JUST ANOTHER MANIAC MONDAY
By JENNIE MARTS
Thanks so much for hosting me on your blog today! I am excited to introduce you to the Page Turners Book Club and share a recipe.
I write romantic comedy and my series is set in the small town of Pleasant Valley, Colorado. It’s centered around a wonderful group of women in a book club. The women range from their teen years to their eighties and each book features a different woman and her story.
Every book has romance, friendship and mystery because in Pleasant Valley, dating can be deadly. These women are easy to fall in love with as they search for romance and clues while eating really great desserts!
Just Another Maniac Monday- Book 3 in the Page Turners series released this week. It’s Edna’s story and this character is a funny, sassy eighty-year-old who considers herself an expert on murder due to her extensive knowledge of CSI and crime-show television episodes. She gets the surprise of her life when her Monday morning game shows are interrupted by the arrival of John Collins, the love of her life…a man she thought had died years ago after being accused of murder.
John Collins is back, bringing with him a charming smile, a dog named Havoc, a second chance at love…and a threat of death. Danger surrounds this former bad-boy, and even after a lifetime apart, he still ignites a spark in Edna. A spark she thought she’d buried decades earlier.
This book flashes back to the sultry summer of 1955 as Edna tells the love story of her and Johnny and more than the weather gets hot and steamy. But the past has a way of catching up to you and a deadly threat has followed John to Edna’s door. Edna, with her sarcastic wit, a pocket stun-gun, and a few hare-brained schemes, is ready to fight for the man who still makes her pulse race.
Falling in love all over again, Edna must choose to risk it all to save the man she loves. But is finding your long lost love worth losing your life?
The Page Turners are always eating and Edna is famous for her cinnamon rolls! I recently saw this cute recipe idea for Cinnamon Rolls you make in a waffle iron and thought it was perfect for those of us on the go that might not have time to wait for home-made dough to rise. This one is so quick and easy, I think even Edna would approve! (See recipe below.)
