Publisher's Summary

A murdered guest at her first catering event? Definitely not good for DeeDee’s fledgling business. So much for post-divorce new beginnings. 

When Lisa, a well-known Seattle art gallery owner, is murdered at the event, shock waves ripple through the local Seattle art community. 

The following day, newspaper reports indicate the cause of death might have been poison in the food DeeDee served. She has to find the killer to save her business and her new life. 

Join DeeDee, Jake, a private investigator she's developed a relationship with, and Balto, her husky dog as they search for the murderer. 

This is the first book in the Northwest Cozy Mystery Series by a two-time USA Today best-selling author.

New Start

I received a free code for this book.
I have read and listened to a fair number of Dianne's books now, and have not been disappointed with any of them. This is another great read.

Excellent

The setting sounds great, the people are interesting and willing to help her with her new business. DeeDee buys a dog to keep her company, which also might led to more with the previous owner, Jake..The list of suspect wanting to get even with someone who is hurting them in the art world,is long. DeeDee and with Jake as a private investigated,together to solve a murder, and time together. A nice cozy story that all will enjoy reading.

New job, new life, new murder

I enjoyed this book. This is the first book in a new series, I must admit I have heard later books so it was fun to go back and see how it all came about. The story starts with the murder and then goes back in time to explain why Dee Dee was catering the event (so all good background information for the series) and to give you motives and suspects as to why Lisa Sanders needed to die. I did work out the killer and how Dee Dee was going to work it out (a bit to obvious a clue) but it was still a lot of fun getting there. There is also a cute dog and likeable characters in the form of Dee Dee and Jake.
After her divorce and with her grown children having left the nest Dee Dee decides to start her life over by moving to her family home she inherited after her parents death, start a new catering business and get a dog. But things go wrong on her very first job and one of the guests is killed. It is quickly proved that her cooking wasn't the cause but Dee Dee fearing that the bad publicity of a death at her event would be bad for business, especially of such a famous art gallery owner, that she takes matters into her own hands and starts to investigate. Aided by her new dog Balto and the man who sold him to her, who is also a private investigator can they narrow down the suspects and find the killer?
The narrator was good and kept the story exciting and flowing nicely.
