Overview

Identical twin sisters Goldie and Godiva take a wild and funny romp through the glitzy world of TV chefs - in search of a killer.

When Godiva Olivia DuBois, a.k.a. G.O.D. - an advice columnist from Beverly Hills - takes her niece Chili to a taping of the TV cooking show Flirting with Food she's selected from the audience as a food taster - and winds up in the hospital with food poisoning. Chili's mother, Goldie Silver, an 'aging hippie' living in Alaska, already sensed trouble through a psychic bond with her twin and immediately hopped on a plane to California.

Together these two wisecracking amateur sleuths try to solve the 'who's sabotaging the cooking show' mystery - with the help of their 80 year old mother Flossie and their Uncle Sterling - both former Vaudeville magicians.

Godiva develops a personal interest in handsome Chef Caesar Romano, the star of the show, who just happens to need a new assistant. Chili - already an experienced sous chef - is offered the position but her chance at stardom may be short-lived, because someone wants to eliminate Caesar, the reigning Gourmet Gladiator champion, from the upcoming competition.

When this year's glitzy tournament begins, rivalry quickly turns to murder. Romano is arrested for the crime, and the sisters set out to prove he's innocent. Can they stir up the cooking pot to flush out the real killer without getting into too much hot water?

Godiva, a Beverly Hills advice columnist, is poisoned on a TV cooking show. Her twin sister Goldie, an aging hippie from Alaska, quickly comes to town when her daughter Chili calls. Luckily Godiva recovers. Chef Romano from the cooking show begins seeing Godiva and explains that someone is sabotaging his show. He¿s sure it¿s Chef Biff Wellington. They¿ll be going head to head soon in the Gourmet Gladiator¿s Tournament. Chef Romano hires Chili as his new assistant. Godiva and Goldie watch the shows being taped out of concern for Chili. And they start looking into Chef Wellington to try to figure out if he really could be the person behind everything. When Chef Wellington is murdered, Chef Romano is the prime suspect. Godiva is sure he didn¿t do it and the twins set out to prove it and find out who did. This new series is off to a great start. The twins Godiva and Goldie are opposites, but when they work together, they¿re great sleuths. Throw in their quirky family and you¿ve got a real winner. Lots of twists and turns in the plot. I highly recommend this book.
