Mystery Cozy

Merry is making a fresh start in small–town Autumn Vale, New York, in the mansion she's inherited from her late uncle, Melvin. The house is run–down and someone has been digging giant holes on the grounds, but with its restaurant–quality kitchen, the place has potential for her new baking business. She even has her first client—the local retirement home.

Unfortunately, Merry soon finds that quite a few townsfolk didn't like Uncle Mel, and she has inherited their enmity as well as his home. Local baker Binny Turner and her crazy brother, Tom, blame Melvin for their father's death, and Tom may be the one vandalizing her land. But when Tom turns up dead in one of the holes in her yard, Merry needs to prove she had nothing to do with his death—or her new muffin–making career may crumble before it starts...

Re: Bran New Death

I can't wait to read your books in all of your series!! I think the titles are very clever, and that's part of the reason that I'm drawn to your books to begin with. To show your witty side when coming up with titles for your books shows warmth, and invites the reader to see what you have to offer them. I'm sure that your books are just as clever as the titles, and I'm looking forward to reading them this Fall. Congratulations on your latest book, and on your upcoming series!!

Thanks so much, Peggy!! I have so much fun with the titles... Book 2 is going to be Muffin but Murder!
Victoria Hamilton 3:33pm September 19, 2013)

I love the titles of the books! Sounds like you are a very
busy writer - three series - WOW!
Marguerite Guinn 4:48pm September 19, 2013)

A reading a good cozy mystery is just the perfect end to a busy day for me---and your books just scream cozy. I can't wait to see what you do with teapots.
Sue Farrell 5:08pm September 19, 2013)

I can't wait to read Bran New Death, it sounds like a good book.
Rita Wray 8:39pm September 19, 2013)

I absolutely LOVE this author and am so excited that she now has multiple
series for me to enjoy! I started with her vintage kitchen series and was
just lucky enough to win a copy of Bran New Death on a blog contest. I am
eagerly awaiting my copy and will devour it as soon as it appears. Then I
will have to be patient until Tempest in a Teapot comes out next June! If
you haven't read her books,run, don't walk to your nearest bookstore and
treat yourself to a wonderful read. This lady know how to write characters
you relate to and fall in love with, while balancing the plot and mystery
details to keep you guessing until the last page. A true gem of an author.

I would find your juggling act very hard because I get completely immersed in my characters' lives and their surroundings and the forthcoming plot points. I have to finish one work and take a break, then start another.
Clare O'Beara 10:24am September 27, 2013)

Hey, all... thank you so much for commenting! I am currently
writing book 4 of the Vintage Kitchen Mysteries, but did you
know that Book 3, Freezer I'll Shoot, is coming November 5th?
I'm so excited, and I'll be back at Fresh Fiction to blog!
Victoria Hamilton 11:06am September 30, 2013)

Cant wait to read the series. Im gonna put in on my wishlist. Thank u 4 a great giveaway
Rina Darmayanti 5:35pm October 1, 2013)

Loved everything about this book, the heroine, the setting
and especially the mystery!
