What would you do if the man who murdered your friend were eligible for parole?
As Katy McKenna struggles to rebuild the successful career she suspended to chase her cheating exe’s dreams, her life suddenly takes a dramatic turn when she stumbles upon a newspaper story about the upcoming parole hearing for the man who raped, kidnapped, and murdered her high school friend, sixteen years ago.
Fearing he could soon be set free to prey on other innocent young girls, Katy sets out to make sure this doesn’t happen, not realizing she might not survive to blog about it.
Sometimes, doing the right thing can get you dead.
Better Dead Than Wed
#2 in the Murder Blog Mysteries
Katy McKenna has had enough near-death experiences and heartache to last a lifetime. Now all she wants to do is get her career back on track, find a nice guy, and live happily-ever-after. But when she hears about a man maliciously exposing innocent young women to HIV, she is compelled to put her plans on hold to stop him.
Meanwhile, Katy’s mother is forced to reveal a shattering childhood trauma that has come back to haunt her; her obnoxious baby sister is moving in, and her scuzzy was-band is stalking her.
And she’s beginning to wonder why every rotten person she has recently heard about has suddenly dropped dead.
Is it divine providence? Or is it murder?
Shortly after I published Dead Girls Don’t Blog I was asked to contribute two recipes to this wonderful cookbook by Nancy Lynn Jarvis. I was thrilled!
Every recipe I’ve tried has been delicious.
What happens when 128 cozy mystery writers get together to do a cookbook? You get more than 220 recipes that are as varied and interesting as an amateur sleuth’s day job.
Regional recipes come from every part of the United States and England — a couple find their way from Australia and Italy, too — and from diverse times. There are recipes from people looking to keep gluten out of their lives, eat vegetarian, or make a treat or two for their furry four-legged friends. And yes, there are recipes that appeal to the sweet tooth, lots of them, in fact.
There’s no mystery about what happens when cozy writers get together. They bring the wit, inventiveness, and adventure found in their books right along with their recipes.
The recipes are introduced by their authors and linked to the writer bios in the back of the book.
You can look up your favorite cozy writer and see which recipes are their favorites; they’ll tell you what the recipe means to them. Or you can enjoy a dish and then link to the recipe’s author’s biography and books.
Either way you enjoy the cookbook, you’re sure to find great new recipes to make and terrific new cozy authors to read.
