It's time for the Irish Spring at the Ballantyne Foundation, and charity director/PI-in-training Elliott Lisbon kicks off the annual Pot of Gold Cook-Off in shamrock style. Twenty chefs compete for the corned beef and cabbage crown, but only one can win the title. The odds improve when one chef goes missing . . . until Elli finds the Ballantyne's own Chef Carmichael standing over the body with a knife. With pug puppies Colonel Mustard and Mrs. White by her side, Elli searches both sides of coastal living for a clue to the killer. From million-dollar condos to a run-down trailer park, the evidence pits her against sexy Nick Ransom, and the case gets hotter than a handful of peppercorns. But despite a confession and cooperative suspect, she knows something about the case smells funny—and it has nothing to do with the cook-off. The luck of the Irish is nowhere in sight, but if Elli can't crack this one open, Chef's goose will get cooked for good.
