Publisher's Summary

Tired of waiting tables at Lou's Joint, Amy Flowers doesn't just quit - she offers to buy the place from her bully of a boss. Amy has dreamed of making the kind of Southern, down-home treats and dishes that her grandmother always loved to serve the kooky cast of regulars at the restaurant. At first Lou refuses to sell, but when she seems ready to make a deal, she tells Amy to come see her. Showing up at the eatery ready to negotiate, Amy is shocked to find her former employer murdered. As the prime suspect, Amy will have to clear her name by serving up the real killer - and with Lou's stack of enemies, that's a tall order.

    Story
    "Three and a half stars"

    I enjoyed this story. The characters were well developed and interesting. The plot was light-hearted with a steady pace. The only problem I had with the story is that the main character, Amy, had no reason to investigate. Through out the story she insists that she is a suspect and must find the killer. However, no one suspects her of committing a crime, not even the police. Then, at the end of the story she finally admits she has no motive. That part of the story made no sense and was annoying. I realize that the lead character in cozy mysteries are naturally nosy and are always involved in the investigation. But they usually have a plausible reason. I was able to overlook this plot hole because the story was well developed and easy to follow. Hopefully, the kinks will be worked out in the next book, because, I will be reading it.
