Murder with Macaroni and Cheese:  A.L. Herbert

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 role 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.
