First Chapter: Murder Is No Picnic by Amy Pershing

Murder Is No Picnic

(Cape Cod Foodie Mystery #3)

A search for the world's best blueberry buckle turns into a search for a killer in this delicious installment in the Cape Cod Foodie Mysteries by Amy Pershing.
 What could be better than a DIY clambake followed by the best blueberry buckle in the world? Sam has finally found the perfect recipe in the kitchen of Clara Foster, famed cookbook author and retired restaurateur.

But when Clara dies in a house fire blamed on carelessness in the kitchen, Sam doesn't believe it. Sam needs to find Clara's killer before the fireworks really start..

First chapter/first paragraph:
"Ladies and gentleman, I have an announcement," I said grandly.
My friends paused from wolfing down various decadent desserts and glanced at one another skeptically. They were not used to me saying anything grandly....
"My search for a blueberry buckle worthy of our upcoming Fourth of July is finally at an end," I said, still in grand mode.
