From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Gemma Halliday & Jennifer Fischetto...
When Charley Alexander signs herself, and gal-pal Elaine, up for a cooking class with renowned Chef Machado, she expects a little fun, food, and wine among friends. But what she gets instead are catty classmates, surprisingly simple recipes, and the shock of a lifetime when she finds the poisoned body of one of her fellow culinary students.
The poisoner has to be someone at the class, and Charley is determined to find out who. With the help of their private investigator friends at the Bond Agency, Charley and Elaine dig through an eclectic list of suspects, ticking them off one by one. But the closer they get to the truth, the more dangerous it becomes. And if they aren't careful, this may be their last meal!

A fun, quick read
I have read all of the books in the Jamie Bond series, and I love them. This novella does not disappoint. Each of the books focuses on a different Bond girl, and this shorter story focuses on one of the girls' mom. It was a fun take on the series. It was also a chance to get to know a little more about background characters. I thought it was a fun story with an interesting mystery.
An enjoyable short mystery to somewhat satisfy what's new in Jamie Bond's world. I was surprised to see her mom so involved but oh well, still a great cozy mystery.
