Overview

India Street returns home to Nantucket Island after two years at Harvard, two at Johnson and Wales Culinary Institute and five working in the kitchen of her teacher, mentor and friend's Newport, Rhode Island bistro. She's taking a big risk starting her own catering business in a seasonal location but Nantucket is home and she'd determined to succeed. The Blue-Eyed Scallop Catering Co. had had a terrific summer but early fall throws her a huge curve. When one of her best clients dies of Curare poisoning after just one bite of her popular scallop appetizer, she becomes suspect #1. Who but the cook, of course?
Even if she can exonerate herself as murderer she just might have to relocate to Alaska under the new name The Sock-eyed Salmon. After all, in a small town there will always be those who suspect she's cooking with a new seasoning. One that kills! When her old high school love shows up years after their breakup to investigate the murder in his new position as private investigator they put aside their old competitiveness and join forces for the sake of the island whose acting Police Chief is a bumbling, arrogant, pain in the ass former high school bad apple. A quirky, feisty octogenarian turned spy, India's right hand assistant whose sardonic humor keeps everyone in stitches, a land exploiter whose only concession to the greening of America is stuffing his bank account with hundred dollar bills and a cast of other complex characters make this a great visit to Nantucket. Foodies will love the recipe talk in the Blue-eyed Scallop kitchen. Cozies don't get any better than this and the location is pure delight.
