Eclair and Present Danger a Top Ten Read…

Saturday, December 31st, 2016

Éclair and Present Danger (Emergency Dessert Squad Mystery # 1) was named a Top Ten Read in 2016 by Facebook’s Chatting About Cozies page.

Here’s the list (in no particular order according to the site’s administrator, Linda Langford). 🙂


And it seems this feat is a perfect time to remind you that Book # 2 in the series–THE SILENCE OF THE FLANS–will be out on March 7th and is available for pre-order now.

Happy New Year, everyone!

A Churn For the Worse (Amish Mystery # 5) has been given a nod for best pun title of 2016 by Criminal Element. And Criminal Element is taking votes to decide which of the 12 is THE best.

It would be kinda fun if A Churn for the Worse won, wouldn’t it?
