This is by far the strongest of the Supper Club Mystery series, as librarian James helps arrange the wedding of his artist father to gentle Milla, a cooking school teacher. James tries to rekindle his romance with policewoman Lucy after they both sought greener pastures, and also tries to find a house for himself. Meanwhile, mailman Bennett finally gets his chance to appear on Jeopardy, the goal he has long set for himself. When Milla's sister, a famous television chef, appears to bake the wedding cake, the tiny Shenendoah mountain community finds her as abrasive as she is famous. Her death is called an unfortunate accident, but James and Lucy are not convinced. Then someone from James' past appears, with a life-changing announcement.
