Scorched Eggs By Laura Childs

Kit and Ricky’s vintage wedding is scheduled to take place in the park. Petra, Toni and Suzanne, the three owners of the Cackleberry Club restaurant (and Book Nook and yarn shop) are looking forward to the festivities. Suzanne is in the midst of a hair emergency (blond highlights if you must know) when she smells smoke. Of course, her first thought is that the bubblehead hair dryer is reacting with the foil on her hair. She looks like a baked potato, ready for the oven as it is. The smell gets stronger and the air fogs a bit. She calls the alarm and as people exit the salon, the building next door goes up in flames.
