LET'S GET COZY! FIVE-ALARM FUDGE: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
FIVE-ALARM FUDGE
A Fudge Shop Mystery
BY CHRISTINE DeSMET

ABOUT THE BOOK:
In the newest Fudge Shop Mystery from the national bestselling author of Hot Fudge Frame-Up, Ava Oosterling is after a recipe to kill for…

It’s autumn in Fishers’ Harbor, Wisconsin, and fudge shop owner Ava Oosterling is busy preparing for the harvest festival and a visit from some royal relatives who live in Belgium. According to Ava’s grandpa, a famous divinity fudge recipe from the 1860s is hidden somewhere in a local historical church—a treat fit for a prince.

But when a fire in the church reveals the body of a murdered man, it looks like someone is willing to go to any length to possess the valuable secret to the divinity fudge. As Ava searches for the killer—and the recipe—she could use a little divine intervention, because she may have bitten off more than she can chew…

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Christine is a novelist, screenwriter, short story writer, and playwright.

She teaches writing in the Continuing Studies division of University of Wisconsin-Madison. She’s the director of the annual June “Write-by-the-Lake Writer’s Workshop & Retreat” and the fall “Weekend with Your Novel.”

She is a member of Mystery Writers of America, Sisters in Crime, Romance Writers of America, and Jewels of the Quill. She is a past Golden Heart winner and finalist (three times) in the contests sponsored by RWA. Her romantic suspense novel, Spirit Lake, won RWA’s Golden Pen Contest before the book was published by Hard Shell Word Factory/Mundania Press.

Christine also belongs to the Writers Guild of America. A screenplay written with Peggy Williams and Bob Shill, “Chinaware-Fragile,” earned first place in a Slamdance Film Festival writing contest and was optioned by New Line Cinema once upon a time. She has optioned other projects as well and continues to write scripts and stage plays.

Christine was raised on a dairy and hog farm in Wisconsin where she learned the value and joy of hard work in the out-of-doors, then graduated valedictorian in a high school class of 29 students. She went on to get her academic degrees in journalism from UW-Madison.

My mom always made really good fudge but she never gave me the recipe. So, I always have to buy my fudge. None compares to hers. I'd love to read a mystery about fudge.
