LET'S GET COZY! A COOKBOOK CONSPIRACY: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY


 GIVEAWAY ENDED
A COOKBOOK CONSPIRACY
A Bibliophile Mystery
BY KATE CARLISLE

ABOUT THE BOOK:
It’s a recipe for disaster when bookbinder Brooklyn Wainwright is asked to restore an antique cookbook....

Brooklyn’s sister Savannah and her former culinary school classmates all became successful chefs, especially Savannah’s ex-boyfriend Baxter Cromwell, who went on to culinary superstardom. When he invites the old gang to the gala opening of his new restaurant in San Francisco, Savannah asks Brooklyn to restore a rare antique cookbook as a present for him.

The night they all gather, Baxter is found dead, the cookbook has disappeared, and Savannah becomes the suspect du jour. But Brooklyn knows her sister is innocent, and there are plenty of old grudges simmering among this backstabbing bunch. Now she’ll have to turn up the heat on the investigation before Chef Savannah finds herself slinging hash in a prison cafeteria.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Golden Heart and Daphne du Maurier Award winning author Kate Carlisle spent over twenty years working in television production as an Associate Director for game and variety shows, including The Midnight Special, Solid Gold and The Gong Show. She traveled the world as a Dating Game chaperone and performed strange acts of silliness on The Gong Show. She also studied acting and singing, toiled in vineyards, collected books, joined a commune, sold fried chicken, modeled spring fashions and worked for a cruise ship line, but it was the year she spent in law school that finally drove her to begin writing fiction. It seemed the safest way to kill off her professors. Those professors are breathing easier now that Kate spends most of her time writing near the beach in Southern California where she lives with her perfect husband. 

A lifelong love of old books and an appreciation of the art of bookbinding led Kate to create the Bibliophile Mysteries, featuring rare book expert Brooklyn Wainwright, whose bookbinding and restoration skills invariably uncover old secrets, treachery and murder. Kate is a member of Sisters in Crime, Mystery Writers of America, International Thriller Writers and Romance Writers of America. She loves to drink good wine and watch other people cook. 

Despite the appearance of overnight success, Kate's dream of publication took many, many years to fulfill. If you're wondering why, HERE'S the real scoop. (Follow the link to see details of Kate's delightful bio with pictures on her website!)

It's set in San Francisco, one of my favorite cities. And, it revolves around food, another favorite of mine. Maybe there will be some recipes from that old cookbook. If not, at least it has a good mystery.

I like cookbooks especially old ones. Interesting that this one is supposed to be restored but disappears. I like the concept that the mystery revolves around chefs, cookbooks and food.

On her website I find the interactive map interesting. It shows all the places sleuth Brooklyn like to visit. I love that it's a google map so when I click on it , it expands to show a detailed map of Brooklyn's world.
