    Tex-Mex Culinary Cozy Mystery

    The Good, the Bad and the Guacamole is the second book in Rebecca Adler’s Taste of Texas Mystery series. Ms. Adler is a “new to me” promising author. I wish I had read the first book as the early chapters didn’t flow smoothly as I didn’t know who the characters and what the relationships were. Once I figured out the key characters, including Lenny the dog, I truly could enjoy the book. Set in the West Texas town of Two Boots, residents are preparing for the annual Homestead Days celebration. The regional and ethnic cultures are diverse, yet the only plot link is minimal as the protagonist Josie Callahan returns to the area where her family owns a Mexican restaurant. Josie works at her family's two businesses, a Tex-Mex diner and a dance hall, and writes for the local paper. Lenny writes a blog! Jeff Clark, a musician preforming at the festival, is the former love interest of Patti Perez. Patti is the best friend and side kick of protagonist Josie. The country singer is found in her best friend's home landing her best friend in jail hoping Josie will find the real murderer. The protagonist is likable, bright and independent. The supporting characters quirky and interesting, yet lack well-rounded definition. I believe this series does have great potential as the author provides further character development and greater use of the setting which offers a wealth of potential. Recipes are included and mouthwatering. Overall, this was an enjoyable cozy mystery. I would recommend this to any reader who is looking for a new, lighthearted cozy mystery series! Disclosure: I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.
