Susanna Edgerton here. I hope you remember me. I sort of pop up here and there in the Soup Lover’s Mysteries. I know I’m not a terribly important character, but I can say I’m a big support to my husband, Nate Edgerton, who’s the Chief of Police in the village.
Nate does tell me quite a bit about his work. He’s not supposed to, I know, but I manage to get him to talk about things. And he always makes me swear to not breathe a word. I can never let on what I know about the latest crimes. See, I do think it’s important he has someone to really talk to because he’s in charge of solving all the murders in our little town. And Lord knows, we do have a lot of murders to solve.
Between you and me, I think Lucky Jamieson gets far too much credit for her sleuthing. Frankly, she’s really good at sticking her nose in where it doesn’t belong, but she certainly wouldn’t be able to do what she does if it wasn’t for my husband. He is the law in Snowflake, Vermont.
But all that’s beside the point. That’s not why I’m here today. You see, there’s a really exciting event going to happen in Snowflake soon – well, just a little over two months from now. A very famous mystery writer, Hilary Stone, is coming to town. You know who she is, don’t you?
You don’t??? Well, let me tell you! She’s the author of Murder Comes Calling and it’s an international best seller and she, Hilary, I mean, she is actually going to visit our village. Can you believe that? Hilary Stone is coming to our little spot on the earth and people will be arriving from all over Vermont and places beyond to buy her book and meet her.
We, and by we I mean all the mystery lovers for miles around, will be ready for her. We’re all so excited and I for one can hardly wait. My husband Nate isn’t too thrilled about all this. He always sees the downside in everything. Maybe it’s from years of being a cop, but he’s always expecting trouble. I’m not worried though. We’ve had our share of murders. What are the odds that anything like that could happen again? I do hope you’ll be visiting our town when the big event happens in A Clue in the Stew.
I’m sure nothing could possibly go wrong.
