"The Red Carpet Catering series delivers a buffet of appealing characters, irresistible movie-industry details, and tantalizing plot twists. As delicious as a gourmet meal-and leaves you hungry for more!" - Susan O'Brien, Agatha Award-Nominated Author of Finding Sky"Movie lovers, this is your book! Engaging and high-spirited, Penelope Sutherland never expected that catering for the cast and crew of a top flight movie would lead to...murder. Great fun." - Terrie Farley Moran, Agatha Award-Winning Author of Caught Read-Handed"The writing is fun, quirky and engaging. The character development between the lead character and her love interest is well done and believable. This book has several of my favorite things at the forefront: movies, murder, and food prep." - Goodreads "[Simmons] is well-versed in her setting and she is able to keep the reader in suspense." - Marianna Heusler, Edgar-Nominated Author "Once in a while an author will come along who has a fresh voice; one who can take a tired genre and make it seem new again. Such is Ms. Simmons." - Any Good BookPenelope's life revolves around cooking and keeping her Red Carpet Catering business afloat, and she's just landed a hearty new job for her and her staff.

With her relationship as sturdy as a soup sandwich and her own life being threatened, it's up to Penelope to find the truth before anyone else is eighty-sixed.Related subjects include: women sleuths, cozy mysteries, amateur sleuth books, murder mysteries, whodunit mysteries (whodunnit), book club recommendations, culinary mysteries.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast paced cozy mystery Characters work well together in this fast paced cozy mystery. Catering and movie making take backstage to sleuthing. Penelope Sutherland's latest catering job's movie set isn't a pleasant place to work - cooking in a windowless basement in an empty hotel awaiting renovations. While Arlena's latest diet to gain 25 lbs is a challenge for Penelope as her personal chef, it is boyfriend Joey's relationship that has Penny torn up. The Madison family treat Penny like family but their acting careers create another mystery for Penny to investigate when Max is arrested for the murder of his fellow housemate, model Christina Alves, after an all night party, The subject of immigrant children sold into slavery in the US is a disturbing topic discussed in this story that is offset by the joy in Penny's relationship with Joey.
