Back in March one of the authors I chat with from time to time on Twitter clued me in to an author I somehow hadn't heard of yet -- Ann Charles. She was pretty certain that I would love her books knowing that I love mysteries with a cozy and humorous slant and I love pretty much all things paranormal. I immediately went to Amazon and added her first two books to the ever-growing collection on my Kindle app.
Between waiting for John's bus in the afternoons, walking to and from work with phone in hand, and putting off sleep a little too long here and there, I finally started and finished the first one this week (and the first quarter of the second book in the series).
Before I was even half-way through Nearly Departed in Deadwood I knew I needed to get the main character, Violet, into a lunch.
* cinnamon sugar popcorn tossed with dried pineapple
* marinara sauce topped with cheese "Deadwood" (to be tossed with the zucchini & squash)
* zucchini & yellow squash slices topped with cheese daisies
* italian herb & mushroom risotto topped with cheese boot
I refuse to tell you the significance of any of it (well, aside from the popcorn & pineapple ... those are just because I want a snack). You'll just have to get the books if you want to know!
