From back of book:
The quite little New England town of Aleford is already in the grips of a wickedly exciting local election when they're bombarded by a California movie company filming a modern-day version of The Scarlet Letter. The arrival of the quirky troupe turns out to be a red-letter day for Faith Fairchild, who is hired to cater to the talented tantrum-throwers with the best of her culinary delights.
All is going well until an accusation of food poisoning is raised -- and leveled right at Faith's kitchen. With her famous Black Bean Soup in question, and her professional reputation on the table. Faith lauches her own investigation, and runs smack into a murder most foul... and some morsels of information that could prove lethal.
There seems to be nothing Faith Fairchild can't do. Gourmet cook, mother, minister's wife, master sleuth...

Her exploration into the source of the nasty slander leads the amateur investigator behind the scenes to a shocking off-camera murder. And suddenly more then Faith's reputation is at stake--her life itself could end up on the cutting room floor.
