The Apple Pie Alibi

The Apple Pie Alibi

When Winnie Kepler trades in her business degree for a part-time gig at her grandma Velma’s diner, she realizes that her new career choice is perhaps not the best recipe for success. Everything changes when a rookie cop walks into the diner and announces that Velma has chopped a fellow chef at the town fair’s annual cooking competition. With the town’s crotchety old police captain hell-bent on charging Velma with murder, Winnie shelves her spatula to investigate and clear Velma’s good name. She soon discovers that every competitor had a motive to kill the victim. As an old friend in need makes an unexpected visit, Winnie finds that time is quickly running out to save Velma. Unless she can prove . . . The Apple Pie Alibi!
