Whodunit and How
Mysteries abound in everyday life! There are missing socks that will never be found. Abominable snowmen and Sasquatches waiting to be discovered. A Chuppacabra, a Nessie.
And what ever happened to Amelia Earhart? Why was there only one bathroom in the Brady Bunch house? I mean, there were 8 people--with Alice--9 and only one bathroom? C'mon.
I'm not sure, but I think there's someone coming into my house and just randomly creating messes all over the place--leaving things on the counter, pulling the covers off the beds so they look unmade, dropping crumbs all over the floor, leaving wrappers and half-full glasses everywhere. It's insidious. Someday, I'm gonna nab this person. At first I thought it might possible be my husband and children making these messes, but they emphatically deny it. So I can only jump to the plausible conclusion that an intruder is responsible.
Well anyway--my point is I hope you'll come and see me speak and SIGN my very first cozy mystery novel: Misfortune Cookies on Wednesday, November 5th at Pappadeaux. We're going to solve a mystery together. Are you a natural born sleuth? Do you have what it takes? Find out next month.
AND YES, THERE ARE FUN DOORPRIZES--TWO THIS TIME--AND IF YOU BRING A GUEST YOUR NAME GOES INTO THE HAT FOR A PRIZE AS WELL!
