A lady in the kitchens . . .
Alone in the world and too proud for charity, vicar's daughter Emma Lynn earns her living by cooking -- in a tavern! But her independence has a heavy price -- a tavern wench isn't fit to mix with the gentry, and Emma has turned her back on the 'Polite World.'
Mr. Benedict Grantley, amateur sleuth and baronet's heir, isn't going to let Emma's principles stand in his way. As Ben uncovers the startling truth about a series of murders Emma is thrust into 'Society' . . . thrown into danger . . .and plunged into love!
