This is the first product review freebie we're giving away. Please refer to the post just before this one on how to join the product review club to take advantage of this.
The authors of Chicklit mystery novels "Steamed" and "Simmer Down" have sent us a copy of each book that they would like you to review. They might be willing to throw in a couple more depending on how many of you are interested.
Here are the synopsis of each book:
Chloe Carter's dream boyfriend, Josh Driscoll, is prepping for the opening of Simmer, Boston's hottest new restaurant - which means her love life is being put on the back burner. Josh is too busy to be her own personal naked chef for a while...
But bigger problems are to come. 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.
Chloe would love to pin the murder on Josh's ex-girlfriend, who found the body... and who's also still after Josh's body. But Chloe's own boss at the Boston Organizations Against Sexual and Other Harassment in the Workplace could be a possibility, too. Word is, the murder victim was worse than your everyday flirt, and he just might have put the moves on the wrong woman. If that's the case, his wife had a motive, too, and Chloe has to check out her alibi.
By opening night at Simmer, the list of suspects is almost longer than th eline to get in. And Chloe is struggling to solve the crime before the final course is served....
Chloe Carter, food connoisseur and resilient survivor of failed romances, is forever on a quest for the perfect meal and the perfect man. Getting oth in one shot is irresistible. That's why Chloe (aka Gourmet-Girl) accepts a date with DinnerDude online. Too bad her fellow food lover i s just another cheap, pompous, well-fed bore. But there must be an easier way to run out on a tab than being stabbed to death in the men's room.
Talk about a rocky love life. Chloe's first date of the week is murdered - and her second is a sweet chef who'd be ideal if he wasn't the prime suspect. As the investigation plunges the amateur sleuth into the gourmet restaurant scene, she discovers a cutthroat world rife with killer competition, stormy love affairs, and a recipe for Baby Bok Choy Slaw that's to die for...
