The Silence of the Flans (Emergency Dessert Squad Mystery # 2) is finally here!!
And if you loved the first book, Éclair and Present Danger, I think you’ll really enjoy your follow-up visit with Winnie and the gang. You can find a teaser (in Winnie’s own voice) at Dru’s Book Musing. Winnie’s post will give you a quick glimpse at the mayhem in store for her in the new book.
If you found yourself drooling over some of the desserts Winnie makes in the book, I included three recipes in the back. Two of them you can see in pictures via:
**My recent visit to Mystery Lovers Kitchen where I made Winnie’s Black-and-Blue Cookies. The giveaway associated with this post is now over, but the post and the recipe/pictures are still going strong. 🙂
**The amazing Kim Davis of Cinnamon and Sugar and a Little Bit of Murder made Winnie’s Apple Kootchy-Kootchy-Kook Kuchen and not only are the pictures of the kuchen mouthwatering, Kim also made a video of her making the delicious dessert. So be sure to check that out HERE.
I hope you enjoy The Silence of the Flans. If you pre-ordered it in advance of it’s release–thank you!! If you purchased it on launch day, or plan to purchase it during launch week–thank you!! If you’ve requested your library to carry it–thank you! If you enjoyed the book and took the time to tell a friend and/or write a review–thank you! I couldn’t continue to write all these books without the support of my amazing readers.
With just 10 days under its belt, DEATH IN ADVERTISING is garnering some really nice reviews.
Here’s a sampling:
Tobi and the other characters are so likable that you’ll wish you had your hands on book 2 right away – not because there’s a cliffhanger (there isn’t) but because you just want to keep spending time with them.
~Reading Is My SuperPower
Death in Advertising has a fun, quirky set of characters (including a couple of African Gray parrots) and a story-line that kept me guessing. This is a great start to a new series from Laura Bradford.
~The Book’s the Thing
Death in Advertising was a fun, quirky mystery and I loved the humor that was laced throughout the story, which made it an absolute delight to read.
Filled with humor and a story so well written you will be guessing to the end.
~Shelley’s Book Case
Laura Bradford has seriously blown me away with this book!
~Lisa Ks Book Reviews
Honestly, if you wanted a cozy mystery to pick you up, make you smile, and even give you the chance to look at ad jingles differently this is an incredible book for you. Actually, just any reader looking for a five star book, should pick it up.
Bradford gives us plenty of interesting characters with a variety of motives…DEATH IN ADVERTISING is a promising start to a new series.
~Cozy Up With Kathy
The story is fast paced with surprises around every corner. I was engaged from the first chapter…
~Sapphyria’s Book Reviews
One thing you can count on in any of Laura’s books is a strong cast of characters who truly care for each other. Tobi has a wide and varied assortment of friends, neighbors, and family who all support her throughout this book.
This is a delightful debut for this new series. The characters are very engaging and I really love this theme.
~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book
Tomorrow is the day DEATH IN ADVERTISING–the 1st book in my Tobi Tobias Mysteries–releases!
This series is primarily available in Electronic format as a way for me to expand my reading base, thereby (hopefully) introducing new people to all my series. That said, the Tobi Tobias Mysteries are/will be available in traditional book form as well. You can find the trade paperback-sized book ($15) and the E-version ($3.99) at all major online vendors.
Beside the fun cast of characters in this series, another benefit is the fact that the first three books in this series will all come out this year. So if you love DEATH IN ADVERTISING, you only have to wait until July 11th to read 30 SECOND DEATH (book # 2), and December to read DEATH GOES TO… (book # 3).
