Too Many Adventures

by Emily Westhill from Jealousy Filled Donuts by Ginger Bolton

We order our embroidered aprons and shirts from Willow Vanderling, who owns In Stitches in Elderberry Bay, Pennsylvania. The town's nickname is Threadville because of its crafty shops. I'd like to visit Willow and her friends some day.

I called her recently and wished her a happy Halloween.

"I hope it won't be like that one several years ago. Threadville was overrun with zombies!"

"Eeek."

"Not real ones," she assured me. "They were people dressed like zombies. They were enjoying a retreat. Their costumes and makeup were amazing."

"That sounds like fun!

"It was. A craft fair was also going on, and two of my friends, Edna and Gord, were getting married . . ."

"Did I hear the word 'but' at the end of that sentence?"

Willow sighed. "Yes. There was a murder. "


"Was it solved?"

"Yes."

"Did you help?"

"How did you guess?"

It was my time to sigh. "Because I've helped solve murders, too. On the Fourth of July, there was one here in Fallingbrook,"
 
We both agreed that we hoped there would be no more holiday murders in Threadville or Fallingbrook, and no more murders near where either of us live.
 
You can read about Willow's Halloween adventures in Night of the Living Thread by Janet Bolin and Emily's Fourth of July adventures in Jealousy Filled Donuts by Ginger Bolton.

Jealousy Filled Donuts was featured in Moderncat magazine and Tea Time Magazine, and the week  it came out, it was chosen as the week's best new cozy mystery by Woman's World.

  2. The thing I love most about Halloween is seeing all the kids enjoying themselves - the smaller the better. It's fun to see how the trend changes from decade to decade or even from year to year on what the HOT new costume is. When I was a kid, it was getting to get favorite candies that were only available during the Halloween season like the Mary Jane peanut butter kisses. Now you can find them all year, but I still usually only buy them at that time of year. Makes them special that way and brings back sweet memories.

    I think the "get scared" factor is fun if it's done according to age. Myself, I love the corn mazes, pumpkin carving and candy apple making times more than the scary things.

    Thank you for the fabulous chance to win a copy of "Night of the Living Thread".
