Get a taste of justice in the first mystery in national bestselling author Kylie Logan's Chili Cook-Off series

Romance is supposed to be the spice of life. But Maxie Pierce is so done with bad relationships--well, almost. She just has to get rid of the latest loser, Roberto. Besides, she has more important things to worry about. Her daddy, Texas Jack Pierce, king of the chili cook-off circuit, has been missing for nearly six weeks now. In his place, she must team up with her irritating half sister, Sylvia, to promote the family business at the Taos Chili Showdown, to be judged by celebrity chef Carter Donnelly.

But when Maxie discovers Roberto's body in the chef's trailer--only hours after publicly breaking up with him while wearing a giant red chili pepper costume--she suddenly finds she's the one in the spotlight as the police pepper her with questions. Now this Chili Chick needs to kick up the search to catch the real killer and get back to finding her father...
