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!

My Review

First I sure wished I was part of Amy Flowers family, she could whip up a delicious meal in seconds, or was planning another.
Miss Amy is kind to everyone including grumpy George Lincoln, but she sure didn’t expect him to drop dead in her Café. Thus a new mystery is born and as we go through the list of suspects, I kept changing my mind, and when you think you are sure, guess again.
There is a bit of sweet romance here, and an abundance of family, and everyone seems to be welcome at the dinner table.
As we go about trying to find out who killed George, we become immersed in the daily life of this Southern Town, and get to know just about everyone, some are better off not knowing.
Does Amy have to kind of a heart for her own good, or will she learn who was responsible and then put her own life in jeopardy.
I want to read more by this author, and keep up with her darling pets and family. There are some unanswered personal questions here, and I want to find out. I see there are two other books in this series, and they are now on my must read list. Enjoy!
I received this book through Great Escapes Book Tour, and was not required to give a positive review.
