3 out of 5

I really didnt like this one as much as the first in the series. This one was choppier and the murder really seemed inconsequential.

Chloe has finally landed her dream man, Josh Driscol, but while preparing for the opening of his new restaurant a rival club owner is found dead. Of course there are too many suspects and the story twists in so many different directions that the reader doesnt understand what path the authors are trying to lead you down.

It was more like the writing team had no plan for this book and just kept going until they came to 300 pages and decided to stop. I sure hope the next one is better.

An ok book. Series is a bit light in the "mystery" department. Enjoyable to read about the restaurant and foods, though.

Being in the restaurant business can be hazardous to your health.

Chloe's witnessed murder before, but now it hits closer to home. Her new boyfriend, Josh, is preparing a menu for a new restaurant, which will open on New Year's Eve in Boston. Now that he has this great job lined up, Josh is no longer cooking for just two.

Trouble starts brewing at a fundraiser where Josh caters the party, previewing the new restaurant.

When a rival club owner turns up dead from a blow to the head with Josh's cooking tool, things start getting dicey. On the same night, Josh's ex-girlfriend appears. This, combined with the recent time apart, makes Chloe anxious. Can she solve the murder before the restaurant's opening night -- and save her personal life at the same time?

SIMMER DOWN, the follow-up to STEAMED, is for anyone who likes both food and mysteries. Indulge yourself with something scrumptious while reading this delicious mystery.
