Still smarting over the break-up with her boyfriend, Josh, Chloe Carter takes a job as a cookbook writer's assistant-a job that puts her in contact with Josh's chef friend, Digger.

Chloe is still upset over Josh moving to Hawaii and absolutely in love with Adrianna's new baby Patrick. She is also short of money, so she takes a job helping to write a cookbook based on restaurants in the area. However, she has to deal with Digger, one of Josh's best friends. When he dies in a fire, Chloe knows that was no grease fire. As she works on solving his murder she has to deal with her new employer and the possibility that this tragedy will bring Josh back to Boston. Always entertaining, and including recipes.
