Totally engrossing...I felt as though I was actually on a movie set. The author is well-versed in her setting and she is able to keep the reader in suspense. I can't wait for the second book in the series." - Marianna Heusler, Edgar-Nominated Author "With a likeable cast of characters and an inside look at the movie industry, this was an equally entertaining and engaging debut." - Dru's Book Musings Penelope Sutherland and her Red Carpet Catering company just got their big break as the on-set caterer for an upcoming blockbuster.
