It’s time for the State Fair of Texas—and cooking contests galore! Fryers are heating up, and stomachs are growling. But Phyllis Newsom had better watch out. Someone’s brought an appetite for murder....
 
Phyllis and her friends Carolyn and Sam are ready to whip up their best dishes and win some ribbons in Dallas. And they’re excited to learn that one of their favorite celebrity chefs—Joye Jameson of The Joye of Cooking—is broadcasting her TV show from the fair. When Phyllis’s funnel cake is picked as one of the best of that category, Joye invites her and the other finalists to prepare their delicious recipes live on the air.

So in order to clear her name, Phyllis will have to turn up the heat on this investigation before the real killer slips through her fingers….
