|Gigi Fitzgerald arrives home to find
Ralph’s Pizza Truck in front of her house. This is not
something she ordered. Her Gigi’s Gourmet De-Lite clients
would not be pleased to see Gigi eating unhealthy food. After
all Gigi makes the best gourmet diet food around. Gigi is surprised
by her sister Pia who has just arrived to pay her a visit.
Pia already has a crush on Declan McQuaid – owner of
Declan’s Grille. This is the same Declan that makes
Gigi go weak in the knees. So it is not surprising that Gigi
doesn’t mention that she is going to be helping Declan
prep an engagement party the next day. When Gigi agrees to
help Declan, she ends up hurting the three closest to her.
Pia thinks Gigi is after Declan. Boyfriend Detective Mertz
is just plain jealous. Reg the Westie - hates not being with
his person. Happily, the party goes off without too much chaos.
After sharing a drink with Declan, Gigi heads to the parking
lot to get her car and go home. She finds a bundle of clothes.
Unfortunately, this bundle is attached to a very dead body.
When the police target Declan McQuaid as the prime suspect,
Pia begs Gigi to get involved. The host of the engagement
party, Bradley Simpson, has been murdered with an ice pick.
Said ice pick just happens to have Declan’s name on
it. Not only will Gigi be going against the wishes of her
boyfriend, Detective Mertz, but if she is not careful she
could end up in the deep freeze.
Things to ponder: Since Bradley’s wife was ill, why
didn’t he drive her home? Was the murderer a guest at
the engagement party? Where did Barbara’s pashmina end
up? Will Mertz get over his jealousy?
Once I started reading Iced To Death, my eyes stayed
right on those pages. I had to keep reading to find out whodunit.
There are plenty of plot twists to keep you guessing. The
author has thoughtfully included some yummy and healthy recipes.
So if you like your mystery filled with mouthwatering and
juicy details, then you should be reading Iced To Death.
