It's time for the Irish Spring at the Ballantyne Foundation, and charity director/PI-in-training Elliott Lisbon kicks off the annual Pot of Gold Cook-Off in shamrock style. Twenty chefs compete for the corned beef and cabbage crown, but only one can win the title. The odds improve when one chef goes missing...until Elli finds the Ballantyne's own Chef Carmichael standing over the body with a knife. With pug puppies Colonel Mustard and Mrs. White by her side, Elli searches for a clue to the killer. From million-dollar condos to a run-down trailer park, the evidence pits her against sexy Nick Ransom, and the case gets hotter than a handful of peppercorns. But despite a confession and cooperative suspect, she knows something about the case smells funny - and it has nothing to do with the cook-off. The luck of the Irish is nowhere in sight, but if Elli can't crack this one open, Chef's goose will get cooked for good.
