Jewell Deen, owner of the bake shop and crime museum Just Desserts in St. Augustine, Florida, flies to New York City to visit her nephew Barry and start her press tour for her first mystery cookbook.
What Jewell Deen didn’t expect was becoming involved in solving the double murder of a costume party guest held at her publisher Macgregor James’ estate and sea Captain Wayne Wright, who was found dead on his boat.
Could it have been Captain Wright’s boozy wife, whose suspicions about her husband’s philandering may have drove her to kill her husband? Perhaps it was Ashley Wentz, the beautiful but deceptive vixen who was rumored to have been having an affair with the captain? Or was it Jewell Deen’s own nephew, Barry?
