By Lizzie Turner from the Ashton Corners Book Club Mysteries by Erika Chase
Hi y'all. I'm so delighted today to introduce, and do a quick quizzing, of a new stable mate. That's what I call it when my author has a new series coming out. But to make it really confusing, my author Erika, will be writing this series as Linda Wiken, which by the way, is her real name. The series is the Dinner Club Mysteries and here's her main gal, J.J. Tanner to tell us all about it.
Erika: Welcome, J.J. A dinner club series sounds real taste-tempting. Is it?
J.J.: Well, if you like cookbooks, recipes and talk about food, then yes, it is! I'll tell you a bit about it. The Culinary Capers Dinner Club meets once a month and we rotate homes.The host gets to choose a real cookbook and from it, the entree while the remaining four members choose a side dish or dessert to go with it. And of course, we get to be pretty good at solving murders, too. Because there's always one of those.
Erika: And, are there recipes?
J.J.: For sure. And I promise, no poisons are ever used in the recipes or as a murder weapon!
Erika: Where is it set?
J.J.: Well, I live in the suburbs of Burlington, VT is a small (author's note -- fictitious) village of Half Moon Bay, right on the shores of beautiful Lake Champlain.
Erika: And what do you do, besides catch killers, I mean?
J.J.: So glad you asked. I'm an event planner. Anything special coming up? I'd love to help.
Erika: Ahem, we'll have to see. One final question, what does J.J. stand for?
J.J.: Oh, my...look at the time. Gotta run! Thanks for the chat, Erika.
