Life in Ravenwood Cove is sweet…until the most hated man in the area’s history moves back to town. Buster Radcliffe’s fortune was made by selling jams and jellies nationwide, but will that be enough to protect him from enemies or just make him a target for murder?

Amanda already has enough on her plate without having to deal with the uproar around Radcliffe’s return. A new house under construction, a thriving bed-and-breakfast that suddenly has disaster after disaster, a handsome husband who’s gone on business a lot of the time, and an estranged father that shows up on her doorstep. When her life suddenly gets tangled up in Radcliffe’s plots, Amanda has to dig up town secrets that could make her a target as well.

This is a clean cozy mystery, rating PG because hey, someone does die in the story.
