Halia discovers her restaurant's co-owner dead in the kitchen when she goes back to the restaurant after she left him there having a meeting. No good can come to the restaurant if a dead body is in the kitchen so she takes it upon herself to solve the murder.
I enjoyed these characters. Halia is good but her cousin Wavonne is a hoot! The mystery was good but there were some unrealistic moments and a couple untied endings. I liked how the recipes used in the restaurant are woven through the book. The restaurant is as much a character as the people.
I want to go back to the restaurant with Halia for the next book. I cannot wait for it.
