Things are a little too hot to handle for famous culinary-mystery author, Maddie Montgomery, in her normally quiet neighborhood set in the Houston suburb of Abbott Cove. Especially after her neighbor, Randall Rathburn, has a heart attack and rams his vintage car into a light pole. Though his death is ruled an accident, another of Maddie’s neighbors insists that Randall was murdered, and he implores her to investigate. But Maddie isn’t on board with the half-baked idea, not until she attends the over-the-top funeral where she develops some suspicions of her own. That’s when she decides to take the leap from crime writing to crime solving. After all, she doesn’t exactly want a killer running around her cul-de-sac . . .
But the murder of her neighbor isn’t the only mystery she’s got cooking. When her publisher goes belly-up and her agent happily dumps her in favor of younger, dystopian authors, Maddie boils over into a full-blown career crisis. And while she tries to simmer down, her new role as amateur sleuth only stirs the pot even more. Then from car chases to stakeouts, and from a neighbor who owns a suspicious amount of spy gadgetry to a widow who seems a little too merry, Maddie’s first case has her head spinning like the beaters on her handheld mixer. And soon Maddie finds that solving a crime in “real life” is a lot more difficult . . . and a lot more dangerous . . .

LOVE this — and MC a cozy author? I’m in.
It does look like a terrific book. I’m adding it to my towering pile of books to read.
Thank you so much Maryann for hosting my new cozy mystery here today. And I have to say, while you’ve got a fantastic blog and website, I absolutely love the “It’s Not All Gravy” title the most. So clever. I look forward to checking out your many books. Thanks again, and all the best to you!
Pleased to help spread the word about your book, Cindy & I’ve added it to my wish list. Love the cover and the story premise.
The title of my blog was the title of a weekly humor column I wrote many moons ago for a Dallas suburban newspaper, The Plano Star Courier. The paper was a daily, and I was thrilled to be published there. The column was about the fun and foibles of parenting a house full of kids and the title just seemed so appropriate, even though one son said, “But Mom, we hardly ever have gravy.” I just smiled at him.
This sounds like a super fun book to read! Thanks for sharing, MaryAnn!!
Thanks to you for stopping by, Jan. I’m definitely adding this one to my towering TBR pile. I can’t resist. LOL
