Chocolate and Old Lace

Where there’s a will, there’s a body…

For one brief hour on a sunny Texas morning, amateur baker Holly Hart glimpses a life she’d always dreamed about – thanks to a bequest from elderly Miss Alice. But her old friend is barely cold in the ground when Holly’s dream turns into a nightmare as she’s accused of Miss Alice’s murder.

As the only stranger in tight-knit rural Airlie Falls, and the only person with any kind of motive (the will) – things aren’t looking good for Holly. Especially when more bodies start piling up and mysterious letters start circulating faster than Holly can pull a tray of cherry nut clusters out of the oven!

Locals in the little town are getting uneasy, especially when Holly starts to suspect the old lady’s murder has links to a sixty year old suspicious death on the very property she’s inherited.

But how can Holly prove the two are related – and that she’s innocent?
