Fashionista and event planner to the stars Haley Randolph thinks the Thanksgiving Day feast she's organizing for the wealthy young owners of the Pammy Candy Company at their Calabasas mansion will be easy--until the hostess is pushed to her death from a second floor balcony.
Money-hungry relatives expecting to dish up a share of the candy company profits, an ex-lover, and a family secret make a tempting recipe for murder. It's a feast of suspects as Haley gobbles up clues that threaten to turn this warm, welcoming occasion into cold leftovers--but with private detective Jack Bishop in charge of the investigation, things heat up fast.
Haley searches for the designer handbag of her dreams--but finds a hot new attorney instead--and a killer who knows revenge is a meal best served cold!
Bonus content! Includes an excerpt from another Haley Randolph mystery, as well as one of the historical romances Dorothy writes under the pen name Judith Stacy.
