The idea of this first cozy by Peg Cochran is very practical and timely. Gigi runs a delectable gourmet diet food catering business where she prepares delicious whole fresh foods for her clients every meal. Unfortunately, someone used her delivery service to manage to murder one of her clients. Even though the death is deemed 'accidental', death of a customer is never a selling point for this type of service. The only reasonable thing GIgi feels she can do, is find out for herself what really happened.

Many characters in this story are centered around a local theater group. Overacting and huge temperaments prevail to make detecting difficult for Gigi. Tall, handsome Detective Mertz tempts Gigi to make friends, as does Carlo, who runs an Italian restaurant. Convincing people that someone is a murderer and it's not her, Gigi gets into many fascinating, and sometimes dangerous situations, but her whole business and beautiful new cottage will only remain hers if she can reveal the murderer. The only good result of all this seems to be Reg, the adorable dog of the murdered woman. Gigi adopts Reg and he becomes her 'buddy' and informal body guard.

Fun characters, yummy foods, an adorable dog, and a mysterious 'accident' makes this a great first read that left me with an appetite for more!!
