After solving the first murder to occur in her small town in over fifty years, all amateur sleuth and café owner, Shawna Taylor, wanted to do was help her recipe club prepare for Bisbee, Arizona's chocolate extravaganza. But, as fate would have it, after a round of taste-testing heavenly desserts, one club member drops dead.
The police believe Shawna's friend, Jessica, was the one who had offered the town's most hated woman a decadent chocolate topping laced with poison. Shawna refuses to believe the sweet dress shop owner would kill anyone and enlists the help of her most daring friends, an adventurous fashion diva and zany yoga instructor. Together, they must uncover the real murderer. Could it have been the act of a jealous wife? An elderly woman protecting her cats? A kindergarten teacher seeking retribution? A chef's payback for theft? Or a hippie artist's idea of revenge?
The trio faces danger at every turn in their search for the truth. The handsome local detective warns Shawna off, but she's not about to see her friend locked behind bars. If they aren't careful, the chocolate desserts planned for the extravaganza will be offered at her funeral.
P.S. Formerly called Sunset Peak in Cooking up Murder, the real name of the town is Bisbee, which I now use.
