LET'S GET COZY! MUFFIN BUT MURDER: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
MUFFIN BUT MURDER
A Merry Muffin Mystery
BY VICTORIA HAMILTON

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Muffin maker Merry Wynter hopes to find a buyer for the castle she’s recently inherited. But when she throws a party to draw interest, she finds someone who’s bought the farm instead…

Merry’s career as a New York City stylist has crumbled, but her passion for muffins has helped her rise upstate in Autumn Vale. Everyone in town loves the tasty treats. Still, she would like to return to her glamorous life. Besides, the upkeep of Wynter Castle is expensive, and Merry’s cup isn’t exactly overflowing.

So in order to bring some prospective buyers into the mix, Merry whisks together a spooky soiree and decorates the castle with dashes of fabric and a sprinkling of spider webs. Friends new and old are invited, and everyone has a blast. But as the revelers empty out, Merry notices one partygoer who isn’t leaving—or breathing. Now Merry must hurry to unmask a killer before her perfect plans turn into a recipe for disaster…

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Victoria Hamilton is a pseudonym for national bestselling author Donna Lee Simpson, who is also a collector of vintage cookware and recipes.

It sounds like it would have been fun party except for the person who didn't make it. And, a great way to sell a castle. I'd like to meet the people of the town.
