Food and cocktails columnist Hayley Powell will be cooking alongside top chefs at a cookbook author's party. But a killer plans to ruin her appetite . .

When Hayley's idol, cookbook author and TV personality Penelope Janice, invites her to participate in a Fourth of July celebrity cook-off at her seaside estate in Seal Harbor, Maine, Hayley couldn't be more flattered. She just hopes she can measure up. With a who's who of famous chefs whipping up their signature dishes, this holiday weekend has all the ingredients for a once-in-a-lifetime culinary experience.

Instead, Hayley gets food poisoning her first night and thinks she overhears two people cooking up a murder plot. The next morning, a body is found at the bottom of a cliff. Tragic accident or foul play? To solve a real cliffhanger, Hayley will need to uncover some simmering secrets--before a killer boils over again . . .

My Thoughts:

In this book Hayley meets her idol Penelope Janice a cookbook author when Penelope invites Hayley to spend the weekend at her estate in Seal Harbor.  Hayley agrees and not long before drama unfolds.  For Hayley that entails food poisoning and eavesdropping on a murder plot!  Did Hayley hear a murder plot or was her food poisoning that severe that she dreamed it?  When Penelope's husband winds up dead it's up to Hayley to figure out what is going on!  Will Hayley figure it out of will her snooping get her that much closer to last call?

This book was great we get to see Hayley team up with Bruce from work and together they try to get to the bottom of what is going on with the rich and elite.  After several attempts on Hayley's life and a little work from Bruce and an old ex-girlfriend they are able to piece together what is really going on and why!  I can't wait for the next in this fun series!
