“Not only will cozy readers be dazzled by the luxury homes, rare antiques, and killer cuisine in the Hamptons Home & Garden mysteries, but they’ll also find a new favorite sleuth in interior designer Meg Barrett.” —Ellery Adams, New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author
Tensions are high on the eve of the grand opening of Privé, an exclusive gourmet dining club that interior designer Meg Barrett played a large part in decorating. With just the well-heeled owners, the kitchen staff, and Meg gathered for the pre-opening feast, it seems that everyone in the small group is airing their grievances, with their most venomous attacks directed at the notorious sous chef. But it still comes as a shock when the young woman is found dead the following morning, and Meg knows she’ll have to go into sleuthing mode to discover who had murder slated for the main course.
The most obvious suspect is the bitter winery owner next door, who’d been forced to sell her family’s French farmhouse to the owners of the dining club. But rumors are swirling of an affair between the victim and one of the owners, and clues begin to surface suggesting that the young woman was holding something over the owners’ heads. With the Hamptons elite closing ranks, Meg begins to think she may be out of her depth—and next on the killer’s list—because money can make for a powerful motive, and there are some secrets a person will kill to protect . . .
Includes tantalizing recipes and classic vintage decorating tips!
