When Gretchen Darrow accepts a job on the set of a popular cooking show, she's unprepared for the dangerous intrigue that happens off camera. Amid the professional rivalries, soufflé-like egos, and secret trysts among cast & crew, a prominent young agent, Misty Allbright, dies at a network bash. With her death ruled a homicide, there is no shortage of questions: was the woman killed by a disgruntled client? Was she even the real target? Could Gretchen's boss--a celebrity chef who has become ridiculously clingy lately--have not only an insincere smile, but a murderous side as well?
Helping her piece together details of the confounding case is Rick Pellucci, the elusive firefighter Gretchen lusts after, who also happens to be the brother of one of the network's biggest stars. Before long, Gretchen and Rick are learning who Misty Allbright really was, uncovering more than they ever wanted to know about The Culinary Network, and also falling passionately in love...
