Lady Pemberton has a rare flower that people would kill for.
And if they had the flower, it would make them rich beyond their wildest dreams.
But that’s not the only reason people want to kill her.
If you’re one of them, you’ll probably have to stand in line and take a number.
When Dani’s contacted by Lady Ellen Pemberton to cater a dinner the night before the Dahlia Show she’s hosting in the village of Tintagal in North Cornwall, England, she’s completely put off by the woman’s imperious attitude. Dani finally agrees to do it only because her young niece, Anna, is completely enthralled by the legend of King Arthur, and the dinner is taking place very near King Arthur’s castle.
When she and Arthur, her sous-chef, who also owns an international private investigation firm, arrive in the small village where the dinner is to held, she finds out the woman is far worse than she’d imagined. Arthur regrets talking Dani into accepting the job, then he does a little investigating, and discovers that Lady Pemberton’s death is high on the priority list of a lot of people.
Fortunately, Giles, the son of one of the dahlia judges, is a Los Angeles Police Department homicide detective who has flown to England to make sure his mother won’t be collateral damage if there is an incident at the dinner. Along with Arthur and Matt, Arthur’s right-hand man, they team up, hoping to keep the dinner drama free.
But that may be more difficult than they think, because Lady Pemberton carries drama with her wherever she goes, often of her own making.
Join Dani, Arthur, Matt, and Giles, as they combine their efforts to keep Lady Pemberton alive, even though privately each of them thinks the village may be far better off if she’s dead.
This is the 9th book in the Chef Dani Rosetti Cozy Mystery Series by a USA Today Bestselling Author.
