Riassunto: In the tradition of Diane Mott Davidson, Elisabeth Bastion gives us a delightful new culinary mystery and a wonderful new amateur sleuth, Lucille Anderson. Lucille has just been handed the special assignment of her life - the New York PR agency she works for is sending her to London. Her job is to add American ideas to the launch campaign for Sweet Whippo, a new, totally synthetic product designed to replace sugar, fat, salt, and calories. Instead, she finds herself the target of a vicious hate campaign. As soon as she sets down in England, her arrival is marked by several odd events - first food poisoning, then threatening notes and even a stalker. When the London office test kitchen supervisor dies from a fall, Lucille commits herself to proving it wasn't an accident. As she gets closer to solving the murder, she discovers her list of four suspects includes her own lover. Lucille will have to stay one step ahead of a determined, cunning killer, or she just might find her own head on the chopping block.
Elisabeth Bastion lives in East Hampton on Long Island and England.
Although it is aimed at the "foodie" crowd, Bastion's debut will appeal to a broad range of readers--even those hesitant to set foot in the kitchen. Relying on character instead of recipes, the novel stars fortysomething Lucille Anderson, who makes a bold move when she leaves her New York PR agency and her dull boyfriend to work on the "Sweet Whippo" food account in the firm's London office. A delicious combination of tough and vulnerable, Lucy wins over almost everyone, from her resentful and paranoid new British colleagues to her new love interest, handsome Braxton Clark. When the glamorous Fiona, test-kitchen supervisor, is killed, Lucy begins to investigate the supposed "accident"--and finds herself the target of malicious letters warning her to stop snooping. London scenery and Lucy's romance are pleasant plot accoutrements, and Bastion's British-versus-American chef competition comically mimics Iron Chef and other cable cooking shows. A fun and flavorful outing that will leave readers requesting seconds. Jenny McLarin
