About the Book:

The Day of the Dead is approaching in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and cook Rita Lafitte is busy decorating sugar skulls, taste-testing pan de muerto (bread of the dead), and refashioning her post-divorce life. She loves her job at Tres Amigas Cafe and feels like she’s found a good home for herself and her teenage daughter…until her kindly landlord is found dead next door, seemingly from suicide.Although Rita discovers evidence of murder, the police aren’t convinced, especially one of the lead detectives who’s also Rita’s ex-husband. To uncover the truth behind her friend’s death, Rita teams up with her octogenarian boss Flori, the town’s most celebrated snoop. Soon, their investigation encompasses other crimes, including break-ins and the murder of their number-one suspect. Rita won’t feel safe until the killer is caught. But when she unearths a long-buried secret, will she become the next victim?


About the Author:

Ann Myers, her husband, and extra-large housecat live in Colorado but, like Rita, feel most at home in Santa Fe.

Review of Bread of the Dead
Review (4 Stars): This is the great start to a new series and I instantly loved Rita from the very beginning of this mystery.  Rita was smart, independent and a great heroine for this series and the secondary characters were just as entertaining.  I loved the culinary aspect of Bread of the Dead which added to the mystery because my mouth watered whenever they mentioned these yummy treats.


Bread of the Dead is a delightful and charming culinary mystery that is sure to please mystery readers.  Excited to read the next book in this well-written series and see what trouble Rita finds herself in next.
