As with the first book, the main focus of the story is on the running of a restaurant and now a catering operation while Charlotte tries to find out what's going on because things just don't add up. And as usual, there's danger. She's got help from both Brendan, and vampire food critic, Anatole, both who would do anything for her. And of course, she's attracted to both.
There's plenty of humor and action along with the mystery and the story is an easy read even though the mystery of the who-done-it and why is nicely complicated and not something most would figure out.
An enjoyable paranormal cozy.
Despite her rebuke of Chet, Chef Caine was thrilled at the news. Her restaurant revenue had been barely keeping even with the expenses since its opening. Sometimes she and Chet had gone without to pay the help.
Later, Robert came into the kitchen to ask her to deal with a problem. A woman at table two had a coarse hair in her soup. She wanted the server fired.
Chef Caine didn't believe that the server had intently added the hair to the dish, but she tried to calm down the angry woman. Then Dylan entered the dining room and claimed that the woman was his cousin Pamela. He generated a large fireball and set off the sprinkler system.
In this novel, Charlotte Cordelia Caine is a natural human and the executive chef at Nightlife, a restaurant for Nightbloods and other night people. Her brother is the co-founder of the restaurant.
Chester Calvin Caine is Charlotte's brother. Chet is also a vampire.
Brandon Maddox is a security specialist running his own company. He is a scion of a large witch clan. He is Caine's sort of, kind of, boyfriend.
Anatole Sevarin is also a vampire. He writes the dining column for Circulation, the number one paranormal publication in the New York City. He wants to be Caine's lover.Read more ›
When celeb chef Oscar Simmons quits working a marriage gala, event planner Felicity Garnett begs Charlotte to cater the multispecies wedding of the decade between witch Deanna Alden and Gabriel Renault the Nightblood allegedly from Paris (not Hoboken). Charlotte accepts the job that could make the restaurant a success. Soon afterward, Oscar is dead from what appears to be a heart attack and the groom's side has begun to disappear. Charlotte realizes her boyfriend Brendan Maddox is related to the Alden family and everything turns sour when someone steals the anti- vampire weapon the Arall. Charlotte seeks the purloined object before she serves rations to the combatants.
The second "Vampire Chef" mystery is a delightful amateur sleuth fantasy that is much darker than its predecessor (A Taste of the Nightlife). The paranormal comes across as normal; especially enhancing that sense of "reality" is the heroine's egalitarian attitude as she believes all species are equal with each having the good, the bad and the ugly. Readers who want something different will enjoy stopping for something red served up by Sarah Zettel at Nightlife.
