New Year, new mystery to solve

Hello, Mal here from the Candy Coated Series. We have a new story out this year. Here's the cover. I think they've captured me well. What do you think?

Well, our writer just moved and as she unpacks she's discovered she has some books to give away. Leave a comment with a sailing story and she will pick two winners to receive a copy of :Oh Say Can You Fudge."

Happy New Year!

  1. Growing up we would visit my aunt and uncle who lived in Connecticut, near the LI Sound. They had a small sail boat and a small motor boat. I really enjoyed sailing.

  2. Mal,you look so cute. I think I've only been on a sailboat once. It was on a date years ago and we were out on beautiful Lake Michigan. I have taken the ferry many times to Mackinac Island. I'm from Michigan and Mackinac Island is a favorite stop when we vacation in the UP. Love this series.

  3. Everyone got to go sailing but me, when it was my turn it started raining. I love sailing, have been many times but the one time I didn't get to sticks in my mind more than the times I did. saracarver07@gmail.com

  4. I loved "Oh, Say Can You Fudge"! I've never gone sailing. It looks like great fun. But my husband has a motor boat for fishing. It's a great place to read a book.

  7. I lived in Wilmington for many years. We used to kayak around the sounds as often as we could. I always wanted a day sailer, but never did get one. So I have no sailing stories to share. I love the cover!

  9. I was sailing on a short ferry ride to Nova Scotia, when I was a child and was running around getting into things. I was running full speed when a crew member carrying a metal garbage can (at my head level) turned towards me, and I ran straight into it.
    I knocked myself out and came around when we docked. Talk about missing the ride!
    Thanks for the chance!

  11. I went sailing once and it was rough seas and the sails were filled and the boat was tipping. It was great.

  13. As a fun adventure during my trip to Eygpt, I sailed the Nile in a felucca. It was marvelous! We caught the wind, and it seemed as if we were going 100 mph. We slowed down and enjoyed seeing Aga Khan tomb on the hill, women washing clothes on the bank, kids running and playing in the water, and a small herd of water buffalo drinking. I loved it! kat8762@aol.com

  14. Sadly, I get seasick and don't swim, so I doubt I would try out a sailboat! Congrats on the cute cover and the release!

    Mal, you look like you are having a great time on the sail boat. I have never been on a sailboat but it looks like fun.

  18. At camp one summer, a friend and I entered a sailing race. Having no idea what we were doing, we kept moving the sail back and forth. The strange thing was we kept catching the wind and by zigzagging actually won! cheers@marjimmanor.com

  22. I was invited to sail on Lake Ontario years ago and that was a failure. Felt dreadful the entire time. I can go out on a motorboat, fish and row but not sail. Many thanks. elliotbencan(at)hotmail(dot)com

  23. Oh goodness we went to the BVI several years ago and during the trip the people who invited us asked us to go aboard a sailboat and we would go out for a couple of house. Well we live so close to the Mississippi River and there is a marina there that my brother-in-law used to own and my husband used to help out when he needed him. On this afternoon there were several people and the skipper asked for a volunteer and noone did but guess who my husband so I was sitting on the edge and he asked my husband "Do you know what to do" of course my husband had never been on a sailboat as I had when I lived in Calif. So the entire time i sat hunched over and it is a good thing i did as when my husband had to turn the sail it went right over my head he had no clue how many times if my body wasn't hunched over how many times he would of hit me .. We got done after hours and i could hardly stand up and he thought i was sick and when the skipper came over he said "I know what is wrong with her" my husband gave him a dirty type of look he told him how many times he almost beheaded and almost hit me. My husband looked in horror and i had to explain how it works and i sat him where i was. He said "Why didn;t I move" I said the boat was going and i wanted to make sure noone else sat there as I knew he didn't know what he was doing!

  24. Happy New Year and good luck with the move! I've only been sailing once, but it was for a whole weekend. It was total delight. Sleeping quarters and the galley were surely tight, but the open air more than made up for all that! Would go again in a heartbeat.

  28. I grew up sailing on St. Croix. Before I could drive, my sunfish took me all over the island. I loved it.

  31. We visited relatives in CA. They suggested we go out to Catalina. My younger sister and 2 cousins decided to fish on the way over. she caught a small fish. she looked at it a moment, then started to get upset about it, so Sonny took it off the hook and put it back in the water. It's been 30 years and she still gets teased about that. It is one of many anecdotes told at family reunions. She had a tendency to get into quite a few things. Always provided a laugh. It's a good thing she can laugh at herself. Della at deepotter@peoplepc.com Love the cover. And it sounds like a good read.
