Imogen’s spent her twenties in Seattle, saving every penny and missing every party, to follow her dream of opening her own bakery.

When that dream goes up in flames, she accepts a spot in a mysterious baking contest—one she doesn’t remember entering. She travels to a bustling, medieval village off the coast of France and discovers an enchanting world of magic and mystery, and learns that she, too, possesses powers.

Unable to so much as cast a spell, Imogen struggles to keep up with the other witches and wizards who have come from all over the magical world to the Water Kingdom’s big competition. She juggles relationships with a sweet new friend, a snarky baking fire, and a brooding, handsome baker. As Imogen falls for this bewitching world, she fears she won’t master her magic in time to win the job of Royal Head Baker, and will be forced to return to the shambles of her non magical life.

It only gets worse, when a competitor drops dead in the middle of the big white baking tent, and Imogen’s the prime suspect. Now, she’ll not only have to survive the vampire and psychic judges, but also clear her name by finding the real murderer, before they strike again.

With a killer on the loose, a missing prince, and the Summer Solstice Festival fast approaching, Imogen will have to bake like her life depends on it- because it just might.

The Sunday Salon used to be a meme but was getting so huge it became unmanageable, so it is now a Facebook group that has become an
informal week in review gathering place for bloggers.

It is also a place to share our thoughts about things of a bookish nature.
HAPPY SUNDAY EVERYONE!

Pumpkins & Apples

Last Sunday we braved the wind and chilly temps to enjoy the day at Waldvogel’s Farm. Mr. Dollycas and I haven’t been there for about 17 years, when we took our kids to the pumpkin patch to get their pumpkins. The place has really changed. They now charge admission with over 40 things to do and plenty of neat places for pictures like this huge swing. I love family days like this.

The grands also had their picture taken with some animals. Look closely, that is a piglet behind Natalie 🙂

Alpine Ranch Pics and Ponies

Then yesterday was a Natalie day which meant a visit to the Tom Dooley Orchard. We came home with cookies, pies, apple butter, honey, and apples to make kuchen and crisps. They also had pumpkins, like this one. 

I love these weekends, we have to squeeze in as many outdoor things before the snow flies. I always have a huge smile after days like these.

CREPE FACTOR

Crepe Factor (A Scrapbooking Mystery)
Cozy Mystery
14th in Series
Setting – Louisiana
A Berkley Prime Crime Mystery (October 3, 2017)
Mass Market Paperback: 320 pages
ISBN-13: 978-0425266717
E-Book ASIN: B01AHKY37I
goodreads-badge-add-plus

The Winter Market in the French Quarter is in full swing, but murder isn’t taking a holiday in the latest from the New York Times bestselling author of Parchment and Old Lace…

The holidays are a busy time for scrapbook shop owner Carmela Bertrand—but not so hectic that she doesn’t have time to enjoy browsing the booths at the Winter Market with her best friend Ava. The last thing the ladies expect to see is a lurching man stabbed by a serving fork, dying in front of them.

The victim is loathed restaurant critic Martin Lash, who posted his scathing reviews on the Glutton for Punishment website. And the prime suspect is New Orleans restauranteur Quigg Brevard—who was seen giving the critic a tongue-lashing minutes before someone stuck a fork in him. An old flame of Carmela, Quigg asks for her help, which does not please her current beau, Detective Edgar Babcock, to say the least.

Before her relationship is the next victim, Carmela needs to find a murderer who had no reservations about punishing the culinary curmudgeon…

Scrapbooking tips and recipes included!

About The Authors

Laura Childs is the New York Times bestselling author of the Tea Shop MysteriesScrapbook Mysteries, and Cackleberry Club Mysteries. In her previous life she was CEO/Creative Director of her own marketing firm and authored several screenplays. She is married to a professor of Chinese art history, loves to travel, rides horses, enjoys fund raising for various non-profits, and has two Chinese Shar-Pei dogs.

Laura specializes in cozy mysteries that have the pace of a thriller (a thrillzy!) Her three series are:

The Tea Shop Mysteries – set in the historic district of Charleston and featuring Theodosia Browning, owner of the Indigo Tea Shop. Theodosia is a savvy entrepreneur, and pet mom to service dog Earl Grey. She’s also an intelligent, focused amateur sleuth who doesn’t rely on coincidences or inept police work to solve crimes. This charming series is highly atmospheric and rife with the history and mystery that is Charleston.

The Scrapbooking Mysteries – a slightly edgier series that take place in New Orleans. The main character, Carmela, owns Memory Mine scrapbooking shop in the French Quarter and is forever getting into trouble with her friend, Ava, who owns the Juju Voodoo shop. New Orleans’ spooky above-ground cemeteries, jazz clubs, bayous, and Mardi Gras madness make their presence known here!

The Cackleberry Club Mysteries – set in Kindred, a fictional town in the Midwest. In a rehabbed Spur station, Suzanne, Toni, and Petra, three semi-desperate, forty-plus women have launched the Cackleberry Club. Eggs are the morning specialty here and this cozy cafe even offers a book nook and yarn shop. Business is good but murder could lead to the cafe’s undoing! This series offers recipes, knitting, cake decorating, and a dash of spirituality.

It is also a place to share our thoughts about things of a bookish nature.

It has been a rough few weeks here in the U.S. Our prayers go out to all those affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma and those affected by and fighting the wildfires out west. There will be a telethon on television on Tuesday night and ABC had a “Day of Giving” last week. While both these efforts and the Red Cross seems focused on hurricane relief you can also give to the Red Cross for those affected by the wildfires.

Back to School

The three grands went back to school this past week. Kaden in 4th Grade, Natalie in 5K and Remi in 4K. They are growing so fast and summer ended much too soon for this Nana. I am so excited for them and what this new year brings. Their smiles sure make me smile. 🙂

Losing my son to suicide has been so difficult. Since then I wake up thinking about him, go to sleep thinking about him, and basically think of him almost every minute of the day. I never want any other mother to feel the pain I feel. Being disabled and unable to drive leaves me pretty home bound but I have this computer and I use it to promote suicide prevention and awareness year round but since September is designated as Suicide Prevention Month and September 10 -16, 2017 is designated as NATIONAL SUICIDE PREVENTION WEEK I strive to highlight facts, tips, and warning signs in my quest to #StopSuicide on my personal Facebook and Google + pages every day of this month. My family is also participating in a Walk for Hope on September 23 in memory of Kris. Donations are always welcome.

If you are in crisis, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255) or contact the Crisis Text Line by texting TALK to 741-741.

Happy Sunday Everyone!


Long story – As a blogger I am on Facebook every day, connecting with friends and family, talking about books, promoting Great Escapes Book Tours, playing Words with Friends, you know, normal stuff. Wednesday morning a few minutes after I posted for the first time, a friend messaged me about a message she had received from me. I had not sent her a message. Then I saw my account had sent a lot of messages. I quickly posted that “if you receive a post from me, don’t open it, I have been hacked.” Then I changed my password, sent feedback to Facebook that I had been hacked and started to delete permanently several hundred messages.

Then about an hour later, friends were sent another message, not my me! I changed my password again. Then I received a reply from Facebook directing me in the steps to follow to “clean my account”. Following those steps I found the app the hacker had attached to my account and was able to delete that, but not before another group of messages was sent.

I was trying to follow to rest of the steps but I kept receiving an error message that said “this address has been block by the user”, which would be me! I was so upset. I started Skyping” with my husband because he is more tech savvy than me but with him not sitting here and seeing the screens he was not much help.

I switched over from Chrome to Firefox and was able to complete all the steps. Then I went back to Chrome and saw in the small print of the error messages I was receiving “check your extensions” so I went into my Chrome settings and sure enough, an extension had been added that blocked the Facebook help messages.

I thought I was done, but no I was just getting started. Someone, maybe more than one of the person, not only reported that “a friend has been hacked” to Facebook but also reported that I was “sharing malware”. They quarantined my device. To gain access from this computer to Facebook they wanted to remotely scan my computer to be sure there was no malware. I had run a security scan myself in the midst of all this drama and it found 1 questionable thing that was blocked. I was really scared, how did I know this was a legit thing. Maybe it was a hacker.

After talking again to my husband and receiving another verification from Facebook I let them start their scan. It got hung up at about 49% and then my internet went out. I thought “oh, great! I am so stupid.” I have found out since the internet outage was local and had nothing to do with the scan. My husband was on his way home and would be here soon so he told me to start the scan again, so I did. Again it hung up at about 52%. I was absolutely losing my mind.

My husband thought it was an internet problem more than a Facebook problem so we started it again. It was now about 8 p.m. We worked on a plan for me to use a different computer the next day if necessary and I went to read. About 11 p.m. I checked the computer again and the scan was just finishing and found no malware. I posted a test post on Facebook and went to bed.

The next day I was able to post on my fan pages, comment on posts in my news feed and even post to my news feed, but when I tried to post directly to my personal page I was told that was restricted until later in the day which I didn’t understand that but soon things were back to normal.

Moral of the long story,

  1. Change your passwords often.
  2. Don’t open messages that only have a link with no explanation.
  3. Check the Facebook page of the person who sent you the link to see if they have posted they we hacked. If they haven’t tag them in a post telling them you think they have been hacked.
  4. When you report the situation to Facebook be sure to check the right boxes. While I was glad this worked out and now know my computer has been scanned by two sources it would have been devastating to lose my account because I was said to be “sharing malware”. It would mean 9 years of posts, pictures and memories on several pages and groups.

Fun Day Monday!


This past Monday my family headed to Wisconsin Dells for a Family Fun Day and we had such a good time. We started at the Timbavati Wildlife Park where the grandkids were able to hold a baby kangaroo, my oldest daughter was kissed by a giraffe and Mr Dollycas got up close and personal with a camel.

 

 

 

 
 

 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 

 

 

 

Then we took a ride on the Original Wisconsin Ducks!

 

 
 
 
 
 

We finished the day at Buffalo Phil’s Pizza and Grill where the food was delivered by a model train. We were then headed home when we got caught up in a massive traffic job on the interstate due to road construction. But that couldn’t damper the wonderful day. We knew our angel Kris was with us that day too. Thunderstorms were in the forecast all day and they would have ruined all our fun. There were a few sprinkles in the morning when we left home and a few late in the afternoon as we were walking down the main street of Wisconsin Dells but the storms seemed to go around the city. Wisconsin Dells was one of Kris’ favorite places and we all shared memories and talked about him and for the very first time there were no tears. We all know we carry him in our hearts and know he made our day extra special.

If you have the chance to visit Wisconsin Dells you will love it, there is so much to do. It is the “Waterpark Capital of the World” 🙂

Nothing is simple when you’re thirty-fifth in line for the British crown, least of all marriage. But with love on their side, and plans to elope, Lady Georgiana Rannoch and her beau Darcy O’Mara hope to bypass a few royal rules…

With Darcy driving me out of London in a borrowed motor car, I soon discover that he isn’t planning to introduce me to the pleasures of sinning in secret—as I had hoped—but to make me his wife!

Of course, there are some quibbles to be dealt with, such as my needing special permission from the King to marry a Roman Catholic and the question of where we might live after the honeymoon. Though he will inherit a title, Darcy is as broke as I am. Even his family’s Irish castle has been sold to a rich American who now employes Darcy’s father as a hired hand.

Throwing these cares to the wind, nothing could deter us from our mission—except perhaps the news that my future father-in-law has just been arrested. It seems the rich American was murdered and Darcy’s father had more than enough motive to do the deed. With the elopement postponed, we head for Ireland where he insists he’s innocent, and it’s up to us to prove it—for better or worse.

E-Book ASIN: B071LFD6JV

Julienne has her ideal job as an event planner at a prestigious resort. During a luncheon event she coordinated, a renowned celebrity pastor is killed next to the buffet. All eyes turn to her as the suspect. If she wants to stay out of jail or even keep her job, Julienne needs all the help she can get to solve the crime.

She has her work cut out for her with a vengeful high school rival now reporter, the public demanding she be fired, plus family who knows what’s best for her, and a boyfriend who doesn’t understand her. She turns to friends and a new ally to uncover who wanted to put the pastor on ice.

Julienne goes undercover and investigates a local swingers group as she follows the trail of clues before they go cold. Can she gather enough suspects and motives to convince the police to widen their investigation? Can she do it before the killer sets his murderous sights on her? Will her personal life ever be as simple as unveiling a murderer?

Praise for ICED: A Resort to Murder Mystery
by Avery Daniels

A great read…
~Babs Book Bistro

There’s a lot to be said for the story line and Julienne is a likable character…The resort certainly has a lot of promise.
~Christa Reads and Writes

The story moves along quickly as danger to Julienne escalates.
Her friends are quite charming and the new neighbor (and his dog) surprisingly attractive.
~Laura’s Interests

…a story full of memorable characters, en engaging story line, and clever plotting.
~Bea’s Book Nook

This is a quick read mystery, full of characters and quite an explosive case!
~Varietats

Iced was just fun and the characters all of them were delightful. Well the suspects weren’t too delightful but the rest of Julienne’s friends, neighbors and relatives were…
