Then her Aunt and Uncle arrived unannounced from Albuquerque, New Mexico and the stress heightens. What to do but continue her schedule and include Tia and Tio. Rita's also inherited a position within the New Orleans community and must host her first Mardi Gras party at a very prominent Country Club. One of the guests is car salesman, Big Daddy Boudreaux.
Big Daddy thinks highly of himself and when he targets both Rita and her Aunt Yolanda for his inappropriate attention, Uncle Nestor confronts him. Later, someone else has taken offense against Big Daddy and Rita's first party becomes Big Daddy's final party!
This book involves the reader in the speed, chaos, fun, noise, tastes of Carnival. You work behind the hectic scenes of the bakery, rush across town carrying a cake through the crowds, join a society bash and still try to figure out who killed Big Daddy.
At the satisfying conclusion, there are luscious recipes to share and try out at your home. A great read during any season.
The story unfolds at a party hosted by Rita (she was somewhat appointed to be the hostess)and one of her guests is murdered, a blow-hard by the name of Big Daddy Boudreaux. Of course it turns out that in a round about way, Rita's uncle Nestor winds up getting the blame. Of course he did not do it and thus the story of how Rita finds out who did is the main theme. There is a bit of vulgarity in wording and also situations (mainly sexual) which is not my favorite read, but the fact that I could not figure out ahead of time who did it make this book a fairly good one for me. I am not too fond of stories set in New Orleans either but for this one book (which will probably be the only one in the series I read), it was a pleasant diversion.
