A New Read, and a Favor

A big warm 2018 hello to all of you!

Today, Dial M For Mousse (Emergency Dessert Squad Mystery # 3) is out!!!!   It’s available in mass market paperback, digital, and audio (with the large print edition to follow in March)! The story itself is fun as the suspects in Winnie Johnson’s latest mystery are an eclectic bunch, which makes her sleuthing even more of a challenge. All the regulars are back to lend their support; Renee, Mr. Nelson, Bridget, Greg, and Jay. And, of course, there are some brand new emergency dessert names that should make you giggle. 🙂


As for the blurb on the back of the book–voila…

Murder takes the cake in an irresistible Emergency Dessert Squad mystery from the national bestselling author of The Silence of the Flans.

The Emergency Dessert Squad business is booming, with owner and baker Winnie Johnson working overtime to satisfy the emergency cravings of Silver Lake, Ohio. Her latest order, a plate of motivational desserts for an artists’ retreat, is just what she needs to keep her mind off her own relationship woes.

But Winnie’s problems seem like trifles when she discovers the body of retreat owner Sally Dearfield mere inches away from five oh-so-eccentric and viable suspects. Now, this baking detective must uncover the inspiration behind Sally’s murder before another creative genius is iced.


Now, for the favor part of this post.  I’m actually on a trip with the kids this week. We’re taking advantage of the college break for one, a work break for the other, and being within striking range of the other so she can participate for a few days, too.  I have a rather *ahem* momentous birthday coming up next week and so we’re celebrating. 🙂    The *only* tricky part in regards to the timing of this trip is the fact that Dial M for Mousse is out today and I’m not going to be on social media all that much.  DD #1 won’t be joining us until later in the week as per her work schedule, so she may be able to help out on my FB page a little, but any and all additional shout-outs I can get on this book today would be hugely helpful.

If you can say something on FB, feel free to lift the book picture from this post. The correct FB page to reference for me is my AUTHOR page (not my personal page):  https://www.facebook.com/laurabradfordauthor/

If you’re a Tweeter, my handle is @bradfordauthor and the publisher is @BerkleyMystery and it’s always good to tag them.

Anything  you can do to help spread the word on this release would be hugely helpful!  I’ll be back to my daily posts here on Tuesday, Jan 9th. There might even be a picture or two… 😉

Thank you!
