

Marcus had his enemies, and the cast iron frying pan beside his corpse suggests that at last, his shady business deals went too far. Halia is desperate to keep Sweet Tea's name out of the sordid spotlight but her efforts only make Wavonne a prime suspect. 

Now Halia will have to serve up the real villain - before the killer returns for a second helping....

Pretty good but...

Murder with Fried Chicken and Waffles is a pretty good mystery, but, I'm not sure I want the next book. The mystery was ok and the characters were engaging, but Wavonne got on my last nerve. Her character was stereotypical and annoying. I'm not sure I can put up with her through another book.

Better than Expected

I almost passed up this gem, the narrator was on point, it was very entertaining and kept my interest. Wavonne was hilarious to say the least. I'm really enjoying the female sleuthing. A little corny, but to the point and very plausible. Looking forward to the next series.
I almost passed this up because of some of the reviews...so glad I decided to give this one a listen!

I was missing Blanche and found Halia

I enjoyed the story though some of the mispronounciations were distracting. I couldn't tell if they were deliberate or not, but the performance overall was good.

Disappointed

I m not a fan of the ending and narrator wasn't that good. I feel Mahalia and her cousin should have gotten some type punishment for moving the body. There dishonesty hurt others .

LOVE THE WITTINESS!

I thoroughly enjoyed this first installment. I came across this author by accident and it was a good accident! Can't wait to start 2nd book. I sure hope the author decides to do more book series too.

Delightful

Really enjoyed this book. The characters were likable. Can't wait to read next book in series. And Halia's "bonus" recipes was a big plus!
