Event planner Sophie Winston is attending a board meeting of the charity A Healthy Meal at Gerrie Stansfield’s home when a man’s body is found on the floor in the dining room. He’s been stabbed to death, and Gerrie recognizes Russ Everett as a former employee of her family’s kitchen supply business. But why does he have a baseball cap labeled “Dinner at Home”? Before Sophie can mention that to the police, she’s receiving phone calls from the owner of Dinner at Home. Her delivery driver Irv hasn’t shown up, and Sophie and her best friend Nina agree to deliver that night. They also find Irv, knocked out in the van, bloody, and missing his cap. While Gerrie knows she’s on the top of the suspect list, she begs Sophie to look for the actual killer because she worries one of her adult sons might be involved. The investigation takes Sophie into the world of ghost kitchens, where businesses only deliver food, as well as deep into the Stansfield family’s shady past.
VERDICT With recipes, ghost kitchens, and family secrets, the follow-up to The Diva Says Cheesecake! will entertain fans of this long-running cozy mystery series.
