(From the publisher):
Alone in the world, too proud to accept charity, vicar's daughter Emma Lynn earns her living by cooking — in a tavern! But her independence has a heavy price: a tavern wench isn't fit to mix with the gentry, and Emma has turned her back on the Polite World.
Mr. Benedict Grantley, amateur sleuth and baronet's heir, isn't going to let Emma's principles stand in his way. As Ben uncovers the startling truth about a series of murders, Emma is thrust into Society... thrown into danger... and plunged into love!
