Summary (From the publisher):

Bridget Heaney spent her childhood as a pickpocket to support herself and her younger sister - by age twenty, she hadn't had many breaks in life. But ever since she learned to make her first pot of soup at the orphanage, she knew she wanted to cook at one of the great houses of New York. Now, in the home of wealthy and powerful department store owner Isaac Gold, her dream is about to come true.

Then, on Bridget's first day of work amidst gleaming copper pots and mighty woodstoves, she finds a body hidden inside the dough box. It is Gold's youngest son, whose whereabouts have been a mystery for the last few days. Bridget's courage and street sense take her from cook to crime-solver as she helps the heartbroken Gold family unravel the story of their son's fate. Justice will be served - along with a home-cooked meal.
