LET'S GET COZY! DEATH OF AN ENGLISH MUFFIN: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
DEATH OF AN ENGLISH MUFFIN
A Merry Muffin Mystery
BY VICTORIA HAMILTON

ABOUT THE BOOK:
From the national bestselling author of Muffin but Murder, baker Merry Wynter returns with a fresh tray of muffins and a case that has authorities stumped…

They say one’s home is one’s castle, but when it comes to Wynter Castle, Merry would like it to belong to someone else. But until a buyer bites, she could use some extra dough, so she decides to take in renters. The idea pans out, and Merry’s able to find a handful of tenants eager to live in a real castle. The only problem is most of them are crumby, tea-swilling old biddies.

The Legion of Horrible Ladies, as Merry calls them, is led by the terribly nasty—and fabulously wealthy—Cleta Sanson. The abrasive Englishwoman keeps everyone whipped into a frenzy—until she meets an embarrassing end behind a locked door. Evidence reveals that Cleta was murdered, yet no one is privy to how the deed was done. Merry knows she must quickly find the killer before another of her guests gets greased…

INCLUDES DELICIOUS 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

Death of an English Muffin sounds awesome for the story is set in a castle! (How cool is that?) I am looking forward to reading just how Cleta Sanson meets her end behind a locked door. Thank you for the giveaway.

I didn't realize how many books and pseudonyms the author Donna Lee Simpson has. I did enjoy her lovely website, and how the book series are featured.

I am curious about what it would be like to live in castle. My guess is that there is no central heating or air conditioning and that it would be a beast to clean. But other that wouldn't it be a great place to explore?

I love a "And Then There Were None" premise of a bunch of people in an old house. I'm sitting here eating a bakery English muffin with homemade orange marmalade and saw this on Bloglovin', so of course I had to come check it out. Sounds like an author I would enjoy.

I think it must be hard to sell a castle and cost a fortune in upkeep. So, renting out rooms is a must. And who but old biddies would want to stay there? But, how to get killed behind a locked door? And, by whom? Sounds interesting. Count me in, please.
