Secret Ingredients by Zoe Burke

From the anthology The Killer Wore Cranberry: A Second Helping (Untreed Reads Publishing, 2012).
It’s Thanksgiving, and Annabelle is meeting her boyfriend’s grandmother for the first time. She wants to make a good impression, but when a neighbor is murdered in the grandmother’s kitchen, Annabelle can’t stop asking questions – no matter who she pisses off.
A well-written, amusing story.
