Launch Party June 8th

You’re invited to a launch party!

Hot Fudge Frame-Up coverJoin me at the launch party for Hot Fudge Frame-Up.

It’s Book 2 in my bestseller* Fudge Shop Mystery Series starring Ava Oosterling and her Grandpa Gil, or “Gilpa” as she calls him. They’re two Belgians with a bad habit of finding bodies.

The party is at Mystery to Me Bookstore, 1863 Monroe St., Madison, on Sunday, June 8 at 2:00 p.m.

I’ll have a Fairy Tale Fudge Flavor to try, I’ll read a couple of pages from my new book, and we’ll add some roses for door prizes along with a few other items relating to my series set in Door County.


Do you love lighthouses?

The Eagle Bluff Lighthouse in Door County was chosen by the Great Lakes Lighthouse Festival Association to receive its honored spotlight for this summer. That lighthouse plays significantly in Hot Fudge Frame-Up.

LighthouseAt the launch party, I’ll tell you all about the lighthouse and the “murder tour” that I received by the wonderful docents last year. Bring your lighthouse stories to share!
