The book introduces us to an aspiring chef named Amy Flowers who is preparing to open her own cafe in a small town in Virginia. She plans to cook Southern, down-home meals that she learned from her grandmother and is hoping her brand of comfort food will be the talk of the town. She is currently waiting tables at Lou’s Joint and instead of quitting, she offers to buy the place. Lou Lou seems ready to make a deal and Amy shows up to talk to her, only when she arrives – Lou Lou is dead and she’s the prime suspect.

One day, Millie finds an abandoned baby possum which leads her to meeting Caleb Young.
