LET'S GET COZY! ONE DEAD COOKIE: A PREVIEW AND A GIVEAWAY

 
GIVEAWAY ENDED
ONE DEAD COOKIE
A Cookie Cutter Shop Mystery
BY VIRGINIA LOWELL
ABOUT THE BOOK:

Olivia Greyson is the proud owner of The Gingerbread House—a quaint shop that specializes in all things cookie—and her best friend, Maddie, is her sidekick, baking up scrumptious treats for their cookie-themed parties. But a dead body on their front porch might put their bake shop in a truly sticky situation...

Olivia is busy baking up special cookies for Maddie’s upcoming engagement party when soap star Trevor Lane shows up unexpectedly in town. It soon becomes clear that Trevor, who grew up in the neighboring town of Twiterton, left behind a number of enemies with long memories. Even Trevor’s assistant and childhood friend, Dougie, seems to harbor a grudge against him.
Soon after his arrival, Trevor is found dead on The Gingerbread House porch, his handsome face branded with the image of a cookie cutter. When their friend Stacey is implicated in the murder, Olivia and Maddie rush to find the killer. Because it seems someone in Chatterley Heights has a sweet tooth for revenge..
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Hi! I'm Virginia Lowell, and Cookie Dough or Die was the first book in my Cookie Cutter Shop series. I had a great time writing the story. I mean, decorated cookies and murder, what could be more fun?
I grew up surrounded by shelves of mysteries, which my mother collected. She loved those wonderful British cozies with quirky characters, a light touch of humor, and gallons of tea. I do, too. Cookie cutters have always fascinated me, as well. They seem to have personalities of their own, and sometimes they tell a tale.

Virginia Lowell's first book in The Cookie Cutter Shop Mystery Series was COOKIE DOUGH OR DIE. To read more about Virginia Lowell and her fascination with cookie cutters, visit her website HERE.
