About the Author
Shawn Reilly Simmons is the author of The Red Carpet Catering Mysteries featuring Penelope Sutherland, an on-set movie caterer, and of the short story "A Gathering of Great Detectives" appearing in the upcoming Malice Domestic Anthology: Murder Most Conventional. Shawn was born in Indiana, grew up in Florida, and began her professional career in New York City as a sales executive after graduating from the University of Maryland with a BA in English. Since then Shawn has worked as a book store manager, fiction editor, convention organizer, wine consultant and caterer. She has been on the Board of Directors of Malice Domestic since 2003, and is a founding member of The Dames of Detection. Cooking behind the scenes on movie sets perfectly combined two of her great loves, movies and food, and provides the inspiration for her series.

Secondly, and this is the most important. Simmons Red Carpet Series has a good premise. I wish the Publisher had spent time editing this book. A developmental editor would have had the writer move the catering business to Florida. It's become a sad day when a writer who has spent countless hours putting together a story isn't extended the courtesy of an editor to clean up sentence structure, repetition of verbs, the dialog between two people (unnecessary to keep repeating names), to continuity throughout the story. Writers' write, editors clean up.
Things are going well until two of Penelope's part-time local servers (two teenagers) come up missing after a weekend of partying. Suspicion falls on Penelope's mentor and culinary teacher from back in the day. Because of some past accusations against the teacher, Penelope isn't sure of whether or not he is innocent. She starts looking into the matter to clear up in her mind whether or not she believes his protestations of innocence.
I enjoyed reading this book and the series as well. I do recommend that you start with the first book as it helps explains the background of the characters and their relationships.
