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. She’s not there a
minute before she’s charmed into making her high school
friend Charlotte’s wedding cake. The kitchen at the
Rumford Country Club seems perfect until Chef Emile’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
it’s not Emile’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:
Emile’s peppery personality had burned members and staff
alike. Sophia wonders which one of them burned him?
