Sarah Blair gets an education in slicing and dicing when someone in culinary school serves up a main corpse in Wheaton, Alabama . . .
Between working as a law firm receptionist, reluctantly pitching in as co-owner of her twin sister’s restaurant, and caretaking for her regal Siamese RahRah and rescue dog Fluffy, Sarah has no time to enjoy life’s finer things. Divorced and sort-of dating, she’s considering going back to school. But as a somewhat competent sleuth, Sarah’s more suited for criminal justice than learning how many ways she can burn a meal.
Although she wouldn’t mind learning some knife skills from her sous chef, Grace Winston. An adjunct instructor who teaches cutlery expertise in cooking college, Grace is considering accepting an executive chef’s position offered by Jane Clark, Sarah’s business rival—and her late ex-husband’s lover. But Grace’s future lands in hot water when the school’s director is found dead with one of her knives in his back. To clear her friend’s name, Sarah must sharpen her own skills at uncovering an elusive killer . . .
Includes quick and easy recipes!
Sarah may not know her way around a recipe but she is quite involved in the restaurant community.
Her twin sister is a chef and Sarah has great friends among the food industry and culinary school.
This book combines the competitive nature of masters of their trade, the academic environment with its political and financial demands and a group of active senior residents of a retirement and care facility. Quite the diverse group but this author brings them all together and it all works.
A murder, an innocent person arrested, and a world of subplots keeps this story moving at a good pace.
Can Sarah bring a killer to justice before dessert is served?
