Review of THE GINGERBREAD BUMP-OFF, A Fresh Baked Mystery by Livia J. Washburn



What better way to spend the holiday and winter season than by curling up with a good cozy mystery.  My latest find is The Gingerbread Bump-Off by Livia J. Washburn.  The small town feel and the comradery between four senior citizens sharing a grand old house in Weatherford, Texas, gives this mystery a sense of special warmth.  The cast of characters is four senior citizens, all retired teachers. It’s a unique lifestyle, and they’ve all become the very best of friends. Phyllis owns the house and shares it with “sort of” boyfriend, Sam, Carolyn and Eve.  Much to everyone’s surprise, Eve, seems to have landed yet another “Mr. Right,” and is getting married on New Year’s Eve.  To Read More Follow This Link

Free Novelette-- Naughty or Mice by Livia J. Washburn

Dan Callahan's daughter was supposed to take care of her fourth grade class's pet mice over the Christmas vacation—or so she claimed. Melissa Logan, the little girl's teacher, wondered why she had gotten close with the handsome single dad, only to have him back off unexpectedly. But when the mice went missing, the truth about everything came out, and the search for the elusive creatures led not only to unexpected secrets from the past but also to the answers that two lonely people had been seeking without even knowing it.

NAUGHTY OR MICE is a heartwarming Christmas novelette from award-winning author Livia J. Washburn. Funny, poignant, and romantic, it's a charming "tail" you won't soon forget.

Available at Amazon for free December 9th - 13th.
