And when a pie-making bigwig suspiciously drops dead after sampling the company's latest wares, Josie leaps into action. She loves her teeny-weeny community, despite its blemishes--and any stain on its reputation must be eradicated But if she sticks her thumb--or her nose--into this particular pastry, she's going to pull our more thank a plum...and she may end up getting her own lethal just desserts.
