Your Satisfaction is Guaranteed:
It is the eve of City Tastes, Washington, D.C.'s gourmet gala featuring the delectable handiwork of the city's culinary stars. Renowned restaurant reviewer Chas Wheatley expects to fill her biting Washington Examinercolumn with reports of a sassy soupe en chamiseor a poor palourde en beignets. But when chef Lawrence Levain's heart suddenly stops the night before the event, everyone is quick to name his soaring cholesterol as the culprit. Except Chas, whose discriminating senses smell murder. Armed with her saber-sharp pen and critic's eye for things amiss, Chas circuits the restaurant scene, doling out biting reviews and delicious recipes, while probing into Lawrence's untimely demise. With a dollop of help from her loved ones at home and a soupconof advice form a secret admirer at work, Chas's tastebuds lead her down a dangerous trail of revenge and murder, where her next bite could be her last.
"...intriguingly different and readable...."
"[A] lively tale told with wit and high spirits. Chas's somewhat prickly and independent nature and her willingness to see the humorous side of any situation make her an entertaining sleuth, a heroine we want to spend time with a a gourmet we'd be happy to join for dinner."
Jacqueline Deval, Washington Post Book World, 05/18/1997
