In honor of my sister Tammie's birthday, check out this funny cozy with a birthday theme!

From USA Today bestselling author Catherine Bruns comes another deliciously deadly culinary mystery...

Spring has officially arrived, and while the weather outside may still be frightful, Sally Muccio is feeling especially delightful as she prepares a homemade family dinner in honor of her husband’s birthday. Sal’s determined to make it an unforgettable night for Mike and even includes homemade fortune cookies like the ones her bakery serves, with messages personalized for each guest.

The evening is memorable, but not as Sal had hoped, when Mike and a family friend find themselves in the middle of an armed robbery...and only one will make it out alive. It’s just the beginning of more grief for Sal, who soon discovers the robbery is related to a scheme that spells financial ruin for her family. Add in her morbid father’s book signing at the bakery complete with coffin shaped cookies, a sister who won’t stop eating them, and an accidental gig at a local strip club, and Sal once again finds herself in deep dough. Only this time, there may not be a way out...

*Recipes Included!*

  4. Happy Birthday, Tammie! Have a great trip and enjoy the ride! Too bad you couldn't just keep heading north and spend a little time in Syracuse, NY (I'm near there, hint, hint). Hope you have lots of good times and delicious new and different (and familiar ones, too) treats!
