Bostonian foodie Chloe Carter is after the perfect meal and the perfect man—but death keeps finding her at the dinner table—in these three mysteries.
Grad student and food connoisseur Chloe Carter has had more success navigating the gastronomic treasures of Boston than finding love. And when murders are linked to upscale restaurants, she must use all her culinary and investigative expertise to solve the cases.
Steamed: Chloe meets Eric, her online match, at a five-star restaurant. But before dessert is even served he’s found dead in the men’s room. Suddenly, Chloe is plunged into the cutthroat world of trendy restaurants and murder investigations. Along the way she connects with a sexy chef—but is he Eric’s killer?
Simmer Down: Chloe’s dishy boyfriend, Josh Driscoll, has just landed his dream job as executive chef at the new restaurant Simmer. As he preps for a New Year’s Eve grand opening, Chloe hooks him up with Food for Thought, an annual charity fundraiser. Everything is going perfectly—until murder makes a late addition to the menu.
Turn Up the Heat: Having an executive chef boyfriend guarantees Chloe the best table at Simmer, Boston’s hottest new restaurant, any night of the week. So when the body of one of Simmer’s waitresses is found dead in a seafood delivery truck and expensive cooking equipment goes missing, Chloe is on the case.
