I loved this book! Halia Watkins owns "Sweet Tea", an upscale soul food restaurant in Prince George's County, MD. One evening, she and her cousin Wavonne discover the body of Marcus Rand in her restaurant with one of her cast iron skillets next to it. Rand is an investor in the restaurant, as well as someone involved in less than above board business deals. Halia panics, and she and Wavonne move the body out into an alley. Halia goes about her daily business, waiting nervously for the discovery of the body which doesn't happen. She eventually goes back to the alley only to discover that the body is gone. Halia proceeds, with the help of Wavonne, to investigate what happened.

This is a cozy and humorous story with great characters and food descriptions that make you hungry. Wavonne is a terrific character who reminded me a bit of Lula from the "Stephanie Plum" series - a larger than life, dramatic personality with attitude. I am looking forward to the publication of the second book in this new series.
