Yesterday I posted over at Inkspot about the new cover for Wined and Died, Home Crafting Mystery #5. It’s due date is July 11, 2011, eight months away, but it’s already available for pre-order on Amazon. I wrote about how I got the title (Thanks, Keith!), and gave a quick synopsis of the story:
Newlyweds Sophie Mae and Barr Ambrose are acting as surrogate parents to eleven-year-old Erin while her mother is away. When Erin stumbles into a dead psychologist’s notes regarding a homicidal client, Sophie Mae races to discover the identity of the potential killer. Clues lead her to the Grendel Meadery, a traditional honey winery operated by the tight-knit Swenson clan. Everyone has a secret, and soon Sophie Mae is up to her neck in deadly herbs and drug dealers while trying to juggle a handsome lothario, her responsibilities as a temporary parent, a major contract for her soap making business, and a strangely distant husband.
Sorry for the repetition if you follow both Inkspot and Hearth Cricket, but I love this new cover and had to share. Thanks to Lisa Novak for putting together another terrific design!
