Where is this book?

Two years ago I ran into a book that i thought was interesting if not a bit shocking.

A woman (who has a young son) is hired to cater a prominent event (it may have been a wedding, but it may have also had something to do with the film crew that I believe was also involved in the plot somehow ...
