LET'S GET COZY! TRICK OR DEADLY TREAT: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
TRICK OR DEADLY TREAT
A Fresh-Baked Mystery
BY LIVIA J. WASHBURN

ABOUT THE BOOK:
It’s Halloween in Weatherford, Texas—which means Phyllis Newsom is baking up a storm of yummy seasonal treats…but she’s about to get even busier unmasking a killer.

While Phyllis and her friend Carolyn are preparing for a baking contest, her housemate Sam adopts Buck, an adorable Dalmatian who was hit by a car. To thank local veterinarian Hank Baxter for helping the dog, Phyllis and Carolyn bake a batch of doggie treats for his other four-legged patients.

But when they arrive at the clinic, the vet is in the process of being arrested—for the murder of his wife! Convinced that the police are barking up the wrong tree and that someone’s been burying evidence, Sam begs Phyllis to help find the real killer. Joined by Buck, the friends engage in a dogged pursuit of the murderer, who will stop at nothing to muzzle them…permanently.
 
Includes Recipes

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Under the names Livia J. Washburn and L.J. Washburn, Livia Reasoner has been writing award-winning, critically acclaimed mystery, western, romance, and historical novels for almost thirty years. She began to write in collaboration with her husband, author James Reasoner, and soon branched out into telling her own stories.

In addition to writing, Livia enjoys photography, arts, crafts, and cooking, but she also loves having a pile of lumber, a circular saw, and a building project. An accomplished carpenter, she has framed houses and built more sets of bookshelves than she can remember, some of which have been filled with the books she’s written. A good day for her includes having time to create something new in the kitchen, on a story, and in the garage.

Livia lives in the Texas countryside with her husband, and her dogs. She blogs when she can find the time at http://liviajwashburn.blogspot.com.

I enjoy reading holiday themed cozies, and Halloween just makes a mystery even more special. TRICK OR DEADLY TREAT sounds like a fun mystery, and the cover is just too darn cute! (Love it!) Thank you for introducing me to a new series and author.

Livia J. Washburn's website, and I like the pictures about her dogs (they are adorable). I was sad to learn two of them are no longer with us.

There is a little corner for sudoku, my husband's favorite kind of puzzle. Also she discussed a warning from the FDA not to buy dog treats from China. Some dogs have gotten sick from them. She either buys those from USA or makes her own.
