Product Description

From a #1 bestselling author:

A fresh and funny romantic mystery series about a witty, down-to-earth heroine with a job you've never seen before...

Isobel Avery is on her second assignment as an undercover poison taster for Los Angeles's rich and famous. And she's actually enjoying herself. Until her sweet, agoraphobic client mysteriously leaves the safety of his apartment and winds up dead.

When crucial evidence goes missing, investigator Connor Stiles will need Izzy's inside knowledge to help track down the killer. But despite three months of absence to make Connor's heart grow fonder, he doesn't seem pleased to be working with her again. The LAPD commander is even less pleased to have Izzy on the case since he considers her a suspect and, even worse, a mere civilian. To top it all off, her least favorite relative in the whole wide world drops by for an unexpected visit.

Meanwhile, the killer is destroying anything that might link back to them. Including Izzy if she's not careful.

In this fun-packed romantic sequel to Eat, Pray, Die, join Izzy as she learns where she stands with the enigmatic Connor and tries to put another bad guy behind bars.

Can't get enough of this series. Izzy is a great character, she has such a good heart and just keeps persevering no matter what life throws at her, and is dedicated to solving the cases she's involved in. On a side note, Connor is adorable, and the supporting cast are awesome too.

5.0 out of 5 stars You’ll laugh & won’t want to stop reading- Recommended! 29 August 2016

I very rarely write a review, but I wanted to because this is a great series.

The main character, Izzy, has a job tasting people’s food for poisons. She works for wealthy clients that believe someone wants them dead.

Even though Izzy’s job is unusual, one of the best parts of the book is how relatable she is. She’s likable and caring. Izzy loves espresso and curling up with her roommate’s cat, Meow. Her client is Earnest, a nice tech geek. It’s going well. But then Earnest is murdered. Izzy wants to find his killer. Is his death related to his ‘Busileaks’ whistleblower website? Who was Earnest going to expose next?

Connor is the investigating agent. It’s fun to see Connor and Izzy working together again. The same cast keeps us entertained. Oliver, her roommate, develops an unexpected love interest. Her neighbor, Etta, continues to make me laugh every time she’s on the page. Aunt Alice and her daughter, Henrietta, come for a visit, and expect to be entertained.

It’s enjoyable to see Connor and Izzy’s relationship develop. Connor shares more about himself. The Hunger Pains is a good mystery too. The killer is hard to predict. So if you want to laugh and read a suspenseful book, this is a good choice.

This is a stand alone book. You don’t have to read the first one, but I really recommend you do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another winner! 29 August 2016
By Bookgyrl - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It's almost 3 months after the events in book 1 and Isobel ('Izzy') is enjoying her second assignment as poison taster for the secret Taste Society. Her client is a very sweet man, Earnest Dunst, who hardly ever leaves his apartment and runs a website, Busileaks, which exposes companies. Izzy is shocked when she finds Earnest dead and is determined to find his killer.

Cue Connor, who investigates the case and whom she has not seen for 3 months. They have to cooperate with Commander Hunt of the LAPD. Besides Hunt threatening to throw her in jail for interfering, Izzy has to deal with her visiting aunt and cousin and the confusing signals Connor is giving her.

For me this is another winner. I love books like this, with a quirky heroine who is warm and loving and smart enough to puzzle a case and follow hunches. I hope the next one is published soon and there will be many more.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another enjoyable mystery in this series! 30 January 2017

Izzy survived her first job as a food taster, but only barely and only with a gunshot wound. Now she is 2 and a half months into her second assignment and feeling pretty good about life: she is paying off her debts, and she likes the computer nerd that she is safeguarding. But when she goes to work, her nerd is nowhere to be found. After a flurry of searching by her and the nerd's mom, she finally finds him--dead of a heroin overdose.
When the police decide that it may have been murder, she is rejoined by Connor--one of the society's official investigators--and then the search is on.
This novel is another enjoyable read. Izzy is surrounded by a posse of odd but likable friends, and Field winds in enough humor to keep the tone light, even when events are not light-hearted at all. Although a bit short on suspense when compared to the first book, this is still a solid, enjoyable read!
5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful series! 29 November 2016

This is such a great series. So many laughs and mystery. Izzy is sassy and sweet. The things that happened to her are crazy, but with the help of her friends and Connor she's ok.

When Izzy's client, Ernest, dies and she finds his body her heart breaks. This book picks up three months from where Eat, Pray, Die left off. Izzy has been working with Ernest since then. They become very close like brother and sister. With the help of Connor Izzy is determined to find out what happened to him. Even when LAPD Commander Hunt warns he will throw her in jail if she doesn't stay out of the case. Jerk!

So many wonderful characters in this series. Chelsea Field is a terrific author. Can't wait till January for the next book. Hoping for more romance between Izzy and Connor. That part of the story needs more growth. Love the rest of the book🙋

5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh, humorous and engaging 29 October 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on

I really enjoyed this book. The author has a fresh, humorous style, and keeps the reader engaged with the characters and the story. The main character, Izzy, has the unlikely job of being a food taster for the rich and famous, to detect possible poison in their food. This works well in setting up a lively tale. We get to know her characters a bit better in this, the second book in the series. Well worth the read!
