Overview

Local food and drink writer Haley Powell thinks she's done solving murders in scenic Bar Harbor, Maine. But when a taste of the South comes to New England, Haley's following another recipe for disaster. . .

As a single mom, Hayley Powell already has a full plate—she's got deadlines to make and a teenage daughter with eyes for an aspiring singer-songwriter. But when country music superstar Wade Springer rolls into town, Hayley spies an irresistible side gig: personal chef to her all-American idol. After he tries her home cooking, Wade's so impressed that he hires her on the spot—and invites her to dine with him alone.

Hayley and Wade are hitting all the right notes. . .until a body turns up. Wade's tour bus was torched overnight and a roadie named Mickey Pritchett came out well-done. But the real cause of death isn't barbecue: Mickey was shot, his mouth stuffed with one of Hayley's trademark chicken legs. An ornery drunk, Mickey had already made plenty of enemies in town, but Wade's reputation is on the rocks. Hayley reckons it's up to her to settle this mess—a charbroiled mystery with all the fixin's.

Includes seven delectable recipes from Hayley's kitchen!

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Country music singing sensation Wade Springer is staying in Bar Harbor, ME, and the local gals are quite smitten. The newspaper's food columnist, exuberant Hayley Powell, lands a gig as the celebrity's private chef, but when one of his roadies ends up incinerated in a burned-up tour bus, Hayley can't resist investigating. Throw in a gay police chief, a bartending brother, and a gabby best friend, and you've got a winning formula for a light, nicely seasoned cozy. Cocktail and food recipes included. VERDICT Brother-sister writing team Rick Copp and Holly Simason set a snappy pace, introduce fun characters, and write a clever plot. This second series entry (after Death of a Kitchen Diva) is a tasty entrée for the culinary cozy crowd.
