Description

In the newest mystery in the USA Today bestselling series, there's a battle brewing in Cabot Cove between two eateries. But when one of the combatants becomes a fatality, Jessica Fletcher will have to get cooking and find a killer...
Jessica may not know everything about food, but she knows what she likes--and she definitely likes the Leg & Claw restaurant. Opened last summer by young couple Brad and Marcie, the Leg & Claw is their dream come true, combining Marcie's sunny personality with Brad's deft hand in the kitchen. But now their dream is turning into a nightmare.
Gerard -Pepe- Lebeouf is a renowned New York City chef who has a summer home in Cabot Cove. And now he's decided to open two new restaurants in Cabot Cove--in an old warehouse right next to the Leg & Claw.
As Lebeouf and his crew renovate the warehouse, the people of Cabot Cove slowly come to the realization that the town's newest celebrity may be more trouble than he's worth. His -assistants- are little more than thugs, and the haughty Lebeouf is nowhere near as charming as he seems--leading to a nasty confrontation with Brad.
So when Lebeouf is found dead with a knife planted in his chest, Brad naturally becomes suspect number one. But plenty of others had a motive to kill Pepe, and it's up to Jessica to uncover who really added a murder to the menu.
