Here�s what Marie Celine�s delightful (and delicious) novel DISHING UP DEATH is all about!

Kitty Karlyle is a young and pretty gourmet pet chef. But she does not prepare meals for the rich and famous. Oh, no, Kitty prepares meals for the pampered pets of the rich and famous. Kitty lives in L.A. Where else? A graduate of a top culinary arts school, Kitty�s passion for food and pets has led her to create her own business catering to the elite and demanding clientele of the City of Angels and Angles. Business is off to a slow but successful start when one of her clients� owners, fading rock star, Rich Evan, is found face down in one of Kitty�s creations. Okay, it was the Benny Had A Little Lamb.

Did we mention Rich was dead? Yep, deader than a canned mackerel. Seems the poor fellow has been poisoned. And Kitty is looking pretty good for the crime. With the assistance of her best friend, and an annoying L.A. County detective who can�t make up his mind whether to arrest Kitty or marry her, Kitty must clear her name and save her business or her next job just may be working that long cafeteria line in the Big House.

Editorial Reviews

I Love A Mystery - Senior Reviewer
DISHING UP DEATH is a rollicking tale meant to be fun to read -- and it succeeds. Celine has a wry sense of humor which peeks through every so often in this romp through Los Angeles' more expensive neighborhoods.

Midwest Book Review - James Cox
�What could be more "Hollywood" than a gourmet pet chef? Marie Celine, who loves animals and food, has seen fit to include both in her first mystery. While we don't get the old Valley Girl language per se, Celine still manages to create the aura of Hollywood to perfection. Kitty Karlyle has managed to begin a business post chef school by cooking delicious meals, complete with cute little recipe cards, for a few select animals in the Hollywood area. Naturally the pet owners all have th
Library Journal
Pet chef Kitty serves "killer" meals to the pampered canines of upscale L.A. residents: braised lamb, steak and egg burrito, salmon and cheese omelette,etc. Unfortunately, a drugged up ex-rock star eats his pet's meal by mistake and dies of poisoning. Kitty, aghast and under suspicion by the police, works to clear her name with help from best friend Velma. Light-weight prose, a humorous approach, and idiosyncratic LA characters transform this series start into a real treat.
