Death by Chocolate

As it’s Easter Monday it’s the perfect day to welcome back Julie Lindsey! Although we hope your chocolate eggs weren’t spiced with something…memorable 😉 After gorging on chocolate, Julie’s latest book, Death by Chocolate is the perfect antidote and is the in the first in her Killer Confections series.

I’m baaaaaaack……>!!!!

Okay so this time I’m on the Death by Chocolate blog tour, which means no romance talk! The lady in this novel killed her husband and she’s not feeling super awful about it. LOL. In Death by Chocolate, an idea I got in church grew legs and took off. Dead serious.

I was watching these church ladies ladle chicken soup into Styrofoam containers. Everyone thanked them and hugged them and smiled. I sipped my soup and wondered what those ladies were like at home. What about when they took off their simple suits and took the pins from their hair? Did they light up a smoke and toss back a brandy? If they did, how would anyone ever know? What if one of them was a drug dealer? How cool would that be? (I mean of course totally not because drugs are back. Crack is whack. Just say no and things kids.) BUT those sweet little church ladies could really cause a lot of damage and get away with it. No one would suspect them and they know everyone.

Voila!

Ruby Russell was born.

Ruby’s an emotional mess. Kind of bumbling. A nervous ninny. So, bless her heart everything she does goes – w.r.o.n.g. But what’s a best friend if she won’t help you cover a few murders? Am I right? So,  there you go. Death by Chocolate was written and now it’s here : ) and I am a little bouncy.

I thought I’d share an excerpt or the trailer before I go away and plot something else completely insane.  I’ll let the ladies decide what they want to include, but I hope if you pick up Death by Chocolate, you will put it down smiling.

 

Death by Chocolate

Ruby Russell has reached her limit. When she discovers her hipster husband has a dirty little secret, she whips him up a Viagra-infused-chocolate mousse punishment, but in the morning, her husband’s a stiff. Armed with a lifetime of crime show reruns and Arsenic and Old Lace on DVD, Ruby and her best friend Charlotte try to lay low until after Ruby’s son’s wedding, but a nosy therapist, meddling minister and local news reporter are making it very difficult to get away with murder.

As always, we love Julie’s blog posts and can’t wait to read this book. We might get some ideas from it ourselves… be warned guys.

  1. I remember talking to a woman who was part of an altar guild at her church and the amount of power struggle going on was amusing to hear about – that’s why your speculation about the true nature of those around us is no natural. As a writer, you know all cannot be as it seems.

    I loved the book promo and the “rising” font and the retro images are just about perfect.

    • Love the idea of a power struggle at a church. We often wonder about what people are like in private, because you can never tell.

  2. This book made me laugh in all the right times and I enjoyed it. I am pretty sure all of us have thought about “getting rid” of someone at one time or another but this lady and her friend take the “cake” (hee hee pun intended).

    • we haven’t read it yet, but we’re really looking forwards to it.
