LET'S GET COZY! ALLERGIC TO DEATH: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
ALLERGIC TO DEATH 
A Gourmet De-Lite Mystery #1 
BY PEG COCHRAN
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Preparing calorie-conscious meals for the dieters of Woodstone, Connecticut, Gigi Fitzgerald knows a cheater when she sees one. And when murder is on the menu, she's ready to get the skinny on whodunit...

Business is looking up for Gigi's Gourmet De-Lite, thanks to her newest client, restaurant reviewer Martha Bernhardt. Martha has the clout to put Gigi's personal meal plans on everyone's lips. But instead of dropping a few pounds, Martha drops dead from a severe peanut allergy...right after eating one of Gigi's signature dishes.

When the distractingly debonair Detective Mertz identifies traces of peanut oil in Martha's last meal, Gigi suddenly finds her diet catering business on the chopping block. Now she'll have to track down who tampered with her recipe before her own goose is cooked.

Includes delicious--and healthy--recipes!

SOME INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT GIGI FITZGERALD, MAIN CHARACTER IN ALLERGIC TO DEATH:
Favorite sinful indulgence:  Strawberry Twizzlers.  I can’t resist them.
Favorite saying: I have an Irish temper and an Italian attitude.
Favorite healthy food:  Avocados.  I love them sliced on a turkey or tuna sandwich.
Habit you’d most like to break: Blushing!   It’s hard keeping a poker face when that face is bright red!
Dream for the future:  To fall in love again.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Peg grew up in a New Jersey suburb about 25 miles outside of New York City.  After college, she moved to the City where she managed an art gallery owned by the son of the artist Henri Matisse.  When her first daughter, Francesca, arrived, the new family moved back to the New Jersey suburbs where her second daughter, Annabelle, was born.

After her husband died, Peg remarried and her new husband took a job in Grand Rapids, MI where they now live (on exile from NJ, she likes to joke).  Peg managed to segue from the art world to marketing and is now the manager of marketing communications for a company that provides services to seniors.

Her greatest love though has always been writing-particularly mysteries!  She has two cozy mystery series debuting from Berkley Prime Crime-the Gourmet De-Lite series set in Connecticut and featuring Gigi Fitzgerald who provides gourmet diet meals to a select group of clients, and the Sweet Nothings Vintage Lingerie series, written as Meg London, set in Paris, TN with Emma Taylor who finds murder and mayhem in this quiet country town.

As for pets - she has a schizophrenic cat (really) named Frazzle and a Westhighland White Terrier, Reggie, who is desperately in need of losing a few pounds.  But you know what they say:  If your dog is overweight, it means YOU aren't getting enough exercise!

When she's not writing, Peg can usually be found cooking, which she loves.  When asked to bring a dish to a potluck she invariably opts to bring dessert - partly because she loves making sweet dishes and partly because she and her husband always manage to be late so there's no point in putting them in charge of the appetizer!

Peg loves connecting with readers and other writers so feel free to drop her an email! And be sure to visit her other website for Meg London.

Gourmet diet meals - that sounds like heaven considering how the frozen stuff in the store tastes! This should be a great new cozy series, especially since the author loves to cook!
