How could a few bubbles have gone so wrong?

It's a CO2 cook-off! Chef Kirschoff and Vic's friends from the Alaskan cruise are back for a carbonation contest, with Erin and Vic acting as two of the judges. It's fizzy, it's fun, what could possibly go wrong?

Apparently, someone did not get the memo. At first, when Beryl Batcombe is found dead in the restaurant's cold room, everyone assumes it was a terrible accident. But as Erin and Vic are drawn into the mystery, it becomes obvious that this was not an innocent mistake.

***** I love this series! This time Erin and Vic are reunited with friends they made on a recent Alaskan cruise. When Chef Kirschoff asks them to judge a culinary contest, they have no idea it will turn deadly. Many secrets will be unearthed before the killer is found. The plot is as twisty as a country road and the characters are well-developed and believable.

Like baking mysteries? Cats, dogs, and other pets? Award-winning and USA Today Bestselling Author P.D. Workman brings readers back to small town Bald Eagle Falls for another culinary cozy mystery to be solved by gluten-free baker Erin Price and her friends.

Behind the book

Author’s notes may contain spoilers!

I’ve known for some time that Chef Kirschoff and some of Vic’s friends from the Alaskan cruise would make their way into a future story. And what could be better than a cook-off? 

I did a little bit of looking around for what kind of cook-off to have the friends participate in, and there was lots on chili cook-offs. But Auntie Clem’s Bakery is all about desserts, not meat/beans, so I didn’t want a chili cook-off. And they already participated in a baking contest before (which is how they ended up on the Alaskan cruise.) So what’s an author to do? 

Researching dessert cook-offs and what “accidents” might take place during the contest, I happened across the idea of using carbon dioxide for both. 

Please take care when handling dry ice!
