Book Spotlight - Stirring The Plot by Daryl Wood Gerber - 3rd in Cookbook Nook mystery series

Stirring the Plot by Daryl Wood Gerber
Third in The Cookbook Nook Mystery series
Penguin Books, Berkley Prime Crime

Release date - September 30th 2014

Halloween in Crystal Cove, California, is a big deal, involving a spooky soiree where the Winsome Witches, a fund-raising group, gather to open up their purse strings and trade superstitions. But party magicians, fortune-tellers, and herbalists are only the beginning of this recipe for disaster…

Jenna Hart has packed The Cookbook Nook chock-full of everything from ghostly texts to witchy potions in anticipation of the annual fund-raiser luncheon. But there’s one unexpected addition to the menu: murder.

When the Head Priestess of the Winsome Witches is found dead under mysterious circumstances, there’s no logical answer and plenty of blame to go around. With her aunt, Vera, unable to call on her ability to foresee the future, Jenna will have to use more than just sleight of hand and a few magic tricks to conjure up the truth…

What a perfect book to read to get ready for the Fall Season and Halloween! I really enjoy cozy mysteries, and this sounds like a very interesting story!  I'm really looking forward to reading it!

A fun tidbit for mystery buffs, Daryl was also an actress and co-starred on "Murder, She Wrote", as well as other TV shows. Daryl is originally from the Bay Area and graduated from Stanford University. She loves to cook, read, golf, swim, and garden. She also likes adventure and has been known to jump out of a perfectly good airplane. She has been happily married for over twenty-five years, and Daryl and her husband have a grown son who has flown the coop.
