Publisher's Summary

When Hayley's idol, cookbook author and TV personality Penelope Janice, invites her to participate in a Fourth of July celebrity cook-off at her seaside estate in Seal Harbor, Maine, Hayley couldn't be more flattered. She just hopes she can measure up. 

With a who's who of famous chefs whipping up their signature dishes, this holiday weekend has all the ingredients for a once-in-a-lifetime culinary experience. Instead, Hayley gets food poisoning her first night and thinks she overhears two people cooking up a murder plot. 

The next morning, a body is found at the bottom of a cliff. Tragic accident or foul play? To solve a real cliffhanger, Hayley will need to uncover some simmering secrets-before a killer boils over again....

My favorite so far

This is my favorite Hayley Powell mystery so far. Even though I was pretty sure "who done it" from the near beginning, it had so many twists and turns and red herrings that it kept me interested until the end. The narrator slowed down a bit and actually used the punctuation which added to much of the delivery. I'm looking forward to book 11!

Perfect story for a lifetime movie

Thought it was a goofy story-line. Did not love the narrator. Thought it would be a light read but really not worth my time. :(
