Book Review: Pie à la Murder

In this cosy, local celebrity chef Della Carmichael gets a surprise when her boyfriend tells her that he has an 18-year-old daughter.  Although they've been dating for quite awhile, this is a part of his life he has kept secret.  And he's telling Della this because his daughter is coming for a visit.

However, Celeste (Nicholas' daughter) arrives to Hollywood with dreams of being an actor.  When she meets a photographer who promises to do some publicity pictures for her, Nicholas sees that some of them went too far and flies into a rage.  Days later, he is found standing over the photog's dead body.

Della springs into action as soon as she realises that the police have little to go on other than looking at her boyfriend as their prime suspect.  How can she prove him innocent between helping run a store, teaching cooking classes, and working on her show?
