To purchase a copy of A Spicy Secret, book #22 in the Annie’s Attic Mystery series, just email me your contact information, and I’ll get back with you on price and shipping costs. Autographs are free.
(Note: Since the book is part of a series, it’s available by subscription only, and you won’t find it in stores. I’ll have copies available for sale for a limited time.)
I seriously never thought I’d hold a book in my hands that I wrote. (Well, I wrote the vast majority of it – editors changed a few things, as well they should. And of course, since it’s part of a series, I had to use the existing characters. But the story and voice are all mine.)
Oh, and by the way, this is an absolutely gorgeous book. I’m not kidding. It’s hardbound, stitched (not glued), and has a lovely matching ribbon bookmark. And I had nothing to do with the gorgeous cover that happens to match my site… other than the fact that the designers perfectly captured the core items in the mystery.
So, what is this book about, you may ask? It’s a cozy mystery… Since I’m lazy, I’ll just copy the description on the inside of the cover:
Alice MacFarlane is known far and wide for her baking skills, but her mojo has suddenly gone missing. It all started with the discovery of a jar full of recipes beneath the floor of the carriage house she calls home. Alice, ever the adventurer, decides to give the recipe a try.
The results have been mixed at best. The first dish is downright repulsive, and now Gwendolyn Palmer, one of Alice’s friends from the Hook and Needle Club, is in the ICU – and Alice can’t help but believe that her latest dish from the mysterious recipes may be to blame.
Alice’s home shares a scenic hillside vista with Grey Gables, the stately Victorian home owned by Annie Dawson, Alice’s best friend.
Now Annie must help Alice find out where the recipes came from, and if there is some kind of dark secret associated with them.
At the same time, the Hook and Needle Club has taken on a gargantuan task – to provide handmade blankets for each resident of an orphanage in Haiti. The work must be completed in time for a mission trip let by Reverend Roy Wallace, pastor of Stony Point Community Church. “Blanket Haiti” is one of the most ambitious projects undertaken by the club, known for its charitable works.
But the project is complicated by the illness of Gwen – and Alice’s fear that she is somehow to blame. With the help of their Hook and Needle comrades, Alice and Annie set out to discover the truth behind the mysterious spicy secret.
