Gracias to her best friend, Miriam Quinones-Smith gets a job as a Caribbean cooking expert on a Spanish-language TV show. When she attends a luncheon, a socialite suddenly falls face-first into the chicken salad. When a second woman dies, suspicions coalesce around Cuban herbalist Dr. Fuentes. Detective Pullman is not happy to find Miriam at every turn. After he catches her breaking into the doctor's apothecary, he enlists her help as eyes and ears to the Spanish-speaking community and the Coral Shores social scene, but her snooping may turn out to be a recipe for her own murder.
