Publisher's Summary

Being an undercover poison taster for the rich and famous is hard enough without being dragged into clearing the name of your former nemesis.... Especially when you think he might be guilty.   

To make matters worse, Izzy and her elderly accomplice aren't the only ones digging into the murder case, and the other parties are a whole lot more dangerous. And if her old nemesis didn't do it, then the real killer won't appreciate their interference.   

Throw it all together with a client from high-society hell (the same world the murder victim is from), the challenges of a new romantic relationship, and plenty of snark, poison, vengeance, and firebombs, and Izzy had better watch her back!

Happy Holidays

The Taste Society is a crazy job but intriguing. This book is funny and suspenseful with romance thrown in the mix. There are quirky and likable characters. Oliver, Izzy’s roommate who has flown home for the holidays. Etta who has very unusual skill to aid in investigations. Conner who is more 'by the book' while Izzy follows her gut.

Izzy’s Taste job begins the day after Christmas. She is protecting a socialite client, Vanessa. There will be a charity photo shoot and Izzy must ensure that Vanessa does not have an unexpected illness or death.

The murder is closer to home for Izzy. Mr. Black is the prime suspect in a murder. Mr. Black was introduced in book 1. He worked for Platypus Lending. It is the respectable lending branch for the loan shark company that Izzy owed. Black and Etta became friends. Now Etta wants Izzy’s help to prove his innocence.

Conner’s family is introduced in this story. Mae, Conner’s mom, worked as a private investigator and Harper is sister is a mechanic. Conner will find that adding Izzy to the mix has just made him even more outnumbered.
The plot is fast-paced and suspenseful

Fresh!

Intriguing background and context for the main character. Solution of mystery somewhat predictable, but redeemed by quirky and likeable characters, human attributes and motive for murderer, and a solid performance. The series is fun and holding up well so far. I'll continue with it. For those who wish to avoid such things, I'll note that it is not gory or littered with a profusion of foul language

My least favorite of the series

I struggled with the story on this one. Although I seemed to like the main characters more, it felt like a chore for the author to get make it a seamless story.
