    Simmer Down is as yummy as a brownie straight from the oven!

    How do you spell fun? S-i-m-m-e-r D-o-w-n! The 2nd installment in the delightful Gourmet Girl series is even zanier than the first. Conant~Park & Conant are more in sync & @ ease w/ their hilarious heroine Chloe. Let me tell you, friends, she is definitely full of energy. Spending time w/ Chloe is like hanging out w/ your bestie. I do my best not to sip anything while flipping the pages for fear of ruining the book... just a lil' warning ; ).

    Simmer Down is as yummy as a brownie straight from the oven. It is a fast-paced read filled w/ hijinks. I just lose myself in the pages & consider the Gourmet Girl series one of my all time favorite comfort reads.

    I am a moody reader & when I just can't find something to whet my appetite, I reach for a Gourmet Girl Mystery. I just adore Chloe.


    Simmer Down is an animated adventure bubbling w/ humor, charm & straight out screwball comedy. You will bolt from your seat as soon as the last page is read to devour the next whimsical stew Chloe has gotten herself into.

    Chloe is a well developed protagonist. Where this mother & daughter team shine is in creating engaging characters. Every character is entertaining, witty & just riotous. From the most charismatic cast member to the most unruly, these ladies keep you turning the pages.

    What this duo does best is endear Chloe to the readers, foibles & all. Chloe is not your "cookie cutter" heroine, you know, all pulled together & just waiting for a body to "appear". No, she's authentic, appealing, intelligent, unassuming, self-conscious, whimsical, vacillating & exposed. She is me, she is you ~ she is every woman riding this wave we call life.

    The writing is smooth, the witticism skillfully crafted & Josh... well decadent!

    I think they are the perfect recipe like REESE'S PEANUT BUTTER CUPS!

    When I first read Steamed, I thought Lindsay Lohan would make an excellent Chloe but unfortunately, she would be more of a hindrance & I want to see this series thrive on the screen.

    Isla Fisher would make one fantastic Chloe on the big screen but if Lifetime or Hallmark did a TV verison, Amy Davidson has it hands down!

    Great culinary cozy

    Chloe Carter's boyfriend, Josh Driscoll, is the chef at the new restaurant Simmer. At a fund-raiser featuring samples of the Simmer's cuisine, which is to open on New Year's Eve, Oliver Kipper, part owner of trendy night clubs in Boston, is found murdered. He was bludgeoned to death with Josh's professional-grade, state-of-the-art food processor named Robocoupe. Josh's ex-girlfriend and Chloe's ex-boyfriend have shown up at this event. Oh that Chloe wishes she could pin this murder on his ex. Chloe decides to investigate and soon worries that her boss Naomi did the deed, especially once she discovers he was a terrible flirt. Did he put moves on the wrong person? Did his wife know? This is the 2nd in this delightful new cozy series. I can't wait for number 3. It is a light, easy read. Chloe is such a fun character. I really enjoy all her escapades, especially with men. Josh is a fabulous character. Plus the recipes are to die for. Chloe's work at the Boston Organization Against Sexual and Other Harrassment in the Workplace and her studies in social work really help round her out and add to the ambiance of this great series. The various characters she comes in contact with provide a plethora of suspects and hilarious antics. I highly recommend this book and series.
