”‍‍‍This lighthearted peek into small-town secrets and rumors carries enough good humor, emotional honesty, plot twists, and recipes to entertain and satisfy.” — ‍‍‍Publishers Weekly

Wendy will happily attend in person if it fits these travel parameters:

Tallulah Jones’s ice cream parlor, Remember the A-la-mode, is struggling, and she’s stooped to catering a party for her sleezeball ex-husband Wayne and his arm candy girlfriend Brittany. Worst of all? Her dreamy high school sweetheart shows up on her front porch, swirling up feelings. Things go from ugly to plain old awful when Brit‍‍‍tany turns up dead and all eyes turn to Tally as the murderer. With the help of her hell-raising cousin Bree, her precocious niece Alice, and her long-lost love Finn, Tally has to dip into the heart of Dalliance, Texas’s most scandalous secrets to catch a murderer.

Despite some serious temptation, the only thing Wendy Lyn Watson has killed so far is a pint of ice cream. When she isn’t tasting her way from chai ginger chip to balsamic strawberry to Mexican vanilla, Wendy teaches American government and constitutional law to college students. She lives in a completely neglected historic home in North Texas with the most patient man in the world and the Tabby Congress (Tiberius, Blaze, and Squeak-a-Doodle). Between teaching, writing, volunteering with the Modified Dolls, and more, life is busy but the cherry on every single sundae.

“A multifaceted story...plenty of surprises...And ‍‍‍what an ending!” – New York Journal of Books

Diane‍‍‍ will happily attend in person if it fits these travel parameters:

Interior Decorator Madison Night might look like a throwback to the sixties, but she p‍‍‍roves that independent women can have it all. When a killer targets women dressed in her signature style—estate-sale vintage to play up her resemblance to Doris Day—what makes her unique might kill her. The police connect the new crime to a twenty-year-old cold case, and Madison’s long-trusted contractor is the leading suspect. As the body count piles up, Madison uncovers a Soviet spy, a campaign to destroy all Doris Day movies, and footage that will change her life forever.

‍‍‍‍‍‍LOVE LITERARY STY‍‍‍LE

‍‍‍Novelist Aaron Mite meets Laurie Lee at a writers’ colony and mistakenly believes her to be a‍‍‍ renowned writer of important fiction. When he discovers she’s a self-published romance author, he’s already fallen in love with her. Aaron thinks genre fiction is an affront to the craft. He often quotes the essayist Arthur Krystal, who says literary fiction “melts the frozen sea inside of us.” But Aaron doesn’t seem to realize that he’s emotionally frozen. The vivacious Laurie, lover of all things hot pink, is the one person who might be capable of melting him.
