In this excellent second helping of the Hayley Powell series, you’ll get madcap adventures, including burning buses, angry ex-wives, young delinquents and a whole lot of good cooking. Hayley is just plain fun to be around and just when you think you’ve identified the killer, everything changes.

Newspaper columnist Hayley is over the moon when her favorite country singer, Wade Springer, comes to town to perform two charity concerts. When she wheedles her way into cooking breakfast for him, he asks her to be his personal chef during his stay. As they get closer, one of Wade’s unsavory roadies makes an unfriendly play for Hayley and ends up dead. Who hated Mickey Pritchett enough to put a bullet in him and then light the tour bus on fire? Maybe Hayley can figure this one out before her Blue Ribbon country fried chicken gets too cold. (KENSINGTON, Nov., 303 pp., $7.99)
