Love…with a side of murder
Celebrity chef Jordan Kelly wants to marry the love of his life, Tilly Danes. Unfortunately, the proposal isn’t going quiteas planned. For starters, the Culinary Channel just hired his ex-lover as their new chef-and now she’s been murdered.
Tilly might have a tiny problem with commitment, but she knows for a fact that Jordan is hiding something. Something big. And if he doesn’t spill it soon, their future happiness is definitely on the chopping block…
Someone at the Culinary Channel has an appetite for killing, and no one is safe. All this danger might just bring Jordan and Tilly’s relationship closer…if they can manage to survive.
Celebrity chefs Tilly Danes and Jordan Kelly are back in another murder mystery. Jordan is ready to settle down with Tilly, but their almost legendary ability to find dead bodies gets them drawn into consulting on another murder at the Culinary Channel. The deceased chef is Jordan’s ex, whom he never mentioned to Tilly and he’s not very excited about the investigating gig, particularly because they almost became victims the last time, but Tilly is all in. However, the killer has gotten a taste for murder and soon the bodies are dropping at a very alarming rate and all their sleuthing skills are required, especially as the killer’s sights are set on Tilly – again!
This installment of the series does not limit itself to the murder investigations. Tilly and Jordan’s relationship is front and center and we get to see how they manage their differences. Tilly has been very wary of commitment since her experience with her ex and her insecurities affect her ability to take the next step in her relationship with Jordan. Jordan’s lie of omission does not help, either. Further complicating issues is the arrival of her fourteen-year old daughter and her foster mother in New York. Tilly has a lot on her plate – her family, her relationship with Jordan and the investigation and she has some tough decisions to make. Will she make the right one(s)?
MURDER LOVE ON THE MENU is an interesting and humorous follow-up to Recipe for Murder Love and I really enjoyed it. The mystery was well-written and even though I guessed whodunnit halfway in, there was enough to keep me guessing. Any lover of romance and mystery will enjoy the combination of love, food and murder.
