Kate Jasper, Marin County, California's own, organically grown, amateur sleuth returns in this fourth mystery in the series. ("One of the most appealing and believable heroines in the current mystery field." —Phyllis Brown, owner of Grounds for Murder Bookstore.) Kate and her new sweetie have finally moved in together in Fat-Free and Fatal. But her sweetie's venomous mother has moved in too, and she's working hard at breaking up the relationship. Kate signs up for a vegetarian cooking class to get out of the house and out from under the prongs of her almost mother-in-law's tongue. Only it's a case of out-of-the-frying-pan-into-the-fire when the owner of the class's venue, The Good Thyme Cafe, is found dead... strangled by the electric cord of a SaladShooter. The police suspect Kate's best friend, Barbara. Kate sleuths, fearing that otherwise, her friend's fowl-free goose may be cooked.
