Blackwell North Amer
Summoned from her Arizona ranch to take charge of her teenage great-nephew and his twin sister, Genia Potter takes a rental on the Rhode Island coast. Old acquaintance Stanley Parker is only too happy to welcome Genia to bucolic Devon. He has already put the boy to work in his greenhouse, and Genia and her great-niece are soon busily preparing for the tasting party that she and Stanley are hosting that evening at her cottage. A passionate cook and recipe collector himself, Stanley has already roped Genia into collaborating on The Secret Ingredient Cookbook, chock-full of Rhode Island culinary mysteries. Now is their chance to test some recipes and solicit others from each of the invited. Stanley has carefully selected the six guests. And each has been asked to contribute a recipe with one secret ingredient. Genia asks no questions - until the lobster bisque is cold and all but one are present. Where is Stanley? Dead. And unlamented. Has one of the guests concocted a secret recipe for murder? Everyone has a motive. And everyone has a secret - including Genia's troubled great-nephew, the prime suspect.
There's no time to lose. But Genia's sleuthing soon leads her back to Stanley's treasured cookbook. Some cooks would kill for his secrets. Someone already has. Now Genia is about to stir up the killer again in a mystery that dishes up plenty of rousing entertainment and good old-fashioned suspense...just what we've come to expect from this wickedly brilliant series.
