I've been working on moving all my Yankee Belle Café recipes over to an archived cooking blog that's easily searchable. It's called In the Presence of Pie and I think it has most of my recipes from the past six years. (SIX YEARS!!) You can find it right here.
So, hop on over and take a peek around. I'm working hard on my new cozy mystery series (book six releases this week) and there are ten books planned... but I never really know if I'll stop there or keep going!
If you'd like to check out the first book, it's always free right here. :)
Kitty Swift travels around the sunny Yucatan peninsula assisting luxury cruise ship groups as an interpreter for the deaf. After a disastrous broken engagement, she's perfectly content to spend her days with her service dog, Chica, and a motley crew of wealthy vacationers. Her life revolves around playing Bingo, enjoying the chocolate fountain, and passing along the occasional complaint about the quality of the bed sheets. On a cruise ship the food is good, the music is lively, and everyone is friendly.
Life is quiet, just as it should be... until murder arrives in the night.
At the top of a Mayan pyramid in the humid jungle, one of her tour group is found sacrificed to the gods. A clue left at the scene makes it clear this is a deeply personal act of revenge― and the killer may have another victim in his sights.
As the entire tour group is brought in for questioning, Kitty and Chica find themselves in a race against time. A hurricane is bearing down on the city, the cruise ship is set to depart, and they’re sequestered in an embassy house with a vicious murderer.
The only person standing in her way is an enigmatic attaché to the American embassy who doesn't take kindly to all her questions― especially about himself.
Should Kitty be on guard against the mysterious detective, or are they birds of a feather in search of a killer?
Here is a peek at the other books! You can check them out right here.
