Book description from GoodReads:

Identical twin sisters, over-the-hill flower child from Alaska, Goldie Silver and popular syndicated advice to the lovelorn columnist, Godiva Olivia DuBois, a wealthy Beverly Hills widow, take the reader on a zany romp through the glitzy world of TV chefs. Filled with twists and turns, clues and backfires, these ladies with a nose for trouble set out to track down the real killer when a murder occurs at the glitzy televised Gourmet Gladiator Tournament and Godiva’s boyfriend is a prime suspect. To complicate matters, they get lots of unwanted help from their 80 year old mother and uncle, both former vaudeville magicians who love to dress in disguise and go undercover. Will the Silver family be able to flush out the real killer or will they all wind up in really hot water?

My review – 4/5 Stars (originally posted on GoodReads on 2/28/17) 

I really enjoyed this mystery. It was fun.

The story centered around two TV cooking shows and a cooking contest (like Iron Chef America), with plenty of fun, crazy/zany characters that kept me entertained.

I loved the twin sisters and the interplay between them, and their adorable aunt and uncle (who made me laugh many times — definitely my favorite characters).

Many wonderful characters in this book.

I didn’t, however, find Godiva’s love interest very believable. He seemed to be a nice guy, just a bit boring for her, imo. I’ll be interested to see if he remains her beau in the next book.
