Four short stories laid out like a meal: appetizer, salad, entree and dessert. Recipes included...but this is NOT a recipe book. These are humorously dark tales of women pushed too far and men who get their just desserts.
OK, seriously, the characters were amazing. I rooted for the gals to give the guys what they had coming. The plots were twisted and what I thought would happen, didn't. Oh, the potato salad! *shiver*
Speaking of food, there are recipes at the beginning of each section! I'm definitely trying the cookie recipe with the kids. Rice Crispies in cookies? Yes, please! Why didn't I think of that?
This is a good read for anyone that likes suspense, murder and drama. As a bonus, you get ideas for your next meal ... if you can stomach it! :)
