Consoling herself with a cream puff after being let go as a restaurant reviewer from the San Francisco Chronicle, Darcy Burnett decides to join her Aunt Abby on the Big Yellow School Bus, one of the local food trucks, and start writing a cookbook based on the San Francisco Bay Area food festivals. Not everyone is happy about the food trucks, including one outspoken local chef who clashes with Abby and ends up dead the next day. Hoping to save her aunt—and her book dreams—Darcy investigates and realizes that the chef's hatred of food trucks put him on the hit list of a large number of people. As the case heats up, Darcy realizes that she may have just found a new recipe—for murder. VERDICT Pike's series debut starts off with a bang: a feisty family sets the tone and all the usual suspects are in place. Food truck recipes are included.
