From #1 Amazon, New York Times & USA Today bestselling author, Gemma Halliday comes a cozy mystery full of fab food, murderous mobsters, and lots of laughter and love in Lake Tahoe!
When Tessie King inherited the Royal Palace Hotel, Lake Tahoe's biggest resort, she inherited a cranky board of directors along with it. A board that is demanding higher revenues, or Tessie's out. Faced with the possibility of losing her father's legacy, Tessie turns to her staff to help her come up with a plan: film the season finale of Battle Buffet
, the hottest cooking competition show on TV, at the resort. It's a scheme sure to bring in the big bucks!
But it also brings big trouble. When one of the casino's wealthiest clients is found dead on the gaming floor, and the killer comes up incognito on the security footage, everyone is a suspect-from the television crew to the blue haired retirees at the slots. Tessie teams up with her stepmother-turned-BFF and a hot snowboarding champ in a race against the clock to repair the casino's reputation, dodge mob accusations from the enticing FBI agent on the case, and track down a killer before any more of her big spenders end up sleeping with the fishes.
