Newly hired short-order cook Maggie Lewis learns the hard way that too many secrets will spoil the stew
After losing her VFW job, financially strapped Maggie Lewis finds a sweet gig as a cook at her favorite diner in North DeSoto, Florida. Despite some minor mishaps in the kitchen and money still being tight, Maggie starts to regain her sense of security...until her least favorite customer, persnickety spinster Helen Pritchard, comes down with food poisoning. When an outbreak of salmonella sickens several patrons, and the health department shows up at their door, it becomes clear that someone is out to sabotage Maggie's boss and close down the diner. With the help of her tenant, newly licensed PI Michael Bradley, Maggie must track down the culprit before he kills more than just the business.
