An upcoming Grill Fest in Crystal Cove, California makes Jenna Hart happy that she moved back to help her Aunt Vera run the local culinary bookshop and café. She feels she's slowly regaining her love of life.

The Cookbook Nook is hosting an annual cook-off for anyone who cares to enter the competition. This year's challenge is grilled cheese. (Great grilled cheese recipes at the end of the book.) There seem to be some bruised egos, leftovers from previous contests. But who would kill someone over cheese and bread?

The eight-times winner is found shot to death in an alley behind the Nook. Cinnamon, the local sheriff, is hard put to sift through possible suspects. Jenna can't believe the Sheriff when she casts the local diner owner in that role. Marriages are on the brink of dissolving and wonderful sandwiches are grilled before the true culprit is unveiled.

Inherit the Word by Daryl Wood Gerber is a delightful read with some wonderful suggestions for cookbooks included.
