Chefs will compete to win - and someone will lose their life.

The nation's hottest new reality show - the Ultimate Freakin' Cook-off - is coming to town, and Newbridge's chefs are champing at the bit to demonstrate their best chili recipes in a televised showdown.
With a huge cash prize and a front-page feature in the local newspaper up for grabs, Bethany decides to put her skills to the test. It'll be good for her business, and face it, she needs the prize money to pay the rent while her soup kiosk is closed during the train station renovation.
But when one person is hospitalized and another dies after tasting entries in the contest, Bethany and the other chefs are the prime suspects in a murder investigation. The ultimate showdown is about more than who has the best recipe - it's about who has the best motive.
Will Bethany catch the killer before another unsuspecting diner is poisoned? Or will the rogue murderer's rampage close all the restaurants in town?

Includes delicious recipes!
