Books, Cooks, and Crooks

(The third book in the Novel Idea Mystery series)
A novel by

The national bestselling Novel Idea Mysteries are back, as Lila Wilkins - literary agent and sleuth - is setting up a delicious cookbook fair. But the tension in the kitchen is about to boil over...

Inspiration Valley, North Carolina, is bubbling with excitement for the Taste of the Town festival, and Lila is right in the middle of it all. Along with her coworkers at the Novel Idea Literary Agency, Lila is organizing a grand celebrity chef event, featuring food television's biggest stars, complete with cooking demonstrations, cookbook giveaways, and even a culinary writing contest.

But just as the celebration is about to start, the demo kitchen blows up, taking one of the star cooks with it. With all the explosive egos of the cook's colleagues, it's hard to find someone who didn't have a motive to eliminate the competition. Now Lila will have to scramble to figure out which of her clients is a killer - before someone else gets burned.
