Mahalia's Sweet Tea is known for serving the best soul food in Prince George's County, Maryland. But owner Halia also likes to indulge in some a la carte detective work. Can she solve the murder of a former "mean girl" when a high school reunion takes a deadly turn? When the organizing committee for her upcoming high school reunion desperately needs a caterer, Halia agrees to help out. Soon she's serving up her signature macaroni and cheese and famous chicken wings to a host of appreciative ex-classmates. Some folks have blossomed since graduation. Others, like manipulative Raynell Rollins, currently married to a former football star, haven't changed nearly enough. When Raynell is found dead the morning after the reunion, the roll call of possible suspects could fill the school gymnasium. Extra-marital affairs, mega-church scandals and sports secrets...Raynell had her perfectly manicured hand in a lot of sticky situations. With her cousin Wavonne's bungling assistance--and a helping of unwelcome dating advice from her mother, Celia--Halia is on course to track down the killer, before she becomes the alumna most likely to meet an untimely end... Features delicious recipes from Mahalia's Sweet Tea, including Double Crust Chicken Pot Pie and Chocolate Marshmallow Cake.
