February 24, 2014 | 2 Comments

Erica and her family happily anticipate Grandma Blanche’s eighty-first birthday celebration in the picturesque town of Florence, Oregon. But when the feisty matriarch, a savvy businesswoman, enlists Erica’s help in an investigation of her company, things quickly get sticky.

Before the investigation can begin, Blanche’s unexpected death leaves Erica with more questions than answers—and it is soon clear that Grandma’s passing was anything but natural: she was murdered.

When another relative becomes the next victim of someone with a taste for homicide, Erica uses her flair for cooking to butter up local law enforcement and gather clues. As she narrowly escapes becoming the third victim, Erica is more determined than ever to solve the case—before she bites off more than she can chew.
