Killer Acorn Pie
Another great way I love to celebrate the holiday season is with a tasty murder mystery! So, those of you who get an extra long weekend this week, I have a treat for you. My latest holiday themed cozy mystery is hitting Kindle today for only 99 cents!
This latest one combines the traditions of Thanksgiving with a phenomenon that seems to be popular among so many families right now. Escape Rooms! One friend of mine in particular even ran a home made escape room for Halloween this last month. This book is dedicated to her! (You know who you are 😁)
I also took inspiration and ideas from my college days and sprinkled them into this book, since much of the story takes place on a chilly campus during the quiet week of Thanksgiving when most of the students are off seeing family. For me, Thanksgiving week in college was one of my favorites because I usually stayed behind. I loved walking around campus and seeing just how silent it was in the snow. The quad in the book as well as the layout of the buildings is lifted right from my own campus experience.
Here is a picture to give you an idea of the winter wonderland Idaho could turn into during the cold months. Those were good and happy days for me, especially when I was married to my hubby.
All in all, this is one of my favorite and most nostalgic books I've written, and I truly hope you find it an enjoyable read this holiday week. I'm also very excited about my next book set during the week of Christmas as well.
To learn more, check out this book blurb from Amazon:
Ever make a misguided decision?
Thanksgiving is the busiest time of year at Pies and Pages, and shop owner Bertha Hannah is trying to bring in even more customers by offering free tickets to a local holiday themed escape room put on by the community college. While not exactly sure how escape rooms work, Bert knows that teens, college students, and families especially seem to love them.
However, when one of Bert’s employees comes in telling of how her friend died in the same escape room they’re promoting, the sale backfires. Worse yet, Bert’s detective boyfriend Harry Mannor seems to think Bert’s employee may have had something to do with it.
With sales on the decline and a murderer on the move, Bert rushes to prove her young friend’s innocence before it’s too late.
This book will spice up your holiday, buy now, while it’s hot!
