LET'S GET COZY! NO MALLETS INTENDED: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
NO MALLETS INTENDED
A Vintage Kitchen Mystery
BY VICTORIA HAMILTON

ABOUT THE BOOK:
TO THE MANOR DEAD

The Queensville Heritage Society is restoring the once-grand Dumpe Manor. While Dumpe relatives and society members use the occasion to dust off old grudges, Jaymie Leighton prefers to adorn the kitchen with authentic Depression Era furnishings. A collection of vintage wooden mallets found in the house is a perfect addition to her display, but one also offers a late-night intruder the perfect weapon to knock Jaymie unconscious before escaping.

Though the attack has everyone on edge, nothing is missing from the house. Perhaps it was merely a vagrant who thought the place was still abandoned. But when Dumpe Manor’s resident historian is murdered with a mallet from the same collection, it’s time for Jaymie to turn up the heat on the investigation before someone else becomes history.

Includes recipes!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Pseudonym: Amanda Cooper.

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

"There was never a time when I didn't want to be a writer, and it was how I always defined myself. But even when I wasn't writing -- which at first was most of the time! -- I was reading. Since the moment my mom handed me an Agatha Christie book when I was twelve, I've been a devoted mystery fan, and the passion lives on!

It may seem odd, then, that I started my writing career as a Regency romance author, gradually moving to the paranormal romance, and then historical mystery writing. I truly enjoyed my time writing romance, and I believe that it was the perfect training ground to force me to focus on creating character.

But the urge to write and become published in mysterty still held me captive. I finally achieved my life's dream with the publication of the first Vintage Kitchen Mystery: A Deadly Grind, in May of 2012." TO FINISH READING ABOUT THIS TALENTED AUTHOR, GO TO HER WEBSITE "BIO" HERE.

I can't say my kitchen stuff is vintage; to me it's just old. Unless 60s stuff is now called vintage. I do have some serious antique pieces, too. The book sounds like fun.
