An “appealing heroine” and her chef boyfriend take on a case of murder by food processor in this Boston-set culinary mystery. Includes recipes! (Publishers Weekly)
After months between gigs, Chloe Carter’s dishy boyfriend, Josh Driscoll, has just landed his dream job: executive chef at Simmer, Boston’s soon-to-be hottest new restaurant. As Josh preps for a New Year’s Eve grand opening, Chloe, on winter break from grad school, hooks him up with Food for Thought, an annual charity fundraiser. It seems like a win-win—Simmer will give the dining public a tantalizing taste of things to come, and Josh will showcase his culinary talents—until murder makes a late addition to the menu.
It’s not the kind of publicity Chloe was looking for. Now wealthy club owner Oliver Kipper is dead, bludgeoned to death. The murder weapon is a state-of-the-art professional-grade food processor that, unfortunately, belongs to Josh. By opening night, the list of suspects, including Josh’s ex-girlfriends, is almost as long as the line to get into Simmer. Suddenly, Chloe’s risking her life to unmask a killer in a town where murder is becoming an acquired taste.
This ebook features mouth-watering recipes sure to satisfy more than just your appetite for crime.
