Say cheese! STIRRING THE PLOT, the third tasty installment in the new COOKBOOK NOOK MYSTERY series, is available.
Halloween in Crystal Cove, California, is a big deal, involving a spooky soiree where the Winsome Witches, a fund-raising group, gather to open up their purse strings and trade superstitions. But party magicians, fortune-tellers, and herbalists are only the beginning of this recipe for disaster. Jenna Hart has packed The Cookbook Nook chock-full of everything from ghostly texts to witchy potions in anticipation of the annual fund-raiser luncheon. But there’s one unexpected addition to the menu: murder. When the Head Priestess of the Winsome Witches is found dead, there’s plenty of blame to go around, and Jenna will have to use more than just sleight of hand to conjure up the truth…
Praise for the Cookbook Nook series:
“… is the right recipe for a real page turner!” ~Kate Carlisle, New York Times bestselling author of the Bibliophile Mysteries.

The fourth in the series COOKING UP A STORY will debut July, 2015.
