The bitter rivalry between two employees of antique collecting television shows heats up when they come to Hemlock Falls to have it out in a cooking contest. And it's a good thing that inn owners Meg and Sarah Quilliam are experts at appraising motives for murder when one of them keels over on camera...

Well, for me the beginning was a little slow. It took to almost page 200 before the "main event".
