Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

In Conant-Park and Conant's cute fourth Gourmet Girl mystery to feature Chloe Carter (after 2008's Turn Up the Heat), Josh Driscoll, Chloe's chef boyfriend, unwittingly serves up some poisoned lamb on a Boston cable reality TV show, Chefly Yours. Both Josh and Chloe fall ill, but it's Francie, a randomly chosen shopper at the gourmet store Natural High, who eats too much of the digitalis-laced dish and doesn't recover. Was Francie the intended victim or just unlucky? Suspects range from Josh's fellow contestants competing for a new eight-part cooking show to some pranksters who may have taken a joke too far. Preparations for the wedding of Chloe's very pregnant best friend distract "social work's answer to Nancy Drew" from her sleuthing, but not for long. Recipes, some by pro chefs, round out this delectable chick lit cozy, which ends on an emotional cliffhanger for Chloe. (Feb.)

    what's cooking?

    i am tired of becoming invested in stories and charecters then the authors feel they can just break them up. why would chole not go to hawaii with josh and stay behind to help a newly married couple with a baby? it's called interferrence. and i find writers are just not talented enough to keep couples interesting. j.d. robb has done it with eve /rouke and still kept them fresh and interesting.if i wanted real life i would buy NON FICTION! we got robbed

    Chloe tags along while her boyfriend tapes a reality-cooking contest. The crew goes to the supermarket, picks a stranger, and then creates a meal in his/her kitchen. While Josh cooks up a superb meal - something goes very wrong.

    First, the contestant hates the meal, and with good reason as it's been poisoned. She dies soon afterwards and all those at the taping are suspected of murder.

    If there's one thing Chloe doesn't need right now on top of her normal life, planning her best friend's wedding, and trying to make time to see her busy chef boyfriend - it's solving a murder. Yet, she needs to solve this case before anything else can happen.

    This is the fourth book in the GOURMET GIRL MYSTERY series for this mother-daughter duo. FED UP is a cute food mystery served with a side of recipes.

    Mystery & Recipes In One

    Jessica Conant-Park and Susan Conant's fourth entry into the Gourmet Girl Mystery series throws a jaw-dropping cliffhanger into the cozy mystery. Newcomers to the series will find it easy to follow the storyline, while regular readers will love the new developments in Chloe Carter's life.

    With Chloe' best friend's wedding on the horizon, she's busy with wedding details, baby shower planning and keeping up her relationship with Chef Josh Driscoll. Josh is in the midst of a televised competition in which he helps random shoppers purchase groceries and then heads home to prepare a meal that everyone in the house will love.

    When Josh's dinner ends up killing the shopper's wife, Chloe opts to fit in some sleuthing to find out what really happened. She knows there is no way Josh would have intentionally added toxic herbs to a meal.

    This starts a story that I didn't find impossibly hard to pick out the killer, though I admit I wasn't sure why until later into the book. A number of scrumptious recipes are found in the back of the book. If I can find some red snapper on sale in the near future, I know exactly what I'll be making for dinner!

    Meanwhile, other twists that keep you on the edge of your seat. I am now incredibly anxious to find out what happens next. The ending will leave many people craving more!

    Adelicious entry to this mystery series

    Fed Up<BR/>Jessica Conant-Park and Susan Conant<BR/>Berkley, Feb 2009, $$23.95<BR/>ISBN: 9780425225981<BR/><BR/>Chloe Carter¿s boyfriend Josh is competing with two other chefs to win a slot on a new eight part TV cooking show. To win the contest he has to star in three episodes of Chefly Yours (as does his rivals) cooking meals for supermarket customers selected randomly by the show¿s producer. When the nine shows air, the audience will vote on who will star as the chef of the new series.<BR/><BR/>Josh has to cook meals for Leo the vegetarian and his wife Francie who is a meat eater. Challenged, by the herbivore-carnivore couple, Josh makes his selection and goes to their home to prepare their repast. While dining, Francie dies on camera; others who took bites of her meal get ill. Someone sprinkled the food with digitalis from the foxglove plant. In between coordinating her best friend¿s wedding and working for her parents while grad school is out for the summer, Chloe investigates the murder.<BR/><BR/>The latest ¿Gourmet Girl Mystery¿ (see TURN UP THE HEAT, SIMMER DOWN and STEAMED) is a delicious entry filled with action and plenty of humor. The whodunit is clever as there are many suspects who had opportunity and Chloe realizes what their motives are. When the killer is revealed this will make total sense to the reader as being obvious yet it is almost impossible to pick out the perp during the course of the story.. The spunky heroine is the obvious master chef keeping the story line focused while the strong support cast adds depth to a tasty amateur sleuth.<BR/><BR/>Harriet Klausner
