Her husband was supposed to come back, but now Rossalyn must rebuild and raise their son alone. Leaving their old life behind, she takes 13-year old Ryan cross-country to the small town where she grew up.

On the road trip home, she makes a discovery.

An old building on Main Street catches her eye and sparks an idea. There’s just something about it. Rossie knew immediately that it would be a perfectly charming place for a business…but what kind? When Ryan brought home a library book on bacon, her course was set. She had to open a BBQ and bacon café, and call it Hawg Heaven. Her late husband would have loved it.

Things are not quite as sweet as they seem in the small town, however.

A body is found behind her new business, which spurs a string of unfortunate events that pushes Rossie to the edge.

You’ll love this emotional roller coaster of a Cozy Mystery, because every good murder needs a tough-as-nails woman to get to the bottom of it.
