Light crime mystery. Follows CREME BRULEE, but you don't need to read the first book before starting this one.
Interesting to see how the two spouses see the save event from their own viewpoints, though.
From back cover: The CEO of a large pharmaceutical company has invited Carolyn Blue and her husband to the Big Apple for some serious wining and dining. But before she gets a chance to get a true taste of New York, the CEO is dead-keeled over after a heaping helping of pastrami. Talk about high cholesterol. Or was it high crime?
I'm disappointed in this book. I loved Crime Brulee and looked forward to reading this one. I tossed it aside after 40 pages. There were way too many VNW's (very nasty words) for me. I don't enjoy reading anything that is peppered with swearing, especially the F word. Really unnecessary in my opinion. Hope the next book is better.

Invited to New York with her husband, Carolyn is anxious to get a true taste of New York, but before she gets a chance to let the fun go to her head, her husband's prospective employer is dead -- keeled over after a heaping helping of pastrami.
