Peg Cochran's Cranberry Cove series
You haven’t met me yet, but you will soon. I’m going to be the star of the Cranberry Cove series which debuts in August 2015. I ran a small café in Chicago for a couple of years, but when a big chain coffee bar moved in across the street, I went out of business. My stepbrother Jeff needed help on his cranberry farm in Michigan so I packed up my bags and headed to the mitten state.
Cranberries are a lot of work year round—sanding the bogs in the winter, fertilizing in the spring, keeping the weeds down in the summer and finally harvesting in the fall. Seeing all the cranberries float to the top of the bog after it’s flooded is a beautiful sight—the colors are so rich. The berries appear red, but if you look closely, you will see all shades from light pink to almost black.
Cranberry Cove is a charming town right on Lake Michigan with a horseshoe-shaped harbor and lovely beach. Pastel colored shops line Beach Hollow Road—most of them are for the tourists who flood the town in the summer. The locals hang out at the Cranberry Cove Diner, and I love Book ‘Em, a bookstore devoted to mysteries.
You wouldn’t think an idyllic town like this would give rise to murder, would you?
Author’s note: We are still working on a title for the first book, and I will keep you posted! The Cranberry Cove series debuts in August of 2015. Meanwhile, if you enjoy culinary mysteries, I write the Gourmet De-Lite series set in Connecticut, and under my pen name of Meg London, the Sweet Nothings Lingerie series set in Tennessee. My e-book series “The Lucille Series” is available for all platforms and features middle-aged Jersey housewife Lucille Mazzarella.
