Preparing gourmet meals, learning from a famous chef and eating wonderful food, but not long after they arrive they notice all is not sweet at this resort.

This book came free with a set of Nancy Drew PC games I bought online, and I didn't really plan on reading it, but I was bored one day and read it anyway. I enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would! The characters were stereotypical and it was cheesy, but it was a quick, pleasant read on a rainy afternoon.

Nice quick read. Would not rate it very high though. The setting was a little boring and the plot too predictable.
