The Main Ingredient by Margo Wilson
Enjoy this novel by Dunnellon author Margo Wilson. Wendy Whitby returns to her childhood home in Wisconsin to await her mother's death. But mom has other plans. As the days pass, Wendy begrudgingly helps out a high school pal who has opened a restaurant and a friend who also has volunteered her assistance. After the restaurant burns to the ground, Wendy and her friends are suspected of arson. If they don't find the arsonist, they face prison. Their investigation opens old wounds, reveals secrets that maybe should have been left concealed, and tries to answer what price one is willing to pay for family, friends, and a plate of lake perch.
