Poor Fiona Silk is broke again. Her romance writing career is tanking, and her tiny house in the lovely community of St. Aubaine may be sold for unpaid taxes. But Fiona's new agent has a planFiona can write an erotic cookbook. This project would be easier if Fiona had a sex life or a working oven. Soon bad things start to happen to people, but, oddly, only when Fiona is nearby.
Before long, her tiny home is in flames and the body count is rising. Will Canada's most reluctant sleuth stop a killer before her own goose is cooked?

"...as adept at comedy as she is at laying out a tangled crime trail...Maffini surrounds Fiona with memorable- but often annoying- friends...Surviving their needs and obsessions is almost as daunting as solving the murder." - Foreword Magazine
"stylish and amusing..." - Maclean's Magazine
As if it weren't bad enough being a failed romance writer with no sex life, poor Fiona Silk has to cope with the spectacularly embarrassing demise of her old lover, the poet, Benedict Kelly. It's exactly the sort of thing people notice in St. Aubaine, Quebec, a picturesque bilingual tourist town of two thousand. Now the police start getting nasty, the media vans stay parked on her lawn and the neighbours' tongues keep wagging in both official languages. Worse, someone's bumping off the other suspects. Can Fiona outwit a murderer in the mood for some serious mischief?
