LET'S GET COZY! A ROUX OF REVENGE: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
A ROUX OF REVENGE
A Soup Lover's Mystery
BY CONNIE ARCHER

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Snowflake, Vermont, is known for its skiing in winter—and its soup all year round, thanks to Lucky Jamieson’s By the Spoonful. Autumn brings golden leaves, pumpkin rice soup, the annual Harvest Festival...and murder.

Lucky’s soup shop is busier than usual this October, with groups of itinerant travelers in town to work the Harvest Festival. One newcomer seems to take a particular interest in Lucky’s young waitress, Janie, spying on her from across the street. Is the stranger stalking Janie?

After an unidentified man is found murdered in a van by the side of the road, simmering suspicions about the travelers are brought to a boil. But when Janie is put in harm’s way, Lucky must join forces with the travelers to turn up the heat on a killer...

Recipes included!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Connie Archer was born and grew up in New England, ice skating on neighborhood ponds, clamming on the beach at Cape Cod and skiing in Vermont. “I love every season in New England, but my favorite month is May when the lilacs bloom at the first sign of warmth.”

She attended Boston’s Girl’s Latin School, where she spent six years wading through Caesar’s Gallic War journals and the twelve books of the Aeneid. Happily, her life wasn’t all study. As a teenager, Connie spent her summers performing in a children’s theater troupe that traveled the suburbs of Boston, mounting productions in parks and children’s hospitals. After majoring in biology at Northeastern University, she did an about face and earned a degree in English literature. Since then she’s worked at many different jobs — laboratory technician, cocktail waitress, medical secretary, and dinner theatre actress, to name just a few.

Connie lives in Los Angeles with her family and a cat named Basil.

The sleuth Lucky went to the University of Wisconsin. I live about 20 miles from there. Under the author's tab called The Village there is a drawn map of Snowflake and all street are named after trees.
