Chloe Carter is trying to make some dough (pun intended) while enjoying some culinary delights, yet she is not sure who has placed the chef on the menu for the restaurant's opening night. Can you guess the person that might have a strong motive for making the executive chef the main "dish" for murder? If you would like a well served murder, filled with suspense and intrigue, you are sure to delight in this novel.

I do not recommend this book. The protagonist is very immature and the story just doesn't hold up.

Good for foodies, fine if you like silly heroines who buy things like they will never have to pay for them. Or heroines who are conflicted with respect to their significant other.

The (probable) main character's unending thoughts might be of interest if she actually did any thinking.
