When Autumn Roth gets a once-in-a-lifetime job offer from a local five-star restaurant, she finds herself torn between furthering her career, or staying at the job that she has grown to love. After a disastrous job interview, which ends with a dead body and a number of unanswered questions, Autumn soon realizes that she has much more urgent priorities.

She becomes one of six suspects as the police begin to investigate the murder, and when the evidence begins to point toward her, Autumn decides to take matters into her own hands without realizing that she has made a grievous mistake.

Pie shop owner Bertha Hannah might not have any children of her own, but this Mother’s Day she is celebrating by helping to cater a Wine and Cheese party for some of the richest ladies–and mothers–in all of Culver’s Hood, Nebraska. She has a delicious cheesecake tart prepared for the occasion, and things start off swimmingly, until a gruesome discovery is made at the elegant venue.
When the hostess of the party is found, face down, in one of the estate’s beautiful fountains, Detective Harry Manor is all too ready to point a finger at one of Bert’s fellow church members, who happens to be at the party. Bert steps in, along with her friends Shiv and Carla, to see what clues they can find to exonerate the innocent churchgoer, before the real killer slips through their fingers and gets away with murder.
