A RENAISSANCE FAIRE MYSTERY
BY JOYCE AND JIM LAVENE
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Dark, Unsweetened Death
Life in Renaissance Faire Village is pretty sweet for Jessie Morton - until one of the Three Chocolatiers is found drowned in a vat of chocolate.
A hat pin sticking in his eye seems to pin the murder on hatmaker Andre Hariot. But he is only one on a long list of Village folk who might have wanted to see the Chocolatier dead.
As Andre's apprentice, Jessie feels a special obligation to clear Andre and bring at least semisweet justice to the killer.
PRAISE FOR HARROWING HATS:"Offers a vibrant background for the mysterious goings-on and the colorful cast of characters.”
—Kaye Morgan, author of Celebrity Sudoku
“Jolly. . . . serves up medieval murder and mayhem.”
“Part of the fun of this solid whodunit is the vivid description of the Renaissance Village; anyone who has not been to one will want to go . . . Cleverly developed.”
—Midwest Book Review
“Joyce and Jim Lavene have teamed up for yet another terrific mystery series . . . A feast for the reader . . . Character development in this new series is energetic and eloquent; Jessie is charming and intelligent, with . . . saucy strength.”
“A promising new series set at a Renaissance Faire . . . Interesting juxtaposition between the present and the past and the real and the fantastic . . . Entertaining and vivacious characters.”
“I cannot imagine a cozier setting than Renaissance Faire Village, a closed community of rather eccentric—and very interesting—characters, [with] lots of potential . . . A great start to a new series by a veteran duo of mystery authors.”
