LET'S GET COZY! A SECOND HELPING OF MURDER: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
A SECOND HELPING OF MURDER
A Comfort Food Mystery
BY CHRISTINE WENGER

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Trixie Matkowski is warming up to running her family’s diner in the small town of Sandy Harbor in upstate New York. But the only thing more demanding than serving up piping-hot comfort food twenty-four hours a day is getting to the bottom of a double homicide....

Trixie fondly remembers summers as a child spent visiting the shores of Lake Ontario. Not much has changed—there are still vinyl booths at the Silver Bullet Diner, families eating home-cooked comfort food, and days of swimming in the lake.

But before Trixie can say “Order’s up,” someone’s summer is abruptly cut short. One of the cottage residents is found dead, and Trixie suspects the crime might be linked to an unsolved disappearance in the picturesque town’s past.

As Trixie works with Deputy Ty Brisco to solve both mysteries, their shocking discoveries will shake up the small town. And when word gets out that she’s on the case, Trixie’s in trouble—after all, the murderer won’t spare her life just because she makes a killer corned beef sandwich....

Includes Delicious Home-Style Recipes!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
I have worked in the criminal justice field for more years than I care to remember! It seems like I was forever going to school while I was working full time, but in the end, I received a dual master's degree in Probation and Parole Studies and Sociology from Fordham University.

Unfortunately, the knowledge gained from way too many years in night school, didn’t prepare me for what I love to do the most – writing romances and cozy mysteries.

I enjoy watching professional bull riding and rodeo with my favorite cowboy, my husband Jim. We put on our cowboy regalia (I look horrible in a cowboy hat!) and have traveled to events in Las Vegas, Florida, Connecticut, and other states.

As a result of our travels, I have met many genuine, personable and polite cowboys, and that’s how I get my inspiration for my westerns!

Of course I have to do research for my comfort food diner series. That takes me to diners all over the U.S. and Canada (and maybe Europe and Asia!) for meals. It’s a tough job, but I just have to do it!

Best wishes to you, and I hope you smile when you read my books!

I remember eating in diners in upstate New York many years ago. Good food. And she includes recipes in her book. Double murder that could be interesting.

The diner in the small town sounds retro. I love the vinyl booths and comfort food. Interested with the two murders. I don't recall reading a cozy mystery with two murders.

I found it interesting that she enjoys watching professional bull riding and rodeo and has her "For Fun " tab a collection of the bull riding cowboy's pictures from trips.
I am a huge dog lover so think it's sweet that she has pictures of Blondie.
