About the Book



"Samantha Barnes was always a foodie. And when the CIA (that's the Culinary Institute of America) came calling, she happily traded in Cape Cod for the Big Apple. But then the rising young chef's clash with another chef (her ex!) boils over and goes viral. So when Sam inherits a house on the Cape and lands a job writing restaurant reviews, it seems like the perfect pairing. What could go wrong? Well, as it turns out, a lot. The dilapidated house comes with an enormous puppy. Her new boss is, well, bossy. And the town's harbor master is none other than her first love. Nonetheless, Sam's looking forward to reviewing the Bayview Grill--and indeed the seafood chowder is divine. But the body in the pond outside the eatery was not on the menu. Sam is certain this is murder. But as she begins to stir the pot, is she creating a recipe for her own untimely demise?"--Publisher's description.



Book Synopsis



Beautiful Cape Cod, Massachusetts, is known for seafood, sand, surf, and, now...murder.

But then the rising young chef's clash with another chef (her ex!) boils over and goes viral.

The dilapidated house comes with an enormous puppy. Her new boss is, well, bossy. And the town's harbor master is none other than her first love.

Sam is certain this is murder. But as she begins to stir the pot, is she creating a recipe for her own untimely demise?
