Check out the Cover for Blackberry Crumble

Shauna Gibby at Deseret Book never ceases to amaze me. She's come up with yet another fabulous cover and I couldn't wait to share it! Blackberry Crumble will hit stores in March of 2011.


“Modern Miss Marple: A Magnet for Murder?”
by Jane Seeley, feature reporter, The Denver Post

Local “celebrity” Sadie Hoffmiller has been involved in a number of unfortunate situations that have taken her to crime scenes from London, England, to Miami, Florida, and even in her own backyard of Garrison, Colorado. But is she truly an unwitting bystander in all these investigations? Or is she something more? Is she, perhaps, even the cause . . . ?
***
The word is out about Sadie Hoffmiller’s amateur detective work, but it’s not the kind of publicity Sadie wants. When Jane’s article threatens Sadie’s reputation in the community, she accepts her first investigation-for-hire and travels to Portland, Oregon—if only to give herself some space from her whispering neighbors. And from Pete, who's sending her mixed signals about their budding relationship.
Sadie hopes the Portland air will clear her head, and she is eager to get to work for May Sanderson, who has suspicions about her father’s untimely death. Putting her detective skills to the test, Sadie delves into a complicated past that includes a business partnership that didn’t end well, several unsavory family secrets, and more than a few motives for murder.
Sadie is afraid she might crumble under the pressure, but in a new place with new recipes, she finds herself more determined than ever to uncover the answers buried in scandal, insatiable appetites, and pure and simple greed.

I love the new cover! You've made my mouth water in anticipation for the new read and the new recipes! Can't wait for it to hit the shelves!

That picture looks very familiar. Is it wrong to admit that there were both blackberries and syringes on the counter when I made the crumble recipe? Yeah, probably so.

Love the cover, and can't wait to read it!

Kara said...

Yummy! My only question is: What kind of syringe is this? I've never seen anything like it...measuring 1.6 ml? Oh, well, this is creative writing, right? :-)

Yeah! I cannot wait! I am so excited. I got my 15 (almost 16) tear old daughter hooked on your Sadie books. They are so fun.

I have read all of your books and am dying for you to write more. No pressure. ;-)

Congrats on running a half marathon. I ran last year and you beat me handily (my best was 2:41). I am going to get faster this year too. ;-)

I meant to say that I ran 5 half marathons last year. ;-)
