RECIPES TO DIE FOR 
A Victoria Square Cookbook 
BY LORRAINE BARTLETT
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Cozy readers everywhere have fallen in love with Lorraine Bartlett's A Crafty Killing and the inhabitants of Victoria Square, a charming and sometimes dangerous berg featuring one-of-a-kind businesses like Artisans Alley. In Recipes To Die For, Katie Bonner and the rest of the locals from Victoria Square invite you into their kitchens to share tantalizing recipes and intimate stories about food, family, and life. So tie on your apron and sharpen your knives, because Recipes To Die For is chock full of culinary treasures such as Andy Rust's Cinnamon Rolls, Vance Ingram's Barbequed Ribs, and Sweet Sue's Toffee Squares. And you don't want to miss Aunt Lizzie's Cream Scones. They're to die for!

PRAISE FOR AUTHOR LORRAINE BARTLETT'S VICTORIA SQUARE:
"With a cast of personable characters, and a lively, fast-paced storyline, readers will be enthralled and delighted with this fresh new series."-Fresh Fiction

"Bartlett has crafted an ingenious venue for her wonderful new series."
-Mystery Scene Magazine

"A cast of charming characters...readers will look forward to more with Katie and the artisans from Artisans Alley."
-The Mystery Reader

It doesn't get any better than this! We already love Lorraine Bartlett's books, but now, sharing recipes from her Artisan's Alley series, she's really outdone herself. These are wonderful, real, delicious recipes to enjoy while we read her fabulous stories. Well done!--Julie Hyzy, bestselling author of the Manor House Mysteries and White House Mystery series 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
A native of Rochester, NY, Lorraine Bartlett honed her characterization and plotting skills writing short stories for magazines and was a finalist in the St. Martin's/Malice Domestic contest.
 

Ms. Bartlett also writes the New York Times Bestselling and Agatha-nominated Booktown Mystery series under the name of Lorna Barrett. Bookplate Special, the third book in the series, was nominated for an Agatha Award for best novel of 2009. As L.L. Bartlett, she writes the Jeff Resnick Mysteries.

SAMPLE RECIPE FROM RECIPES TO DIE FOR: 
Tea Time With Katie
 For years, Katie Bonner had planned to open her own bed and breakfast -- The English Ivy Inn ... but things didn't work out that way, and now she manages Artisans Alley on quaint Victoria Square.

Part of Katie's plan for the business was to serve afternoon tea in the lovely parlor of her Victorian home for her guests, and to book parties for bridal showers, baby showers, and other special occasions.  She collected quite a few recipes, as well as vintage china, linens, and silverware.

In RECIPES TO DIE FOR, Katie shares her hopes and dreams for her English Ivy Inn and some of the recipes, too!  Such as....
Great Aunt Lizzie's Cream Scones

Ingredients:
2 cups sifted cake flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons sugar
4 tablespoons butter
1 egg and 1 egg yolk well beaten
1/3 cup light cream

sugar

Directions:
--Preheat oven to 450°. 
--Sift flour once. Measure, add baking powder, salt, and sugar, and sift again.

--Turn out on slightly floured board and knead 30 seconds. 
--Roll ½ inch thick and cut in triangles. 
--Place on ungreased baking sheet. 
--Brush tops lightly with egg white, and sprinkle with sugar.
