Dear Reader

Dear Reader:

Savor the mystery! The 4th tasty installment in A Cookbook Nook Mystery series, FUDGING THE BOOKS, is available.

Pirate Week is sweeping through Crystal Cove and keeping Jenna Hart and her bookstore, the Cookbook Nook, plenty busy. But she’s not too swamped to also host the local Chocolate Cookbook Club’s meeting—especially because the guest of honor is her friend, candy maker and cookbook author Coco Chastain.

Jenna whips up a delicious event amidst the rowdy festivities, but the mood is soon broken by robberies, simmering tempers, and a dead body—Coco’s editor, Alison. The suspects turn out to be more plentiful than a pot full of gold doubloons, so to prove Coco isn’t responsible for the dastardly deed, Jenna will have to stir up some clues and figure out who’s the real sticky-fingered killer…

Praise for A Cookbook Nook Mystery series:

“… is the right recipe for a real page turner!” ~Kate Carlisle, New York Times bestselling author of the Bibliophile Mysteries.

“Kudos to the author for creating a welcoming store with such a strong cast of characters.” ~Lesa’s Book Critiques

The fifth in the series, as yet untitled, will debut August, 2016.
