Tricia Miles, mystery bookstore owner and amateur sleuth, throws a housewarming cocktail party in her new apartment and has cooked all the food by herself-quite a feat for someone who previously couldn't boil water. Then one of her guests is poisoned and dies. Tricia is left to wonder if her cooking is to blame or if there's something much more sinister at play. Either way, Tricia's once again in hot water with her ex-lover Chief Baker.

Meanwhile, the charming town of Stoneham is being disrupted by a vandalism crime wave. It's the hot topic in the race for Chamber of Commerce president, which sees Tricia pitted against two bitter rivals. With all that's going on, can she find the killer before she's the next item on the menu?
