When Trixie Matkowski agrees to take over her aunt's diner, she pictures lakeside views and delicious comfort food in the small town where she spent summers as a child. But the sweet scene turns sour when someone puts murder on the menu...

Trixie is in need of a fresh start away from her cheating ex-husband, but she may be biting off more than she can chew when she moves to upstate New York to run her family's famed Silver Bullet Diner. Not only is she caught off guard by the small town's resident heartthrob, Deputy Ty Brisco, but her first health inspection turns into a nightmare...when the inspector keels over in his Blue Plate Special.

It seems someone made a deadly addition to an old family recipe, and Trixie is determined to find out whodunit. But between serving up orders and sniffing out clues, she'd better watch her back--or her next meal might be her last.

Includes recipes!

After a divorce from Deputy Doug, Trixie Matkowski has taken up her Aunt Stella's offer to run the Silver Bullet Diner and summer housekeeping cottages in Sandy Harbor, New York. The book opens in mid-March where it's snowing like crazy on the shores of Lake Ontario. As Trixie is wondering why she moved to this climate, the local Health Inspector is found dead in her diner's kitchen with his face solidly planted in a dish of pork and scalloped potatoes. As Trixie investigates to clear her diner's name, she runs afoul of Deputy Ty Brisco, newly imported from Houston. Recipes are included...
