Casey, prep chef on a TV morning show, reels after catching her dentist boyfriend examining more than his hygienist’s teeth.

Sources of Angst
A flirtatious Irish chef; a shady agent who tries to get between Casey and her celeb-chef boss.

Weighty Issues
”I get my height from [my father] and, thank God, my ability to eat what I want and still be able to zip my jeans.”

Lowdown
Barr’s luscious culinary descriptions are the ultimate in food porn, but the lame thriller-lite subplot is hard to digest.
