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?
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!
