Mystery Cozy | Mystery Culinary

3rd in nationally bestselling Cookbook Nook Mystery series.

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 under mysterious circumstances, there's no logical answer and plenty of blame to go around. With her aunt, Vera, unable to call on her ability to foresee the future, Jenna will have to use more than just sleight of hand and a few magic tricks to conjure up the truth...

Sandie White 2:12pm September 30, 2014)

Books with recipes are always some of my favourites, and when you throw in a mystery, well, I'm hooked!!

And if there was a shop like this here in Madison, I'd be in BIG trouble, as I totally LOVE cookbook shops! Getting me out of the cookbook section of any bookstore is difficult, but out of a store devoted to them?



Lynn Rettig 2:24pm September 30, 2014)

Reading, eating and being comfy. Nothing better
MaryEllen Hanneman 3:31pm September 30, 2014)

Wow, hello, everyone! How great to see your responses. I hope those that can't
afford them will talk to a librarian! I am a big fan of libraries! Best way to share a
book! Enjoy & hope to see you on my Mystery Lovers Kitchen blog, where a
bunch of authors, who love to cook up crime, serve up recipes daily! Savor the
mystery! ~ Daryl aka Avery
Daryl Wood Gerber 6:37pm September 30, 2014)

Cozy mysteries are my favorite type of book. I'd love to win. I love the library too. That's where I am now, using their computers. This would be good to read next month. Last year I read two Halloween mysteries in October.
Michelle Fidler 7:31pm September 30, 2014)

Lynn, I know what you mean about if there was a culinary cookbook shop in
town. I'd like to live in my own book! :)

Daryl aka Avery
Daryl Wood Gerber 8:17pm September 30, 2014)

All of the mysterious circumstances just weave the web to pull you into the story that you can not put this book down. Love magic with witches, spells and slight of hand to bring this to a boil of mystery. OOOoooooh what will happen next ...keep reading to find the answer. Just love Daryl Wood Gerber can twist the story so a reader is in to the thick of it. It is spellbinding for sure.
Shirley Sego 8:52pm September 30, 2014)

Mystery is my favorite genre. It's even better with recipes to
try out!
Bing Yuan 9:21pm September 30, 2014)

Love culinary cozies.
Mary C 9:53pm September 30, 2014)

I so enjoy the details on all of your book covers. The
black hat on the cat is great!
Sharon DiPrima 11:08pm September 30, 2014)

Love cozy mysteries!
Vicki Hancock 7:17am October 1, 2014)

Your latest book has all the ingredients that I love in a
book- (pun intended)!! The witches, recipes, and murder
mystery along with the rest of the story make this the
perfect read to usher in the Fall, and I can't wait to get a
copy of your book in my hands!! As always, the cover of
your book is outstanding, and being an owner of 2 kitties
myself, it's an added plus!! Congratulations on your book,
and I'll be looking forward to sitting here with your book
in one hand, and my hot chocolate in the other!!
Peggy Roberson 10:55am October 1, 2014)

Sounds like a great book. Love the story line.
Susan Clickner 12:00pm October 1, 2014)

These books are so much fun! Recipe for a good time :D
Michelle Brown 1:09pm October 1, 2014)

Shirley Sego, can I hire you as my publicity manager? Thank you for your pat on
the back! LOL

Daryl aka Avery
Daryl Wood Gerber 7:47pm October 1, 2014)

Peggy, do you have a delicious recipe for hot chocolate? Do you like whipped
cream on yours? I do! It's not cold in LA, but I'm thinking hot chocolate
sounds outstanding!

Hugs to all who have commented! You are so sweet to chime in.

Daryl aka Avery
Daryl Wood Gerber 7:48pm October 1, 2014)

I didn't know you were on Murder She Wrote - how exciting!
Jenne Turner 8:32pm October 1, 2014)
