9780312388423: Bone Appétit (A Sarah Booth Delaney Mystery)

Sarah Booth always has had a lot on her plate-working as a private investigator and actress, keeping her ancestral home together, searching for the perfect man. If those "real" concerns weren't enough, there's Jitty, a ghost, who's on her case to have a child to continue the family line. Sarah Booth's just about had it...until her friend, Tinkie, convinces her to leave her worldly concerns behind and join her for a vacation. Is there anything a posh spa and cooking school can't cure?

The pampering and exquisite meals go a long way toward healing Sarah Booth's soul. But it's a corporate beauty pageant/cook-off that really takes her mind off of her woes. All these women, with their posturing and backbiting-they amuse Sarah Booth to no end. But soon the heated competition boils over and the top contender is poisoned. And, lo and behold, Sarah Booth finds herself hired to work on the case. So much for that much-needed R&R...
