From being to end this was one very enjoyable read. Each characters was fun and unique from Jeremiah to Penny each character is fun and enjoyable.

Shawn Reilly Simmons has cooked up something rocky this time, and it’s going to be a delicious read.
After surviving a brazen attack at one of her favorite local cafes, Penelope Sutherland is ready to escape the big city and head to her next film set. She and her Red Carpet Catering crew set up their kitchen on location in the tranquil mountains of Vermont.
But peace and quiet aren’t on the menu.
It starts to get hot when a series of accidents befall the celebrity tennis pro consulting on the film. Then mix in an uptight director, an isolated location, and a quirky bunch of locals with secrets of their own and that’s a recipe for disaster.
Penelope soon suspects a connection between the cafe attack and the incidents on set, and you know what comes next. She must uncover the truth before her goose gets cooked.
This page-turner is serving up the coziest of entertainment, and you do not want to miss it.
