Hayley Snow has finally begun to feel confident at her job as a writer and food critic for the Florida biweekly style magazine Key Zest, but she has yet to face the challenge of reporting a negative review for an established restaurant. Knowing how a poor review can financially devastate a restaurant, Hayley is guilt-ridden when she thinks of all of the hard labor and emotional investment a chef puts into his creations only to have it lambasted in print. However, three visits to Just Off Duval failed to show any improvement and leaves Hayley no choice but to write up a foreboding prediction of failure for the upscale new restaurant.
