Vintage Kitchen Mystery #7
In the brand-new
Vintage Kitchen Mystery from the author of 'Leave It To Cleaver',
one out to spice up their life means to crush a helpless victim...
cookware enthusiast Jaymie Leighton is thrilled
at the prospect of meeting an elderly descendant of her town's founding father,
not least because she's known to possess an enviably large collection of
antique spice graters. But the curmudgeonly woman also has substantial real
estate holdings, and at the moment she's engaged in a fierce battle with
a property developer who wants her to sell off her old buildings in the name
of progress. When Jaymie goes to visit the woman and discovers that there's
been an attempt on her life, she polishes up her sleuthing skills to find
out who was behind the foul deed.
A VINTAGE RECIPE!
Her first instinct is to suspect the developer, but as she digs deeper
into the case, she learns that her older new friend has purportedly been
the victim of numerous criminal acts-- all of which point to different suspects.
Unsure if the stories are true, or simply the confused ramblings of a senior
citizen, Jaymie sifts through the clues hoping to expose the culprit, but
she knows that if she keeps stirring up trouble, she'll be the next on the
would-be killer's list.

Reviews for Leave it to Cleaver...

There was never a time
when I didn't want to be a writer, and it was how I always defined myself.
But even when I wasn't writing -- which at first was most of the time!
-- I was reading. Since the moment my mom handed me an Agatha Christie book
when I was twelve, I've been a devoted mystery fan, and the passion lives
It may seem odd, then,
that I started my writing career as a Regency romance author, gradually
moving to the paranormal romance, and then historical mystery writing. I
truly enjoyed my time writing romance, and I believe that it was the perfect
training ground to force me to focus on creating character.
But the urge to write
and become published in mysterty still held me captive. I finally achieved
my life's dream with the publication of the first Vintage Kitchen Mystery: A Deadly Grind,
in May of 2012.
Aside from writing, I
have a lot of hobbies and passions. I collect vintage bowls, especially
Pyrex and kitchen utensils. I also have a sizable collection of teacups.
Cooking and baking muffins -- of course! -- are beloved pastimes.
I have the best friends and family in the world, and I am passionately fond
of tea and anything sweet, especially brownies ;-) I enjoy hobbies: crochet,
cross-stitch, and beading, among other crafts.
But writing takes precedence
over everything, and I truly love hearing from readers, treasuring the friends
I've made over the years!
So... drop me a line

Donna Lea Simpson's NEW book!
The Chaperone's Secret
Classic Regency Romances Book #19
As chaperone to the Season’s most desirable young miss, Amy Corbett
has two specific duties: to ensure that her charge’s
reputation remain spotless, and to see her betrothed to an exceptional beau.
Given that the coquettish Lady Rowena manages to maintain an air of propriety
while being a flirt of the highest caliber, Amy knows her job should be
easy— if only the calculating young aristocrat weren’t so set on toying
with men’s hearts, including that of her latest prey, the debauched Lord
Like other gentlemen of high standing and low tastes, Lord Pierson’s
restless desire for excitement had driven him into a life of squalor and
scandalous social blunders. Finding himself drunk and mud-spattered in a
gutter one night, he spies an angelic apparition in a passing carriage and
is overcome by a will to reform—surely such a woman could give him hope of
rebirth. When he learns that the anonymous beauty is Lady Rowena, he vows
to coax that flicker of warmth into a flame.
As Rowena lures the unsuspecting Pierson ever closer to heartbreak,
Amy realizes that for all the talk of his wastrel ways, he is actually a
gentle and caring man to be championed and cherished. And in an unguarded
moment, the unassuming Amy and downtrodden Lord Pierson will discover that
they possess kindred souls—and will make a daring decision to follow their
own true path to happiness and love . . .
