(From the publisher):
Desiree Shapiro’s niece, Ellen, will soon be saying, “I do.” So Manhattan’s pudgiest P.I. teams up with Ellen’s future mother-in-law, eager to give the bride a truly memorable shower. And memorable, it is. After all, when a guest takes a few bites of her salad, then promptly keels over, it’s not something anyone present is likely to forget.
Naturally, being a dedicated foodie, Desiree knows plenty of “to die for” dishes, but a green salad isn’t one of them. And once she begins to look into the victim’s death—and life—Desiree is convinced she’s dealing with a homicide. And that a number of backbiting society ladies had every reason to want to scheming, man-hungry Bobbie Jean dead. Meanwhile, Desiree has a new love interest. But in her book, romance takes a back seat to murder. Especially when the police are perilously close to arresting an innocent woman for the crime.
