Editorial Reviews

Mother-daughter writing team Jessica Park and Susan Conant create a savory literary dish featuring equal parts chick lit, cozy, and cookbook. Performed by Kim McKean, previously a guest star on HBO's True Blood and ABC’s Private Practice, with the intonations and attitudes of a young woman hungry for both good food and love, this second of the Gourmet Girl Mysteries features Chloe Carter caught between love and exasperation as boyfriend Josh - the gourmet chef she saved from suspicion as a murder suspect in the first book - prepares to open Simmer, Boston’s trendiest restaurant. A rival, murdered in Josh’s kitchen, is certainly not a tasty ingredient in a relationship or a dining establishment and it falls to Chloe to rescue both.

Publisher's Summary

National best-selling author Elaine Viets says the Gourmet Girl mysteries have "all the right ingredients!" Chloe Carter's boyfriend, Josh Driscoll, is prepping for the opening of Simmer, Boston's hottest new restaurant. But at a fund-raiser featuring samples of Josh's cuisine, a trendy club owner is found bludgeoned to death - by Josh's state-of-the-art, professional-grade food processor, the ominously-named Robocoupe. By opening night at Simmer, the list of suspects is almost longer than the line to get in. And Chloe is struggling to solve the crime before the final course is served.

First book was passable, barely. This one is dreadful. Story, characters - blah. Narrator is horrible. Harsh, grating, little inflection. Am returning the others I have in the series. My advice? Skip this series entirely!

Simmering goodness

I enjoyed this book a great deal. Chole is a bit ditzy but she has a good heart. The mystery good and fast paced. Josh is adorable and adds a nice switch to the mystery aspect of the story. I would reccommend this to lovers of cozy mysteries.
