LET'S GET COZY! CRIME RIB: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
CRIME RIB
A Food Lovers' Village Mystery
BY LESLIE BUDEWITZ

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Gourmet food market owner Erin Murphy is determined to get Jewel Bay, Montana’s, scrumptious local fare some national attention. But her scheme for culinary celebrity goes up in flames when the town’s big break is interrupted by murder . . .

Food Preneurs, one of the hottest cooking shows on TV, has decided to feature Jewel Bay in an upcoming episode, and everyone in town is preparing for their close-ups, including the crew at the Glacier Mercantile, aka the Merc. Not only is Erin busy remodeling her courtyard into a relaxing dining area, she’s organizing a steak-cooking competition between three of Jewel Bay’s hottest chefs to be featured on the program.

But Erin’s plans get scorched when one of the contending cooks is found dead. With all the drama going on behind the scenes, it’s hard to figure out who didn’t have a motive to off the saucy contestant. Now, to keep the town’s reputation from crashing and burning on national television, Erin will have to grill some suspects to smoke out the killer . . .

INCLUDES DELICIOUS RECIPES! (Be sure and visit Leslie's website HERE for some great recipes including "Erin's Two Bean and Pesto Salad")

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Leslie Budewitz blends her passion for food, great mysteries, and her native Montana in The Food Lovers’ Village Mysteries for Berkley Prime Crime. New York Times best-selling mystery writer Sofie Kelly calls it “A delicious new series.” Award-winning author Hank Phillippi Ryan says of Death al Dente, first in the series, “Clever, charming and completely yummy.”

Leslie is also a lawyer. She graduated from Notre Dame Law School, practiced in Seattle for several years, then returned to Montana, where she still practices civil litigation and employment law. Her first book, Books, Crooks & Counselors: How to Write Accurately About Criminal Law and Courtroom Procedure, won the 2011 Agatha Award for Best Nonfiction and was nominated for the 2012 Anthony and Macavity awards.

A true believer in the power of writers helping other writers, Leslie is an active member of Sisters in Crime and is a founding member of the SinC chapter for new and unpublished writers, the Guppies. She is also a member of Mystery Writers of America, the Authors of the Flathead, and Montana Women Writers.

Leslie loves to cook, eat, hike, travel, garden, and paint—not necessarily in that order. She lives in northwest Montana with her husband, Don Beans, a musician, writer, and doctor of natural medicine, and their Burmese cat, Ruff, an avid bird watcher.

PRAISE FOR CRIME RIB:

"Leslie Budewitz has cooked up another exciting and scrumptious mystery with Crime Rib, the second book in her clever new series about small-town chef Erin Murphy, who’s sleuthing skills are matched only by her gourmet cooking. With a well-crafted plot, believably eccentric characters, and a flowing style, Crime Rib is a mystery to be savored. And if that’s not enough, there’s a special selection of Erin’s recipes at the end. Chocolate mousse cups! Mmmmmm… " --John Clement, author of the Dixie Hemingway Mysteries

“Budewitz’s latest is deliciously appealing. A strong sense of community among the villagers creates a feel-good setting. … Erin is a spunky and tenacious heroine and a fighter who won’t let anyone bring down her business or her beloved village. Cozy mystery lovers and foodies alike will enjoy this story of good neighbors, luscious food, and a bag egg (or two) who is capable of murder.” --RT Book Reviews
