In the latest Southern cozy from the author of The Calamity Café, small-town chef Amy Flowers can’t take her freedom for granted when she’s served up as a murder suspect… 
It’s Independence Day in Winter Garden, Virginia, and the residents are gearing up for their annual celebration. The Down South Café is open and flourishing, and Amy Flowers is busy making pies and cakes for the holiday. The only thorn in her side is Chamber of Commerce director George Lincoln, who is trying to buy the café so he can tear it down and build a B&B on the site.
When George collapses while eating at the Down South, everybody assumes it’s a heart attack—until the autopsy declares it to be poisoning. Now, it’s up to Amy to prove her innocence before her liberty is lost.
Includes delicious Southern recipes!

Warning- reading to the very end of this delicious cozy may cause cravings for more.
And will probably encourage you to spend more time in your kitchen,

Besides a well disguised murderer we get a cast of characters with secrets and quirks.
Amy Flowers is still trying to prove herself as the owner of The Down South Cafe. Since the previous owner of the restaurant was murdered there it seems especially unlucky to have a patron drop dead right at the counter. Amy and her family are right in the middle of the action trying to figure out why and who might have had reason to want the man dead. Meanwhile, Aunt Renee breezes back into town creating her own crisis. 

A strong story about family and friendship, weathering life's storms, and discovering that everyone has secrets. It is amazing that we ever find people to trust!
Danger lurks around each corner until a dramatic climax.
