Bookstore owner Tricia Miles throws a housewarming cocktail party in her new apartment. She even cooks all the food herself, which is quite a feat for someone who previously could not boil water. When one of her guests is fatally poisoned, is her cooking to blame, or is something more sinister at play? Either way, she is once again in hot water with her ex-lover Chief Baker. Meanwhile, Stoneham is being disrupted by a vandalism crime wave. It becomes the hot topic in the race for Chamber of Commerce president, in which Tricia is pitted against two bitter rivals.
