LET'S GET COZY! A CLUE IN THE STEW: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
A CLUE IN THE STEW 
A Soup Lovers Mystery 
BY CONNIE ARCHER 
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Soup shop owner Lucky Jamieson stirs up more trouble in the latest mystery from the national bestselling author of Ladle to the Grave

When Lucky Jamieson opens up By the Spoonful to host an event with a famous author, she’s not expecting a bunch of nuts to descend on her small-town soup shop. But the author’s exasperating entourage—from a prickly publicist to a snippy son and his tipsy wife—give fresh meaning to the phrase, too many cooks spoil the broth.

The evening is more than spoiled, however, when it ends with a homicide. When the manner of the murder—as well as another recent unsolved crime—echoes the author’s fiction, Police Chief Nate Edgerton realizes he has a copycat killer on his hands. And Lucky hopes that one of her regular customers who has mysteriously gone missing isn’t involved. Once again, the soup shop owner will need to stir up some clues to find her friend and catch a cunning killer—before things really take a tureen for the worse…

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
“Writing about Vermont and the By the Spoonful Soup Shop has been a marvelous trip home — home to winding roads, brilliant autumn trees and the winter snows of New England.”

Connie Archer was born and grew up in New England, ice skating on neighborhood ponds, clamming on the beach at Cape Cod and skiing in Vermont. “I love every season in New England, but my favorite month is May when the lilacs bloom at the first sign of warmth.”

She attended Boston’s Girl’s Latin School, where she spent six years wading through Caesar’s Gallic War journals and the twelve books of the Aeneid. Happily, her life wasn’t all study. As a teenager, Connie spent her summers performing in a children’s theater troupe that traveled the suburbs of Boston, mounting productions in parks and children’s hospitals. After majoring in biology at Northeastern University, she did an about face and earned a degree in English literature. Since then she’s worked at many different jobs — laboratory technician, cocktail waitress, medical secretary, and dinner theatre actress, to name just a few.

Connie lives in Los Angeles with her family and a cat named Basil.

I visited Connie Archer's website, and I read about Vermont (which was interesting as I didn't realize that it once was an independent republic, and it had its own coins and postal service). And hogs likes all of Ben & Jerry's ice cream flavors except for Mint Oreo.
