TODAY on  my Fresh Fiction blog
for a new chance to win
an NYPD mug and a 
signed copy of my new
A Brew to a Kill.

Good luck!

Below is last week's contest
and it is now over.

Help me celebrate a fantastic Kirkus 
review that was published in this week's printed issue. The review is about A Brew to a Kill, my 11th Coffeehouse Mystery, which goes on sale next week. 

The NYPD plays an important role in almost all of my Coffeehouse titles. No surprise since the cops of New York's Sixth Precinct are addicted to the coffee that my amateur sleuth Clare Cosi serves in her landmark Greenwich Village shop.

In A Brew to a Kill, you'll meet a brand cop character, a detective from the Highway Patrol division named "Mad Max" Buckman. Max works for AIS, the Highway division's Accident Investigation Squad, and he becomes Clare's biggest annoyance and her greatest ally as she works to solve the crime of a brutal hit-and-run that takes place outside of her coffeehouse.

In tribute to the NYPD and the coffee
they run on, I'm giving away a
signed copy of my book and this
fun NYPD Latte Mug, which is also
also fun to use for soup or cereal.

Comment on this post and
you'll be entered to win it!

Contest now over.

Key Lime Coolers

Key Limes are still in season, but they won't be for long! That's why I'm baking up this favorite today. I've shared this one before with you here in the Kitchen, but for those of you who missed it, I hope you enjoy it as much as Marc and I do. 

FYI: You can make these babies with other limes, too, including the standard Persian limes found all year long in local grocery stores. To get the recipe click here to download a PDF that you can print, save, or share. Or read the original blog post by clicking here.
