The surprises keep coming, and Toeller shows off an exuberant prose style throughout...a humorous tale for mystery lovers and foodies. -Kirkus Reviews

Who knew danger could be so delicious...

When celebrity chef Layne Stevens heads to San Francisco in search of "appetizers to die for," she finds them on her hotel room floor, next to a dead man. Assigned to investigate the case, FBI Special Agent Ryan Cooke has finger worthy salt and pepper hair, a scrumptious smile, and a voice like warm caramel. He's funny, and charming, and sexy as hell.

He's everything Layne shouldn't trust.

But the investigation plummets her into a deadly conspiracy that puts the people she loves at risk. To save them, she's forced to dive into the rotten underbelly of the deception with the sinfully yummy agent. And it may be too late before she figures out which is more dangerous...the conspiracy, or Special Agent Ryan Cooke.

About the Author

Carie Toeller is a world-renowned chef, a quantum physicist, a yoga master, an expert gardener, an elbow model and…oh, wait, this part isn’t supposed to be fiction.

The real Carie Toeller is a wife, mom, daughter, aunt, niece, cousin and friend with a passion for writing, reading, and real food. In no particular order. She lives in Northern California with her husband, two grocery-guzzling boys, and two oversized couch-lounging dogs. Her happy place is anywhere she can see, hear and smell the ocean. She has a proficiency for pairing organic wines with various potato dishes. She drives like a grandma with impaired vision in a red Dodge Charger named Fabio. And she brews her own kombucha. Seriously. True story.
