Clare’s been hired to create a gourmet coffee and dessert bar for a New York wedding to be held at the world-renowned Metropolitan Museum of Art. Famous chefs will be there, celebrities, members of the press, well-known politicians—so why isn’t she thrilled to have this chance to shine? Because the person tying the knot is Matteo Allegro, her ex-husband and current business partner. And while Clare has no plans to ever marry Matt again, she’s afraid he’s making a terrible mistake. 

The bride-to-be is Trend magazine editor Breanne Summour. Beautiful, wealthy, and sophisticated, the snarky tastemaker has never been a low-maintenance kind of gal, and now she’s in full-blown bridezilla mode. The only way that Clare can possibly deal with her is to put her misgivings aside and focus on business. But as a successful amateur sleuth, murder is Clare’s business too, and when fatal accidents begin befalling people close to Breanne, Clare becomes suspicious. Is someone trying to sabotage the wedding? To kill Breanne? 

Between persuading a sexy Italian sculptor into lending her a one-of-a-kind fountain and roasting some of the rarest coffee beans on Earth, Clare starts to investigate. But what she unveils, amid melted chocolate and steaming mochaccinos, may just get her burned …

    " I'm not finished with the book yet. However, I can say that I'm really enjoying it. It's fast paced with a lot of action and intrigue. My only slight complaint is that there seems to be very little action centered around Clare's baristas. I like the characters and miss having them injected into the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deb | 8/25/2013

    " I was a bit taken aback that she let Matteo get away, and Madame was less of a character in this one - in fact, Clare is much more of the main focus in the book. The recipes were not as appealing, either, but then I have never been a fan of italian cookies - except for the anise flavored ones! "

    " Fun. If you love food in your books like I do , check it out. "
