Second in a new cozy mystery series featuring Southern cooking that is to die for.
It’s Independence Day in Winter Garden, Virginia, and the residents are gearing up for their annual celebration. The Down South Café is open and flourishing, and Amy Flowers is busy making pies and cakes for the holiday. The only thorn in her side is Chamber of Commerce director George Lincoln, who is still trying to buy the café so he can tear it down and build a B&B on the site.
When George collapses while eating at the Down South, everybody assumes it’s a heart attack—until the autopsy declares it to be poisoning. Now, on top of trying to figure out her relationship with a local policeman and helping her friend Jackie deal with her visiting mother, Amy’s got to prove it wasn’t the café’s food that killed him.
