Synopsis

Liz Walker is the quintessential broke all the time, cynically optimistic restaurateur. As the owner of a charming corner bistro in downtown Toronto, she doesnt mince words when glamour and romance elude her. Despite the foibles of running a notoriously risky business, covering cheques with her line of credit, and dealing with a fickle public, she wouldnt dream of doing anything else. Unfortunately, a missing chef, prickly health inspectors, and murder threaten to shut her down. When the body of her meat supplier, Mr. Tony of Kensington Market fame, is found dismembered, her star chef Daniel Chapin becomes the lead suspect, then goes missing. More problems arise when two people are poisoned at the place where Daniel has been moonlighting. Determined to get her chef back and clear her restaurants name, Liz jeopardizes her life in pursuit of a ruthless killer, crossing paths more than once with Detective Winn.
