LET'S GET COZY! GLUTEN FOR PUNISHMENT: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY


 GIVEAWAY ENDED 
GLUTEN FOR PUNISHMENT
 A Baker’s Treat Mystery 
BY NANCY J. PARRA 
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Gluten-free baker Toni Ryder may not cook with wheat, but when there’s a criminal on the loose, she’ll do what it takes to figure out who has their finger in the pie...

Even though Toni is used to going against the grain by preparing allergy-safe, gluten-free products for her online bakery, Baker’s Treat, opening a storefront in the middle of wheat country Kansas might be biting off more than she can chew. The town is already skeptical of her flour-free ways, but when a local wheat farmer is murdered outside her patisserie, skepticism turns into outright suspicion.

With the help of her eccentric grandmother, her handsome lawyer, and the sexy new widower in town, Toni is determined to find the real criminal before bad publicity and increasingly personal acts of vandalism shut her down. But when another suspect winds up dead, Toni realizes that this half-baked killer isn’t just trying to get her to close shop—he’s trying to make sure that she’s made her last gluten-free cookie...forever.
 
INCLUDES GLUTEN-FREE RECIPES

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Nancy J. Parra’s discovered she had a severe gluten allergy and had to give up her second favorite passed-time, baking. Six months into her forced new diet, she was back in the kitchen figuring out how to make her own gluten-free baked goods and soon posted delicious pictures on the web. When a good friend suggested she mix her two loves—baking and writing, she wrote her first cozy mystery, GLUTEN FOR PUNISHMENT, Berkley Prime Crime May 7, 2013.

On a happy roll, she soon sold a Mackinac Island Fudge Shop Mystery series. ALL FUDGED UP (writing as Nancy CoCo) will be out November 5, 2013.

With an MA in Writing Popular Fiction, Ms. Parra has written articles on writing, and has given workshops on writing techniques to various library and writers groups. She has a blog on the art and craft of writing, www.nancyjparra.blogspot.com.

Visit her website at www.nancyjparra.com for more information, a list of her books and full reviews. She can also be found at www.facebook.com/nancyjparraauthor and would love to add you as her friend.

Sounds like a great new cozy series. Haven't seen any about a gluten free and allergy food series before. Looking forward to it.

Shocked that I am the first one to post. Where is everyone?
