"Love Chopped and mysteries? This delightful character-driven cozy is just the treat for you."— Kirkus Reviews

Six chefs are preparing to compete in an outdoor tent at Storyton Hall in Virginia for prizes that will boost their careers—but is there someone who can't stand the heat? It looks that way when one of the contestants is found dead in a pantry packed with two centuries' worth of cookbooks, among other treasures and rarities.

Could there be a connection to other recent events in town, like tampering with the costume of a local mascot? Jane isn't sure, but after someone serves a second course of murder, the kitchen must be closed and the killer must be found . . .

"Readers will find themselves wanting to live in Storyton, no matter how many people end up dead there."—Suspense Magazine on Murder in the Locked Library
