ARE YOU COZY? CROPS AND ROBBERS: PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY


  GIVEAWAY ENDED
CROPS AND ROBBERS
A FARMERS' MARKET MYSTERY
BY PAIGE SHELTON

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Bailey's Farmer's Market is all abuzz with the impending visit of the Central South Carolina Restaurant Association. Becca is quite excited, especially since her parents are visiting. But when the president of the Association vetoes Becca's strawberry preserves, she finds herself reeling from the snub. After pulling herself together, Becca heads home, only to find the president's body in her kitchen and her mother with bloody hands. Now, Becca has to use her sleuthing skills to get her mom out of this terrible jam...before she winds up preserving in prison. 

OTHER BOOKS IN THE FARMER'S MARKET MYSTERY SERIES:
At Gram’s Country Cooking School, Betts and Gram are helping students prepare the perfect dishes for the Southern Missouri Show-Down, the cook-off that draws the first of the summer visitors. Everything is going smoothly until they discover the body of local theater owner Everett Morningside in the school’s supply closet, and Everett’s widow points an accusatory finger at Gram. Now, Betts has to dig deep into Broken Rope’s history to find the modern-day killer—before the last piece of chicken is served...
Fruit of All Evil, March 2011
Becca Robbins sells her farm-made jams and preserves at the local farmers’ market to make a living. But when a local lovely decides to tie the knot at the same market, someone else decides to make a killing—and only Becca has the down-home know-how to shut the lid on a canny killer.
Farm Fresh Murder, April 2010
Becca Robins leads a simple life, making jams and preserves on her very own farm. But when there’s a murder in her quaint little town, she puts herself in the line of fire to defend her friend’s innocence—and goes from making jam to being in one.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: 
Paige Shelton spent lots of years in advertising but now writes novels full time. She lives in Salt Lake City, Utah, with her husband and son. When she’s up early enough, one of her favorite things is to watch the sun rise over the Wasatch Mountains.
As a kid, Paige moved around a bunch, but went to both high school and college in Des Moines, Iowa. She moved to Salt Lake City, Utah in 1988.

After college, she spent many years working in advertising, mostly for the local Salt Lake City newspapers. Her attempts to become a published writer began in 1997, but it wasn’t until 2008 that the first contracts with her agent and Berkley Prime Crime were signed. Her pile of rejections is quite impressive. You can read about Paige's "Road to Becoming a Published Author" HERE. I found it VERY inspiring!

How does the body get in her kitchen and why are her mom's hands covered in blood? I guess I'll have to read the book to find out.
