It's the perfect night for a slice of key lime pie. And a murder…
Ex-spy Charlie Mission has settled into her role as Gossip's 'fixer'—the woman folks come to when they've got a problem nobody else can fix. When she's asked to find a missing recipe book right before the Tri-State Baking Competition, she's sure it will be an open and shut case. Hunt down the thief, retrieve the book, and cash in on the bounty.
But life is never simple in this cozy, small town.
When Charlie heads out to interview the first suspected thief on her list, she finds a dead body instead. It's murder by poisoned key lime pie, and to make matters worse, the recipe book is nowhere to be found. With a detective breathing down her neck, the famous Tri-State Baking Competition looming, and a murderer on the loose, Charlie's running out of time.

A Quick Cozy Escape
I am having so much fun with this series. While this is the second series to feature this ex-spy, granddaughter and grandmother duo, I have found it has been easy to jump right into this new series and not feel lost at all. The premise seems so off the wall, and I think it's one of the things I love the most about the series. Rosie A. Point knows how to craft fun and lovable characters, no matter what their occupation or backstory might be. Ex-spies, a small-town Texas inn, a cat foster center, werewolf sightings, and a baking competition. It really does seem like these elements were randomly picked out of a hat. But it all works and everything about this mystery is light and fun.
I continue to be in awe of how Rosie A. Point is able to churn these books out so fast while keeping her fans happy and anxious for more. If you are looking for a quick cozy escape then this is the perfect series for you.
