Tale of Two Titles



By: Jaymie Leighton & Merry Wynter
From: Vintage Kitchen Mysteries & Merry Muffin Mysteries
Titles: Leave It to Cleaver & Muffin To Fear
Publishing dates: Mid-June & July 25th, 2017




Ladies, will you tell us your immediate plans?

Jaymie: (looking a bit shy) Well, some of it is private, for sure, with Jakob - You've met Jakob, right? Yummy looking lumberjack kind of guy, dark hair, dark eyes, beard that grows in in seconds? - but as always, I'm working on several projects including more acquisitions for the Queensville Historic Manor, and a few other jobs.

Merry: (Sighing) Funny how our guys sound a lot alike, Jaymie... yummy, dark haired, dark eyed, broad shouldered... that's my Virgil. As for me, for the foreseeable future I'll be trying to figure out how to keep an enormous American Castle afloat. The electric bill alone... sheesh!

Ladies, ladies! What about murder?

Merry: I don't think that will help keep the castle going. Unless I become a hitwoman?

Hah hah. But seriously... you've both discovered your share of dead bodies. Do you see murder in your immediate future?

Merry: Funny you should say that... like a fortune teller. Janice Grover has decided to pretend to be a fortune teller with this crazy lot of ghost hunting reality show folks who just invaded my castle. I'm just trying to survive their visit - filming things that just won't go bump in the night for them - but Janice has dressed up like some silent movie era circus gypsy.

Jaymie: (Laughing) No dead bodies I hope. I need a distraction right now because I have some exciting stuff coming up (stuff I can't share yet) so Becca and I have agreed to clear out an old house. We get to keep the pick of the vintage and antique stuff. It's a big house halfway between Queensville and Wolverhampton, but I think we're safe there... no dead bodies!

Merry: (with a sideglance) You hope. I think you may just have jinxed yourself.

Jaymie: (looking stricken) Oops. Heavens, I hope not. That's the last thing I need right now with so much else on my plate! I've got to organize my upcoming... yikes! I'd better shut my mouth.

Okay, ladies; so you won't spill the beans about what's really going on?

Jaymie & Merry: Nope.



So... readers? You'll just have to read all about Jaymie and Merry's continuing adventures in Leave It To Cleaver,  (Vintage Kitchen Mysteries #6) coming out in mid-June, and Muffin To Fear, (Merry Muffin #5) coming out July 25th!
