Last week's winner is:
Congratulations!!! I'll be contacting you to find out which book you wish.
Inherit the Word has been out for a couple of weeks. Thanks to all of you, it's selling well. It hit the Barnes and Noble list at #9 and Bookscan at #12. Honestly, these numbers baffle me, but my editor is thrilled!! (I sure like to keep her happy.)
In the story, a grill fest is taking place. The contestants are challenged with coming up with a novel and tasty grilled cheese sandwich. What fun, right? Not so fun when one of the contestants is murdered. But the contest continues. The mayor says that the victim would have wanted it that way. She was, after all, the eight time winner.
So off we go, grilling sandwiches and, um, grilling suspects.
Quoting a great review by Dru Ann Love on Dru's Book Musing: “Murder, betrayal, and a grilled cheese contest are found between the pages of this wonderfully prepared drama and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for the residents of Crystal Cove in this delectably appetizingly series.”
Here's a recipe that I hope you'll enjoy. It's included in the book. Katie, the chef for the Cookbook Nook's café, created it. I love the combination of pears and blue cheese. Hope you will, too.
On that note, this will be the last week for a giveaway to celebrate the release of INHERIT THE WORD. I'll be giving away your choice of a Cheese Shop Mystery or Cookbook Nook Mystery. So leave a comment to enter.
Maybe even answer these questions for me...
Do you like contests? Do you enter simply to win or to win the prize that is being given away? If you win a book, do you read it? What's your favorite kind of thing to win?
Good luck to all! And if you share the link for this recipe, tell me and you'll be entered twice!
