ARC honest review for Henery Press via NetGalley.
The second book in the Red Carpet Catering Mystery series.
And this time Penelope and Arlena are on location on a small Florida island where Arlena is filming a period drama. And 2 island girls that have been working for Penny disappear. Is it one of the members of the film set? Penny’s old culinary tutor? Or is something more sinister going on?
Well plotted and written, with a great set of characters.
An enjoyable read.
Filming a movie on a sunny Florida beach may seem like working in paradise, but dealing with the brutal heat, a difficult director and a leading lady with a serious aversion to seafood makes for a challenging task for Penelope Sutherland and her Red Carpet Catering crew. After two girls go missing during a raucous beach party thrown by the movie’s director, the cast and crew fall out of favor with the Andrea Island locals.
When a flashy celebrity chef is accused of the crime, Penelope Sutherland steps in to help her former culinary school instructor find the truth. Surrounded by suspicious locals with a history all their own, Penelope uncovers clues from the past that reveal an undercurrent of evil amid the magnificent sandy beaches.
