When Cookie Berelli, dress designer for full figured women, discovers her private investigator dead in her salon, she calls on a few friends to get her out of trouble.
The story features a cute little dachshund Cookie named Sigmund Freud because he's such a good listener. She has a bunch of crackpot ideas for how to catch the murderer, and Sigmund, the trustworthy dog he is, follows right along, sometimes even discovering a clue or two himself. When the murderer discovers she's on his trail, Cookie has to hurry or she'll be his next victim.
Included in this cozy mystery are recipes--standbys from her Norwegian and Italian heritage such as Grandma Berelli’s Pralines (“Worth going to jail for”), Cookie’s Maple Candies (“So good they’re criminal”), Nana’s Kringlas (“To kill for”), Cookie's Chocolate Cover-Up Fudge ("Perfect for spying activities"), and Blood Red Spaghetti Sauce with Bad Boy Meatballs, among others, are available throughout the story to break up the mayhem.
For a free copy of CANDY, MURDER and ME, put a comment below this entry and I'll save you a copy.

Today, I'm getting my new young adult thriller ready to send to an agent who requested the full manuscript after reading the first five pages.
This is exciting. Every time an agent requests a full, my little heart pounds like crazy. Could this be it? Will I get representation?
You never know.
DANGEROUS is about a younger sister who knows her older sis is dating a murderer. She has to figure out how to stop her, even though older sis is head over heals over this rich, handsome guy. Even though the police chief thinks she's crazy. After all, she's always reporting crimes that turn out to be simple misunderstandings.
Will Cassie get the evidence she needs to send this guy to jail before he kills her sister...and maybe her, too?
I'll let you know.

Bellinger Beauty, complete at 73,000 words is a standalone mystery or it could be the first in a series of Zoe Gale mysteries. This story could appeal to fans of Ross Macdonald and Sue Grafton.

Carolyn is finishing up a young adult romantic comedy. More about that when we decide whether to go Indie or traditional route with that one.
Tony and Carolyn are spiffing up a coming of age story for boys, based on Tony's life in NJ in the l950s.
Meanwhile, we're offering a FREE COPY of Forensics by the Numbers this month. Here's a brief description:
Feisty forensic nurse examiner at NYC's busiest hospital for assault and murder cases, Jewel Connor has a talent for getting late night assignments and sparring with the egotistical cop on her investigative team. When her DA-friend turns up on the examining table, dying, Jewel searches for an explanation with an assist from her millionaire husband and attack dog, Max. Secrets from her past threaten to erupt and she has no control over what will happen then. Her cop partner warns her to stay out of the investigation, but Jewel ignores him. If she doesn't watch out, she may soon end up on a forensic examiner's table herself.
To receive a free copy of FORENSICS BY THE NUMBERS, tweet about the contest, including copying the address for this web site and copy in the address of your Tweet in a comment below
OR write about the contest on your Face Book page and include a copy of the address of your Facebook comment;
