Welcome to Mahalia's Sweet Tea-the finest soul food restaurant in Prince George's County, Maryland. In between preparing her famous cornbread and mashed potatoes so creamy "they'll make you want to slap your Momma," owner Halia Watkins is about to dip her spoon into a grisly mystery . . .

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 . . .

Features delicious recipes from Mahalia's Sweet Tea,
including Sour Cream Corn Bread and Sweet Corn Casserole!

This the second book in this series that I have read, and I want more. The characters are fun and Mahalia's cousin Wavonne is sure to tickle your funny bone. A good , fun series.

Mahalia Watkins has built Sweet Tea, a fine dining soul food restaurant, with sweat, tears, and the backing of an investor she doesn't trust. Marcus Rand is suave, charming, and always pursuing business deals that aren't on the "up and up". When Mahalia and her cousin Wavonne find Marcus dead on their kitchen floor, the first thought is to move the body so Sweet Tea doesn't become a crime scene. When the police start looking at Wavonne as the primary suspect, Mahalia decides to help them by finding the real killer. Good characterization and a fast-moving plot makes me hope the author is working on a second book. The book also includes recipes from Sweet Tea.
