$25 Amazon/PP-1-WW-Murder in Cottonwood Springs: A Cottonwood Springs Cozy Mystery Book #1-Dianne Harman Ends 11/8

This is book 1 in a brand new series by Dianne Harman! FYI-although all the recipes are really tempting me--there is a cookie recipe which has this cookie monster drooling! Recipes can be found at the end of the novel.

Brigid moved back to her hometown of Cottonwood Springs to be near her sister who owned a bookstore there. Besides--she was at loose ends--a divorce-then the publishing company where she had been an editor went bankrupt and closed. Editing can be done anywhere there is a computer-and she was allowed to keep the authors she worked with so------She packed up her belongings and headed home. The house she purchased had a big Newfoundland dog. The owners could not take him with them--would Brigid like to keep him? She agreed--the dog was a big furry love bug!! Her closest neighbor came to visit and welcome her to the neighborhood--he was a hunk--She started to reacquaint herself with all the old friends who either still lived there or had moved back. She also inadvertently invited one of the authors to come and stay with her for a bit--the author had writer's block--Brigid hoped that a change of scenery would help her.

Brigid's sister's bookstore was a welcoming type place as was her sister. Of course there was a book club held there. Brigid's best friend who owned a B&B always attended. The first book club meeting Brigid attended-her BFF was late-even though she was bringing the refreshments. Not like her at all! Brigid and another of the women went to see if something was wrong---they found her dead-murdered--on her kitchen floor!

Brigid was asked if she would help find the killer--she said yes-to the consternation of her friendly next door neighbor. There really were an awful lot of suspects--but most of them had air tight alibis.

So, who in this small town had committed murder and why?

I thoroughly enjoyed this book with it's quirky small town inhabitants--and as for that big furry Newfoundland--LOVE.

I am eagerly awaiting the next book in this series.
