A Hunky Baker and Two Giveaways

By Tim Brunelle from Maddie Day's Cozy Capers Book Group Mysteries. Murder on Cape Cod went to wide release this week and is available everywhere.

Hey, Tim here. I'm the Westham, MA baker, surfer, and that guy who is head over heels for Mac Almeida. My bakery is pretty popular, and so is Breads and Brews, when I turn Greta's Grains - named for my mom - into a pop-up bar and music venue on Friday nights.

Mac always stops in for a beer, a snack, and a chance on the dance floor. But she's not really a party girl. She reads more than anyone I know, with the exception of the others in the Cozy Capers book group. Mac loves to listen to books on audio when she walks.

Her grandma Reba prefers to read on her Kindle, because she can enlarge the font for her eighty-year-old eyes. Mac is delighted the story of her first adventure into real life mystery is finally out in ebook, as an audiobook (cover above), and available for independent bookstores and libraries to stock.

Our author, Maddie Day says she'd love to give one reader who comments here a signed copy of Murder on Cape Cod, and another commenter the ARC of Murder at the Taffy Shop, which releases in late March from Barnes & Noble.

Readers: What's your favorite format for reading? (Maddie says include your email address so she can contact you if you won.) Have you already read Murder on Cape Cod?

Maddie Day creates the Country Store Mysteries and the Cozy Capers Book Group Mysteries. As Edith Maxwell, this Macavity- and Agatha-nominated author writes the Quaker Midwife Mysteries, the Local Foods Mysteries, and award-winning short crime fiction.

Maxwell/Day lives north of Boston with her beau, where she cooks, gardens, and wastes time on Facebook. She blogs here and with the other Wicked Authors. You can find her on Facebook, twitter, Instagram, and at her web site, edithmaxwell.com.

  8. I haven't had a chance yet but it is on my list to read. I didn't think I would really like an EReader, but I was wrong. It is easier to carry around and when I can't sleep I can lay in the bed and read instead of having to get up.

    Thanks for the chance to win.

  21. I read the book back in November(scored an ARC from a friend). I loved making friends with a whole new cast of characters and can't wait for the next book to appear.

    I am a Troglodyte and prefer paper over e-anything.. that aside my phone has about 300 books on it in case I'm stuck somewhere without a library or a bookstore. I've also added Murder at the Taffy Shop to my New Titles Release list for 2020.
