People somehow connected with food service who have homicide detective boyfriends, yet are always finding dead bodies and finding themselves allow with the murderer. It's called "culinary mystery, a sub-genre of the "cozy mystery" bit, and it drives me nuts.

The grand dame of the genre is Diane Mott Davidson. Her protagonist, Goldy Schultz, is a caterer who has someone murdered at every event she caters. Why do people keep using her?
