TURN UP THE HEAT

Image of Turn Up the Heat (A Gourmet Girl Mystery)

This Gourmet Girl mystery doesn't
have the necessary ingredients to
make it a story worth sinking your teeth into. The murder victim is
despised by everyone, the sleuthing
is slow-paced and the suspense
is nonexistent. Put this one on the
back burner.

Chloe Carter leads a very busy life. She's finishing up her first year of grad school. Her boyfriend, Josh Driscoll, the executive chef of a new upscale restaurant, needs Chloe's support. And her best friend, Adrianna, is pregnant, miserable and wants Chloe's help dealing with her situation. To top it off, Chloe finds a waitress from Josh's restaurant murdered.

Chloe gets entangled in the murder investigation when Adrianna's fiance, Owen, becomes a person of interest in the murder. Chloe needs to clear Owen's name and stay out of trouble at the same time. Can life get any more complicated? (BERKLEY PRIME CRIME, Mar., 288 pp., $23.95)
