And Then There Were Crumbs
Kate McGuire's life was sweet in Manhattan before she lost her restaurant job and fiancé. But sometimes that's just the way the cookie crumbles, and soon she finds herself starting from scratch in the island town of Coral Cay. It has everything she's looking for: sunny beaches, friendly locals, and a Help Wanted sign in the bakery shop window. Once she convinces the shop's owner Sam Hepplewhite to hire her, Kate can't tie on her apron fast enough. Little does she know that trouble, like warm dough, is on the rise. Stewart Lord is a real estate developer with a taste for a different type of dough: the green kind. He knows that he could make a killing by purchasing the Cookie House from Sam, who flat-out refuses to sell. But when Stewart turns up the heat on Sam-then turns up dead after eating a fresh batch of Sam's cinnamon rolls-all eyes focus on the bakery. When the police arrest Sam for murder, Kate must somehow prove that her curmudgeonly boss is innocent.
