In the middle of the biggest party of Madeline's catering career, the host drops over, dead. Bruno Huntley had no shortage of enemies, including his own family. But Madeline's business partner and best friend, Wesley, is the police's prime suspect. Knowing that Wesley could never murder a man, even Bruno, she starts nosing around to find the real killer. But everywhere she turns, she just gets more questions. Can she stay alive long enough to unravel the personal and professional secrets and clear Wes?
This is a truly wonderful book. The plotting is superb, with never a dull moment and some surprising twists. The characters are well rounded and truly come alive. On top of this are an observer's view of Hollywood and a wonderful sense of humor. After finishing this book, I immediately went out and bought the rest of the series.
This is a must read. I look forward to many more adventures with Madeline, Wesley, and their friends.

Madeline Bean, caterer to Hollywood's most beautiful people, stumbles onto murder when the obnoxious Bruno Huntley is poisoned at his own over-the-top, star-studded Halloween bash. Madeline is truly delightful, and so is her supporting cast. Lots of suspects, numerous surprises, and writing full of wit and humor make this one of my favorite mysteries in a long time. I eagerly await Madeline's next adventure. Jerrilyn Farmer is a major new talent!!!

The first book in the Madeline Bean series is simply great. The characters are extremely likable, and the plot is interesting and fun. The story flows smoothly, making it hard to put the book down. I can't wait for the next entry in this sure-to-be-a-hit series.
