About this title


Hairstylist Marla Shore volunteers for Taste of the World, a fund-raiser sponsored by Ocean Guard. It's a decision she soon regrets. First Chef Pierre's rum-soaked Bananas Foster goes up in flames, making her wonder if sabotage caused the incident. Her suspicions deepen as more chefs drop off the roster and Ocean Guard's attorney is murdered. Does the lawyer's death relate to an estate being managed by the group? If their gala fails, this property will fall into the hands of a mysterious heir.
Marla's friend, dashingly handsome Detective Dalton Vail, believes the culprit might be one of Ocean Guard's esteemed board members. She determines to help him untangle the clues. With a killer on the loose, Marla has a lot more to worry about than which canapés her chefs should serve. She'd better comb through the knot of suspects and catch the saboteur before he strikes again.
With her witty style and flair for local color, Nancy J. Cohen has created another page-turner that will leave readers eager for their next appointment with sassy salon owner Marla Shore.

From the Author:

Research for this book involved one of my favorite pastimes: eating. Between dining at a well-known Fort Lauderdale Moroccan restaurant and a trip to the Bahamas, I sampled many delicious menus. Touring Bonnet House in Fort Lauderdale provided hours of pleasure as I studied the mangrove habitat and tropical vegetation on this magnificent estate. An interview with a funeral director and an exhibition of Samoan fire knives rounded out my search for information. Along the way, I learned about biomedical waste disposal and Pre-Need Plans. I like to learn something new with each book, and I hope you'll find these topics as fascinating as I did. Continuing Marla's relationship with Detective Dalton Vail was the personal thrust of the story. She meets Vail's daughter Brianna and things get more complicated from there, especially when Marla is also attracted to a handsome accountant. See what happens by reading the book!
