Trouble arrives at Sugar Hill when Harry Bottoms checks into the Sugar Cookie Inn. A despicable character, he disrupts the lives of the inns owner, Miss Matilda and her chef Trixie, who is also her niece. He complains about everything and even tries to have Matildas two birds, Tara and John Paul, taken from her because, he says, shes abusing them.
Of course, the claim is false. Matilda loves the birds and would do nothing to harm them. Besides that, he calls the health department to complain that his food was contaminated with salmonella.
All his treachery comes to an end when Matilda discovers him dead in his car in the parking lot behind the inn. Who killed him and why? Thats what Matilda wants to know.
