When vintage cookware and cookbook collector Jaymie Leighton spies an original 1920s Hoosier brand kitchen cabinet at an estate auction, it's love at first sight. Despite the protests of her sister that the 19th-century yellow-brick house they share in Michigan is already too cluttered with Jaymie's "junk," she successfully outbids the other buyers and triumphantly takes home her Hoosier.
But that night on the summer porch where they've left the Hoosier to be cleaned up, a man is murdered, struck on the head with the steel meat grinder that is part of the cabinet. Who is this stranger - and what was he doing on their porch? Does his death have anything to do with the Hoosier?
As the police struggle to determine the man's identity, Jaymie can't help doing a little digging on her own, accompanied by her three-legged Yorkie Poo, Hopalong. But in her bid to uncover the truth about the hidden secrets of the Hoosier, Jaymie may be the one who ends up going, going...gone.

History can be deadly in this cozy mystery!
A woman after my own heart!
Entertaining, enthralling, memorable
The first scene with Brett Delgado definitely had me anticipating his role in the story.
The last scene with the perpetrator was my favorite. Jaymie used her brains to get herself out of the predicament instead of relying on dumb luck or someone else to save her.
So glad the main character is one who finally uses her brain and doesn't get herself into stupid situations by acting on her feelings.
The narration was a little annoying at first, but I got used to it. The dialogue between characters sounded forced.
