A Thanksgiving dinner goes awry thanks to a killer who’s hiding a cornucopia of secrets
Sisters Bernie and Libby Simmons have handled plenty of catering challenges with grace and aplomb. But this Thanksgiving, they’re cooking a feast for felons…
Whipping up Thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings can be stressful for anyone, but that goes double for the Field family. They know that every family get-together has to be picture perfect, or they risk getting cut out of dominating patriarch Monty’s extremely lucrative will.
That’s where A Little Taste of Heaven, Bernie and Libby’s catering company, comes in. Surely with their lumpless mashed potatoes and to-die-for gravy on the table, even the super-dysfunctional Fields can pretend to get along for one meal. But no one can dress up the disaster when the cover-worthy turkey goes boom right in Monty Field’s scowling face, sending him to that great dining room in the sky.
With every member of the Field family harboring their own cornucopia of secrets, figuring out who wanted to carve up Monty isn’t going to be easy.

Now, trapped with a killer determined to get more than his fair share of the pumpkin pie, Bernie and Libby are going to have to convince the Fields that they aren’t to blame—and find out who really is, fast. Because it won’t be long before the leftovers—and the Simmons sisters’ chances of surviving this real turkey of a day—run out for good…
