Takeover: @denaehaggerty + Baking Tips & a Skinny Baker #cozymystery

Never Trust a Skinny Cupcake Baker
Death by Cupcake 1
Cozy Mystery
April 11, 2016

A mystery with a heap of laughs, a generous portion of romance, and just a smidgeon of suspense.

Callie’s life is rather awesome. She owns a successful bakery and teaches German literature at the local university. There’s just one tiny problem. She has no self-confidence when it comes to her body. And then there’s the little matter of her being accused of murdering her pole dancing instructor. There’s no way Callie’s going to risk losing her teaching position and thus she embarks, with her best baker bud Anna, on a journey to discover the real killer. Between stripper auditions and a detective who insists Callie is the woman of his dreams, it’s a roller coaster adventure. Cupcakes not included.

Nom. I love cupcakes although I have to admit, I'm not the best baker. Good thing Callie's around to give me, and you, tips... or something to that effect.

Dear Mr. Knightley
Samantha Moore has always hidden behind the words of others namely, her favorite characters in literature. Now, she will learn to write her own story by giving that story to a complete stranger.

Lizzy & Jane
Elizabeth left her family s home in Seattle fifteen years ago to pursue her lifelong dream chefing her own restaurant in New York City. Jane stayed behind to raise a family. Estranged since their mother s death many years ago, the circumstances of their lives are about to bring them together once again.

The Brontë Plot
When a rare-books dealer goes to England, she discovers more than just the famous writing haunts she discovers how to love and be loved in today's modern world.

I read The Brontë Plot and I absolutely loved it! I was even thrilled when I found out that Katherine Reay's books are all inspired by Austen and Brontë. So I have to ask Ms. Reay why, after all this time, among many other great authors and stories, why still return to Brontë and Austen? And from a writer's perspective, why are readers still fascinated with the characters they created and why they continue to be the archetypes for moderns heroes?

When Phoebe Meadows gets struck by a strange light in the stockroom of Macy’s, life as she knows it flies out the window. As if being hit by lightning isn’t bad enough, she’s accosted in the subway by a man with a missing hand, arrives home to find a raven on her kitchen counter, and her neighbor, Ingrid, shows up dressed like a gladiator hell-bent on protecting her.

Before Ingrid can shuttle her to safety, Phoebe is kidnapped and tossed into one of the Nine Worlds where she’s quickly forced to come to terms with what she is: A valkyrie. The only problem is, she has no idea what that means.

After a narrow escape, she finds an unlikely ally in Loki’s son, Fenrir. Together the valkyrie and the wolf must battle their way back to New York City and reach the valkyrie stronghold where Ingrid is waiting for her. But with danger and obstacles at every turn, she might not live long enough to learn the full truth about who and what she really is…
