Red Beans And Vice (Hardcover) by Temple, Lou Jane
Smart aleck, saucy chef Heaven Lee is cooking up trouble in New Orleans when she travels to help the Sisters of Holy Trinity (based on the famous Ursuline nuns) hold their annual benefit dinner. The convent is in financial trouble and they need Heaven's help to stay afloat, so she creates a signature dish called Nola Pie (which will tantalize the reader's sweet tooth). But pie can't solve a murder. The stakes get higher when the convent's cross is stolen and Truly Witten turns up murdered with Heaven Lee's knife. Heaven Lee investigates the crime, dishing up suspense and delectable New Orleans cuisine and leaving readers on the edge of their seats and begging for seconds! Includes recipes.
