Waiting On Wednesday 5-17-17

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating. French Fried by Kylie Logan Expected Publication: June 2017 Pre-Order: Amazon Poison du Jour The Statue of Liberty is 130 years old, and for the struggling residents of Hubbard, Ohio, any opportunity to bring in tourists is reason enough for a celebration. Laurel Inwood and her aunt, Sophie, are pitching in. Sophie’s Terminal at the Tracks, a former greasy spoon turned charming ethnic eatery, will be offering French cuisine for the entire week.   For expert help with their quiche and escargot, the ladies turn to Raquel “Rocky” Arnaud, a former French chef and friend of Sophie. What looks like a match made in heaven turns rank as quickly as buttermilk on a summer’s day. Rocky turns up dead and when her nightly red wine shows notes of oak, cinnamon, and poison, Laurel turns from souffle to sleuth.   INCLUDES A RECIPE Why Wait? Because I love cozies! I am always on the look out for more cozy mysteries and this one just sounds super intriguing and cute! I can’t wait to read it.    How about? What are YOU… Read more »
