Wild Turkeys Couldn't Tear Me Away...

By: Jaymie Leighton
From: Vintage Kitchen Mysteries
Title: White Colander Crime
Pub. Date: November 3rd, 2015

It's almost Thanksgiving, my second of the year, actually. Some of my family live in Canada, so we already gathered there and ate turkey on October 12th, while we made our Christmas plans. We're hoping this year that Grandma Leighton can make it to Queensville before Christmas to see the house (in which she was a young bride and mother for so long) and maybe even visit with old friends.

And me? Since I've already done the family Thanksgiving thing, American Thanksgiving this week will be spent with friends, all us 'singletons' (as Bridget Jones calls it) and a few couples. Wine, good food, treats, some bad karaoke... wild turkeys couldn't tear me away from the fun!

As long as murder doesn't get in the way... you know, it has a nasty habit of doing that to me.

So, what will you be doing for Thanksgiving? Celebrating with family? Friends?

About White Colander Crime:

In the new Vintage Kitchen Mystery from the author of No Mallets Intended, the Heritage Society is re-creating a perfect Victorian Christmas—until good tidings go bad...

Queensville has great expectations for their Dickens Days festival. A tourist-trade boom means a big turnout for the opening of Queensville Historic Manor and for Jaymie Leighton, food columnist and vintage cookware collector, a chance to promote the manor and give away homemade goodies.  At the end of a long day of festival fun, Jaymie discovers the battered body of local woman Shelby Fretter.

Shelby predicted her own murder in journal entries—and all clues point to Cody Wainwright, the troubled son of Jaymie’s beleaguered newspaper editor. But considering the entire Fretter family had its share of dirty secrets, Jaymie’s not convinced  by the case against Cody. With twists all over, she’s going to have to work like the Dickens to wrap up this investigation before Christmas—especially with the real killer ready to kill again.

INCLUDES A RECIPE!


Giveaway open to Canadian AND US addresses... comment here before Midnight, November 21st to enter to win a copy of No Mallets Intended (which has the approach to Thanksgiving!) and White Colander Crime, which takes place between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

  26. I love VictorIa' s books so this is very exciting. It will be a quiet Thanksgiving with just my husband James and our cockatiel, Speckles. He loves to taste a bit of our food and I think he will really love the sweet potatoes; It is a big change from when I just to get up at 5 in the morning to put the turkey in the oven and prepare the dressing and pies!
