Release of Gluten-Free Murder and other Awesome New Releases

It’s a new release round-up!

I am so excited to kick off my first cozy mystery series. While I’ve been flexing my mystery muscles recently with books such as The Girl in the Morgue and She Wore Mourning, the Auntie Clem’s Bakery series has a different vibe. A little lighter and more fun, with animal antics and delicious baking as a counterpoint to the murder investigations. Gluten-Free Murder is the first of three books and two shorts stories to get this series off and running!

Murder by Muffin?

Erin Price moves to Eagle Falls, a place where everyone knows everyone as well as everyone else’s business, taking over the store left to her by her aunt to start up a gluten-free bakery. The grand opening is marred by just one thing, the death of her business rival, Angela Plaint. It appears that Angela was poisoned by one of Erin’s cupcakes, making her a prime suspect.

Equipped with cupcakes, her desire for the truth, and new bakery assistant Vicky’s help, Erin goes head-to-head against Detective Terry Piper to solve the murder. Rumors of treasure hunting, drug dealing, and a missing boy swirl around Eagle Falls as Erin tries to sort the clues from the red herrings and find the killer before the killer can take care of her.
