Steamed Summary

Chloe Carter's Internet date commits the ultimate gastronomic faux pas: He dies before dessert.

Ever in search of the perfect meal - and the perfect man - 20-something grad student and food connoisseur Chloe Carter draws the line at speed dating. But when the Massachusetts native reluctantly signs up for Back Bay Dates, she's soon communicating with a guy after her own heart.

According to his online bio, DinnerDude is Eric Rafferty, a blond, six-foot foodie. They meet at a five-star restaurant where everyone seems to know Eric, and he and Chloe are given the celebrity treatment. But their first date turns out to be their last: Before Chloe can say crème brûlée, Eric is found in the men's room, fatally stabbed in the neck. Suddenly, at the center of an investigation into the life of a man she barely knew, Chloe plunges into the cutthroat world of trendy restaurants. Her romantic life picks up again when she meets sexy chef Josh Driscoll - who's also the prime suspect in Eric's murder.

This audiobook features mouth-watering recipes sure to satisfy more than just your appetite for crime. Steamed is the first book in the Gourmet Girl Mysteries, but you may enjoy listening to the series in any order.

    Having an executive chef boyfriend guarantees Chloe Carter the best table at Simmer, Boston's hottest new restaurant, any night of the week. But the Back Bay foodie's incredible comped dinners are usually enjoyed without Josh, whose pressure-cooker job has taken over his life. The same can't be said of Leandra, the pretty blond Simmer server whose body was just found in a seafood delivery truck. The truck belongs to Owen, the fiancé of Chloe's best friend, Adrianna. And Owen has no alibi for the night Leandra was strangled with her apron strings and dumped in his truck.

    Chloe leaps from the frying pan into the fire when she arrives for a meeting with Digger, one of Josh's friends and a rival chef, and discovers a dead body instead. Digger died of smoke inhalation from a blaze that started in his kitchen.
