Threats can't stop this sassy sleuth from finding a killer! Arizona’s Red Rock country beckons, and tour guide Madrone Hunter’s ready for a relaxing week after a tough tour guiding and cooking for finicky clients. Her plans—explore scenic small town Cottonwood, AZ—fall flat as a bad soufflé when a crusty elderly client with a vindictive streak turns up dead…murdered. Since Madrone discovers the body and since the client planned to sue Madrone’s employer, she’s the chief suspect. Chef Madrone prefers sifting flour to sifting through secrets but vows to find the killer. Problems rise faster than her yeast bread. She uncovers plenty of secrets among the many folks her client enraged and faces betrayal and danger—but several great meals—as she struggles to discover who wanted her client silenced. Before she herself is silenced.
