In need of a change, Jenna Hart leaves the high-pressure world of advertising to help her aunt, Vera, open a culinary bookshop and cafĂ©. Back with her family in Crystal Cove, California, Jenna seems to have all the right ingredients for a fresh start—until someone adds a dash of murder.

As a marketing expert, Jenna wants to make sure the grand opening of the Cookbook Nook draws a crowd, and no one is better at getting attention than her old college roommate, celebrity chef Desiree Divine. But when Desiree arrives in quiet Crystal Cove to do a cookbook signing, the diva stirs up more trouble than business…especially when she turns up dead.

Known for stealing husbands and burning bridges, Desiree left behind plenty of suspects—including Jenna. Though the celebrity’s life always appeared to be an open book, Jenna will have to read between the lines in order to clear her name, and catch a killer before another body is served cold.

My Thoughts:

This book follows Jenna Hart whose opening a cookbook store with her Aunt.  She even recruited her old roommate Desiree Divine to help make her store opening great.  Of course Desiree stirs up trouble and finds herself dead and Jenna works to find out who killed her friend.  Jenna knows Desiree has made a lot off enemies from the women she has wronged by stealing their husbands. Could one of these women have killed Desiree and why?

I enjoyed this story and meeting the people of Crystal Cove and seeing how they interact with Jenna who is trying to figure out who killed her friend Desiree.  There are no shortage of options and Ms. Gerber really builds up the suspense of not knowing who the bad guy is whether it's male or female and why.  I really enjoyed watching it all play out and learning about all the different chracters!  Can't wait to see what is next for Ms Gerber.  Next up is:
