Book Review – Simmer Down by Jessica Conant-Park and Susan Conant

Title:  Simmer Down
Author:  Jessica Conant-Park and Susan Conant
ISBN:  9780425213858
Publisher:  Berkley Prime Crime

Synopsis:  Chloe Carter’s boyfriend, Josh Driscoll, is prepping for the opening of Simmer, Boston’s hottest new restaurant. But at a fund-raiser featuring samples of Josh’s cuisine, a trendy club owner is found bludgeoned to death-by Josh’s state-of-the-art, professional-grade food processor, the ominously-named Robocoupe.

By opening night at Simmer, the list of suspects is almost longer than the line to get in. And Chloe is struggling to solve the crime before the final course is served.

My thoughts:  This is book #2 in the Gourmet Girl series (I just wrote a review on the first one, so check it out).  Again, I really like this series.  Chloe and her chef beau, Jeff, are busy preparing for the New Year’s opening of a new restaurant, Simmer, when the body of a Boston club owner is found dead. 

I love the characters in these books.  Chloe is hilarious . . . ok, I look a little funny laughing out loud by myself when I am reading these books, but her comments are too funny not to crack up!  The other characters are quirky, unique, and just plain fun. 

These books are super fast, fun reads.  A great summer beach read!

 My Rating: : – )  : – )  : – )  : – )  Really liked it!  On to number 3

And remember,
Books Are Life,
