Val Deniston certainly has her plate full running a café, dabbling with recipes, and helping her grandfather prepare for the town's upcoming tri-centennial celebration, but she's grown fond of her new life in the Chesapeake Bay town of Bayport. . .

So when Val is asked to reclaim her old position as a cookbook publicist in New York City, she puts off her decision in order to help her grandfather perfect his chocolatefondue for the weekend festivity's dessert cook-off. But after the opening ceremonies, Val finds a houseguest strangled to death in her grandfather's backyard. She suspects a classic case of mistaken identity, especially when another guest nearly bids her life a fonduefarewell. Now it's up to Val to keep the killer from making another stab at murder . . . 

Includes 6 five-ingredient recipes!

This was a really fun book to read. If you are a cozy fan, chances are you love small towns and quirky characters. Add in a town festival and it makes for the perfect opportunity for murder.
Val's grandfather has enough personality to carry this book and he is really only a supporting player. The out of town guests give us much to wonder about, each with several secrets. Add in the inconvenience of Val's potential love interests and this is the recipe for a comical disaster!  Past and present collide and fireworks fly!

I did receive a copy of this book via Netgalley to review.
