“A buffet of appealing characters, irresistible movie-industry details, and tantalizing plot twists. As delicious as a gourmet meal” (Susan O’Brien, Agatha Award-nominated author of the Nicki Valentine Mysteries).
Penelope’s life revolves around cooking and keeping her Red Carpet Catering business afloat, and she’s just landed a hearty new job for her and her staff. Just when Penelope thinks life couldn’t be sweeter, a panicked late-night phone call from Max, her best friend’s brother, ends abruptly with shots fired on his end.
The next morning, a handsome model and club promoter turns up dead, and when the police serve up Max as their main suspect, Penelope risks it all to prove his innocence (and find him before the police do). With her relationship as sturdy as a soup sandwich and her own life being threatened, it’s up to Penelope to find the truth before anyone else is eighty-sixed.

“[Simmons] is well-versed in her setting and she is able to keep the reader in suspense.” —Marianna Heusler, Edgar–nominated author of No End to Trouble
