Death for Dinner Health inspector Poppy Markham suspects murder when a popular chef buys the (organic) farm. Feast in the Field is the event of the season for Austin foodies. A fine-dining affair hosted by the Friends of the Farm, it's Poppy Markham's favorite opportunity to drink boutique wine and get the latest scuttlebutt from her pals in the restaurant business. But this year's hottest dish of gourmet gossip won't be whispered over a plate of cucumber crudités. Instead, it will be the announcement of the organization's new president-elect. The competition between the candidates has been hotter than horseradish, and when the winner--uptight restaurateur Dana White--is struck down in her own kitchen, it's up to Poppy to figure out who took her off the menu. Praise: "A must-read for cozy lovers."--Publishers Weekly "Allen delivers a breezy and likeable menu."--Kirkus Reviews
