Everything Bundt the Truth

FIRST IN THE SERIES – EVERYTHING BUNDT THE TRUTH – released November 2, 2016

Getting accepted into the dinner club can be murder…

Everything Bundt the Truth tied for FIRST PLACE  in the Suspense Novel category of the 2017 IDA Contest. The IDA is sponsored by Oklahoma Romance Writers of America, but is open to all works of fiction in digital format.

Recent widow Jane Marsh strives to recapture a rich, full life by joining an exclusive dinner club, but is barred when her housekeeper is murdered. Having passed off a store bought Bundt cake as her own creation, she may have committed a culinary crime, but never murder! This book is first in a series set in trendy Denver, Colorado where Jane strives to put youthful fun back into her life by riding a bicycle downtown on her lunch hour in a suit and heels, smoking cigars, eating at hipster restaurants, and re-entering the dating scene, even if her dates prove to be peculiar.

Included are menus and ideas for readers to start a gourmet dinner club of their own.

Not According to Flan

Jane Marsh wants to shake off the empty nest syndrome, plus the notoriety of the death of her first and second husbands, by starting over in a new place. She sells her family home to move to a far northern suburb of Denver. At the same time, Jane’s dinner club is undergoing a transformation, and a new man—a gourmet chef—enters her life. But, things turn sour when, on the day Jane moves into her new home, she discovers a dead body. She cannot feel at home in this town where she’s surrounded by cowboys, horse pastures, and suspects. Not to mention where a murder was committed practically on her doorstep. How can she focus on romance and dinner clubs when one of her new friends—or maybe even her old ones—might be a murderer?
