From today (Monday, September 19, until Friday, September 23) you can get a free copy of book one in the Holly Holmes cozy culinary mystery series - Cream Caramel and Murder.
With its stunning turrets and beautiful rose gardens, I always thought Audley Castle was perfect, set in the idyllic English village of Audley St. Mary. It’s a place I love to call home. But behind the trimmed hedgerows, stately gardens, and birdsong, a killer is waiting…
What readers say:
"What a hoot! Instead of Audley castle, it's more like Oddly castle! Everybody is a real character, the security chief needs to get a grip, the family members are terribly interesting, the murdered man is a real bozo with only one small brain, and even Holly the sleuth has a grandma who isn't wrapped too tight. Great sleuthing with plenty of plot twists, red herrings, and laugh yourself silly situations. Enjoy!"
"A great cozy mystery with tradition, Lords, Ladies, a modern baker intrigued with everyone and everything around her, and a murderer wanting revenge. This story gives you a little bit of everything! Great characters, great writing!"
"I truly loved the characters in this book, they were so vivid and fun! The writing was well done and the story was interesting and took a few turns that kept me guessing. So happy to have a new series by this author. I will patiently wait for the next one."
"Loved it. A lighthearted read that strikes the right cord between humour and seriousness. The characters too are the perfect blend of autocratic aristocracy and the down to earth commoners. A great plot that revolves around a murder of a guest at the castle. But who is the culprit?"
"Scrumptious start to a new series. Holly and Meatball make a great team and can sniff out the culprit together. The setting is enjoyable and I am curious to see where Holly's relationship goes with Alice and Rupert."
"A fun read featuring Holly Holmes, great cake baker and her dog, Meatball. She works in the kitchen of Audley Castle creating mouth watering desserts. Characters are wonderfully created and believable in that setting."
