Gigi Fitzgarald has brought a new diet plan to Woodstone with her business Gigi's Gourmet De-lite. She makes 3 meals a day for her clients. With Martha Bernhardt, a restaurant reviewer, as her newest client she just knows her business is going to grow as her clients lose some inches. When Martha drops dead after eating one of Gigi's meals things just go nuts! Seems Martha had a peanut allergy and there were traces of peanut oil in her last meal.

Gigi know she didn't drizzle any peanut oil anywhere near Martha's meal so she needs to find out who did and fast before more of her clients start dropping like flies instead of dropping the pounds.

Dollycas's Thoughts
The author has created a wonderful mix of characters in a wonderful setting. Gigi has just enough spice to make her a woman to reckoned with and a heart that will have you rooting for her from the first chapter. Her friend Sienna is a great sounding board and Detective Mertz was really growing me and Gigi too. The puppy on the cover is a lovable Westie that used to belong to Martha. Gigi wastes no time in agreeing to take in her new four legged friend.

As someone who is allergic to nuts this story his me on a personal level. Thankfully I have never had a severe reaction and watch what I eat so have not even had a minor flare up in years. But what a perfect way to commit a murder. Well almost perfect because the culprit does get caught.

A great debut for what I know is going to be a great series. There are even some of Gigi's de-lite-ful recipes to try and some dieting tips too!
