(From the publisher):
After Agatha's years of slaving to promote other people's success, her new life in a picture-book English village is a dream come true. And how better to make friends than by entering the village quiche-making competition? To ensure first prize, Agatha buys her entry at London's renowned Quicherie.
Alas, Agatha's impeccable product is soon exposed - as not only store-bought but poisoned. The contest judge, Mr. Cummings-Browne, rumored to be a connoisseur of women as well as food, succumbs after eating it, and with him go Agatha's chances for bucolic bliss - unless she can nab the poisoner.
In a reckless game of village quiche-and-tell, Agatha rushes in where angels might fear to tread, infuriating and entertaining her neighbors, but shrewdly gaining on her prey - all unaware that she's become the prey herself...
