The premise: Josh hijacks unsuspecting grocery shoppers and prepares them gourmet dinners. Everything’s going great - until one shopper drops dead.
With the cameras on him from the beginning, Josh is obviously innocent, but Chloe wonders: Was it one of Josh’s competitors? Or the deceased’s husband? Or someone on the crew?Sifting through suspects, Chloe deals with wedding chaos and Josh’s erratic behavior. She’ll have to balance her plate while trying to catch a food felon.
I bought this book because I enjoyed the first 3 books in the series. They were funny, had recipes and involved a murder mystery. In this book, the mystery took a backseat to everything that happened. Chloe solves the murder but only because she overhears someone's conversation. This was more chick lit than a murder mystery. I'll read the next book, only because this one ended in a cliffhanger.
