LET'S GET COZY! BASKET CASE: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
BASKET CASE
A Silver Six Mystery
BY NANCY HADDOCK

ABOUT THE BOOK:
First in a crafty new cozy mystery series from national bestselling author Nancy Haddock

There isn’t much crime in Lilyvale, Arkansas, but local authorities have their hands full with Ms. Sherry Mae Stanton Cutler and her housemates—a crafty group of retirees who’ve dubbed themselves the Silver Six. But when Sherry Mae’s niece, Nixy, arrives to keep them in line, Lilyvale also plays host to a killer.

When Leslee Stanton “Nixy” Nix gets the latest call from Lilyvale detective Eric Shoar, she knows it means trouble. There’s been another kitchen explosion at her Aunt Sherry’s farmhouse, and the dreamy-voiced detective has had enough. If Nixy doesn’t check on her aunt in person, the Silver Six could become wards of the court. But the trouble Nixy finds in Lilyvale is not at all what she expects.

The seniors are hosting a folk art festival at the farmhouse, featuring Sherry’s hand-woven baskets, when land developer Jill Elsman arrives to bully Nixy’s aunt into selling the property. When Jill is later found dead in the cemetery, Sherry is suspected of weaving a murder plot, and it’s up to Nixy and the Silver Six to untangle the truth.
 
Recipes and crafting tip included!

Basket Case sounds like a fun cozy mystery! The Silver Six sounds like a humorous bunch of corky characters that will add to the story. The cover is very pretty.

With my silver hair, I'd fit right in with the Silver Six but they'd have to rename. They sound like a fun bunch. I'd love to read about their exploits.
