WHAT IT'S ABOUT:
Hairstylist Marla Shore volunteers for Taste of the World, a
fund-raiser sponsored by Ocean Guard. It’s a decision she soon regrets.
First Chef Pierre's rum-soaked Bananas Foster goes up in flames, making
her wonder if sabotage caused the incident. Her suspicions deepen as
more chefs drop off the roster and Ocean Guard's attorney is murdered.
Does the lawyer’s death relate to an estate being managed by the group?
If their gala fails, this property will fall into the hands of a
Marla's friend, dashingly handsome Detective Dalton
Vail, believes the culprit might be one of Ocean Guard's esteemed board
members. She determines to help him untangle the clues. With a killer on
the loose, Marla has a lot more to worry about than which canapés her
chefs should serve. She’d better comb through the knot of suspects and
catch the saboteur before he strikes again.
With her witty style
and flair for local color, Nancy J. Cohen has created another page
turner that will leave readers eager for their next appointment with
sassy salon owner Marla Shore.
