Bucolic Rumford, Kentucky has glowing fields of
bluegrass, a fine selection of bourbons, and now a
professional pastry chef. Broken-hearted Sophia Cummings
has come home from New York City. Sheâ€™s not there a
minute before sheâ€™s charmed into making her high school
friend Charlotteâ€™s wedding cake. The kitchen at the
Rumford Country Club seems perfect until Chef Emileâ€™s
body is discovered, sprawled near the stove, a cast iron
skillet on the floor close by.
With one look at the shiny, new frying pan, Sophia knows
itâ€™s not Emileâ€™s. She offers her knowledge to Sheriff
Carter and her talents to Evelyn, the manager, who needs
an interim chef. The mood in the country club is grim:
Emileâ€™s peppery personality had burned members and staff
alike. Sophia wonders which one of them burned him?
