"New York native Gia Morelli is just getting used to life in Florida when she gets word that the town government wants to shut down her pride and joy: the charming little diner known as the All-Day Breakfast Cafe. A forgotten zoning regulation means that the cafe was opened illegally, and hardboiled council president Marcia Steers refuses to budge. Gia is considering hanging up her apron and going back to New York, but before she gives up on her dream, she discovers something shocking in the local swamp: Marcia Steers, dead in the water. There's a secret buried in the books at town hall, and someone killed to keep it hidden. To save her cafe and bring a killer to justice, Gia and her friends will have to figure out a killer's recipe for murder"--.
