LET'S GET COZY: IF MASHED POTATOES COULD DANCE--A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY!

GIVEAWAY ENDED 
IF MASHED POTATOES
 COULD DANCE
A Country Cooking School Mystery
BY PAIGE SHELTON

ABOUT THE BOOK:
At Gram’s Country Cooking School in Broken Rope, Missouri, Isabelle “Betts” Winston and her grandmother share the secrets of delicious home-style recipes. But there’s one secret they keep from their classes—their ability to talk to ghosts from the town’s colorful past…
Betts and Gram agree to help their friend Jake at Broken Rope’s Historical Society by accommodating some foodie tourists for the night and occupying them with cooking lessons. It couldn’t be worse timing when the pair encounter the ax-wielding ghost of Sally Swarthmore, one of Broken Rope’s legendary murderers, who pleads with Betts to help find her diary--a diary that could prove that Sally was really a victim, not a villain.
But they soon have a modern-day murder on their hands when one of the tourists turns up dead with a noose around his neck and two other tourists are nowhere to be found. Now Betts needs to put the cooking classes on the back burner to untangle two knotty mysteries and rope in a cold-blooded killer.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
As a kid, Paige moved around a bunch, but went to both high school and college in Des Moines, Iowa. 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. 

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.

+1 Paige is very interesting. I learned how she moved around from place to place growing up because of her father's job. I also read about her love of books and music. It was fun reading about the poem she wrote about a kite while a child. She loves nature too.

They are certainly busy...cooking school by day, ghosts and a murder by night. I'd love to see how they solve all of these problems.
