Description

The author of Scam Chowder dishes up "a lighthearted mystery involving romance, revenge, and chocolate fondue . . . a tasty mixture" (Blue Moon Mystery Saloon).
Val Deniston certainly has her plate full running a café, dabbling with recipes, and helping her grandfather prepare for the town's upcoming tri-centennial celebration, but she's grown fond of her new life in the Chesapeake Bay town of Bayport . . .
So when Val is asked to reclaim her old position as a cookbook publicist in New York City, she puts off her decision in order to help her grandfather perfect his chocolate fondue for the weekend festivity's dessert cook-off. But after the opening ceremonies, Val finds a houseguest strangled to death in her grandfather's backyard. She suspects a classic case of mistaken identity, especially when another guest nearly bids her life a fondue farewell. Now it's up to Val to keep the killer from making another stab at murder . . .
Includes six five-ingredient recipes!

        April 15, 2016
        Paying guests are a major headache for a small-town cook and her grandfather. Val Deniston had urged her granddad, locally known as the Codger Cook, to rent out his extra rooms for the Bayport Tricentennial Festival. Now she's not so sure it was a good decision. Val moved to the lovely Chesapeake Bay area after being forced out of her job as a cookbook publicist and dumping her unfaithful boyfriend in New York City. The houseguests, who've gathered to plan Jennifer Brown's wedding, include two bridesmaids, Fawn Finchley and Sarina Rafael, and best man Noah Hurdly. Oddly, Payton Grandsire's mother couldn't make room for her son's fiancee in her own home, though she did manage to accommodate a favored former girlfriend. When Fawn is found strangled in the backyard, Val and her grandfather slip into sleuthing mode. They've already solved several murders (Scam Chowder, 2015, etc.), and granddad is taking a course to become a private detective. As they follow the clues, Val also has to cope with the presence of (1) her former boyfriend, who's come to Bayport to see her; (2) the celebrity chef who was instrumental in her job loss, now in town to judge a cooking contest; and (3) her mother, who suddenly arrives with serious doubts about Val's new boyfriend. The intergenerational sleuths dredge up several interesting questions about old and new relationships among members of the wedding party. But Val wonders whether Fawn was mistaken for someone else, perhaps herself. Corrigan keeps her simple mixture of pleasant characters, murder, and recipes in the oven just a little too long to be truly tasty.
