From release/information:

Product Description: The Winter Market in the French Quarter is in full swing, but murder isn't taking a holiday in the latest from the author of Parchment and Old Lace.

The holidays are a busy time for scrapbook shop owner Carmela Bertrand--but not so hectic that she doesn't have time to enjoy browsing the booths at the Winter Market with her best friend Ava. The last thing the ladies expect to see is a lurching man stabbed by a serving fork, dying in front of them.

The victim is loathed restaurant critic Martin Lash, who posted his scathing reviews on the Glutton for Punishment website. And the prime suspect is New Orleans restauranteur Quigg Brevard--who was seen giving the critic a tongue-lashing minutes before someone stuck a fork in him. An old flame of Carmela, Quigg asks for her help, which does not please her current beau, Detective Edgar Babcock, to say the least.

Before her relationship is the next victim, Carmela needs to find a murderer who had no reservations about punishing the culinary curmudgeon. (Scrapbooking tips and recipes included.)
