If there's one thing that Corinna Chapman, proprietor of the Earthly Delights Bakery, can't abide, it's people not eating well. So when a strange cult which denies the flesh and eats only famine bread turns up, along with a malnourished body, Corinna is very disturbed indeed.
On top of that, her hippie mother, Starshine, has turned up out of the blue; someone is poisoning people with weight loss herbal teas;
and odd things are happening at the nearby Cafe Vlad Tepes, which attracts a very strange clientele indeed. Altogether, it's a delicious recipe for murder, mayhem, and mystery.
