Did Somebody Say Taffy?
Our author has a new book coming out - and it's set right at Salty Taffy's, my candy shop in Westham, on Cape Cod. Bike shop proprietor Mac Almeida and I go for a brisk walk on the rail trail every weekday morning. Boy, did we get a shock last August when we found a woman lying dead in the path between my shop and the health clinic next door.
It was even more of a shock to learn she'd been murdered - and for ME to be accused of doing it! Sure, I'd brought a box of chocolates to a dinner at her house the night before. And the victim wasn't the nicest of people. But I'd never wish death on her.
I was grateful for Mac's help, and the rest of the Cozy Capers book group members pitched in, too, to clear my name. You can read all about it in Murder at the Taffy Shop, which releases March 31 in a one-year paperback exclusive with Barnes & Noble.
And Maddie says she'll send her very last ARC to one commenter here!
