Chloe Carter’s Internet date commits the ultimate gastronomic faux pas: He dies before dessert

Ever in search of the perfect meal—and the perfect man—twenty-something grad student and food connoisseur Chloe Carter draws the line at speed dating. But when the Massachusetts native reluctantly signs up for Back Bay Dates, she’s soon communicating with a guy after her own heart. According to his online bio, DinnerDude is Eric Rafferty, a blond, six-foot foodie. They meet at a five-star restaurant where everyone seems to know Eric, and he and Chloe are given the celebrity treatment. But their first date turns out to be their last: Before Chloe can say crème brûlée, Eric is found in the men’s room, fatally stabbed in the neck.
 
Suddenly at the center of an investigation into the life of a man she barely knew, Chloe plunges into the cutthroat world of trendy restaurants. Her romantic life picks up again when she meets sexy chef Josh Driscoll—who’s also the prime suspect in Eric’s murder.

It’s a recipe for disaster when Chloe Carter takes a job working for a cookbook writer—and plunges into a sizzling stew of malice and murder
 
If you can’t take the heat . . .
 
Gourmet girl Chloe Carter is keeping busy with grad school and spoiling her best friend’s three-month-old son. Now, courtesy of Craigslist, she has a new job as assistant to cookbook author Kyle Boucher—a job that stirs up painful memories of her ex-boyfriend Josh, who chose the shimmering beaches of Hawaii over a life with her on the mean streets of Boston. The gig heats up when Boucher asks her to compile a book of recipes from Boston’s top chefs. Chloe leaps from the frying pan into the fire when she arrives for a meeting with Digger, one of Josh’s friends and a rival chef, and discovers a dead body instead.
 
Digger died of smoke inhalation from a blaze that started in his kitchen. Unable to believe that an executive chef would allow a grease fire to get so out of control, Chloe starts an unofficial search for the murderer. As if she didn’t have enough on her plate already, now Josh is back in town. Chloe must decide where her future truly lies, but as a killer prepares to strike again, the amateur detective will find herself racing against time to protect those nearest and dearest to her.
 
This ebook features mouth-watering recipes sure to satisfy more than just your appetite for crime.
