Hayley Snow, a Key West food critic, is excited to welcome the Scottish Scone Sisters, Violet and Bettina Booth, to town. They are in town to give demonstrations and search for contestants for the American edition of their TV show. However, their plans are quickly thrown off when they find out the B&B they were supposed to stay at has been closed due to arson. The contestants they find are not ideal either, ranging from a grumpy guy to a perky lady with limited baking skills. Rayna, the owner of the B&B, is a much better baker but her controlling husband has forbidden her to compete.

The sisters are also concerned about their agent and the samples of a new bakeware line they plan to sell. When Rayna’s husband is murdered, she is the prime suspect. Despite her duties of showing everyone around the island and providing meals, Hayley’s curiosity leads her to investigate the murder. Through local gossip and internet searches, she discovers other people with motives to kill Rayna’s husband, including the mysterious agent who is using a false name. Hayley embarks on a series of humorous and dangerous adventures to uncover the truth.
