When Inversgail welcomes home native daughter and bestselling environmental writer Daphne Wood for her tenure as the author-in-residence for Inversgail schools, Janet Marsh and her business partners at Yon Bonnie Books look forward to hosting a book signing for her. However, Daphne's people skills have developed a few rough edges after living alone in the Canadian wilderness for years and working with her is difficult. Things only become more complicated once she arrives. That night, a young man - an American who'd spent a night in the B&B above Yon Bonnie Books - is found dead outside a pub. Knowing that Janet and her partners solved a previous murder, Daphne tries to persuade them to help her investigate. But while she's trying to prove herself to them, she ends up dead, poisoned by scones from the Yon Bonnie Books tearoom. Now to save the reputation of their business - not to mention the reputation of their scones - Janet and her partners must solve both murders.
