Hello! I'm so happy to see you! I've been busy for a while... I haven't seen most of you for... oh, a couple of years, at least!
And a lot has happened. When last we talked, (Muffin To Fear - July 2017) you knew I got married, and came home to a weird mix of ghost hunters in my honest-to-goodness American castle I inherited from my great uncle Melvyn Wynter a few years ago. And you knew that Virgil and I planned to move out of the castle to a home of our own on the property, a wonderful Craftsman style bungalow that we saved from destruction in Autumn Vale and moved to the back of my property, near the Fairy Tale Forest.
Well... it's wonderful. And I still get to see Pish every day, as he lives in the castle - alone most of the time; gosh, I wish he had someone! - because I still bake my muffins in the commercial kitchen in the castle.
But we have big plans... HUGE plans! And I'm ready to reveal them. Soon. Very soon.
There are a few snags, and of course real life gets in the way... there is this local problem of some missing girls - Virgil and Dewayne are working with Sheriff Urquhart on it - and a kind of religious cult that isn't really a religion at all, and it's terribly upsetting. I hope... I truly hope there is nothing wrong there, and I hope they are found safely.
However, focusing on the positive... I'm curious... what do you do when you have big plans that you're ready to reveal to friends, family and the world? Do you gather everyone together and make a big announcement? Have a party, and reveal it then? Or quietly tell a select few first, let the word leak out, then announce it to the wider world?
What's your method for announcing something BIG?
About Muffin But Trouble:
In the new Merry Muffin Mystery from the author of Muffin to Fear, baker Merry Wynter must confront a spiritual guru who may be up to something far from heavenly . . .
With plans for a new performing arts center at Wynter Castle taking up all her time, baker Merry Wynter has been all but unaware of the fringe group compound near her small town—until a street preacher accosts her with taunts of doom and damnation. When she learns close friends may have fallen prey to the lure of the group Merry, worried for their wellbeing, begins digging into the Light and the Way Ministry and its charismatic leader. She fears they may have ties to the recent death of a young woman and the disappearance of many others.
With her rebellious teen sidekick Lizzie Proctor, Merry steps in to investigate the eerily submissive community and its misguided members, concerned that their friends are being led terribly astray by a sect that has little to do with real faith, and everything to do with mind control. When another young woman vanishes and Merry realizes their friends are in danger, she will stop at nothing to uncover the group’s sinister secrets before the murderous ministry can strike again . . .
Includes tasty baking recipes!
